Chrysler Group reported its first quarterly profit since the second quarter of 2006 on Monday, posting earnings of 6 million in the first quarter of 2011, compared to a loss of 7 million in the year ago period.

Revenue surged 35% year-over-year to .1 billion, as both sales volume and pricing improved. The company sold 18% more vehicles globally in the quarter.

Chrysler is still a privately held company; the U.S. government owns 9%, Italian car company Fiat owns 30%, and the United Auto Workers trust fund ownsthe majority.

The company plans to offer shares to the public late in 2011 or early in 2012, with Fiat expecting to own a 51% share by then, as part of a structured plan for Chrysler to pay back government loans and get back on its feet.

Chrysler announced plans last week to repay .8 billion in loans to the U.S. Treasury Department and another .7 billion to the Canadian government, which also pitched in to help the company as part of the 2009 bailout.

Sergio Marchionne, Chief Executive Officer, Chrysler Group LLC said, “Chrysler Group’s improved sales and financial performance in the first quarter show that our rejuvenated product lineup is gaining momentum in the marketplace and resonating with customers. These results are a testament to the hard work and dedication of our employees, suppliers and dealers, all of whom are helping Chrysler create a new corporate culture built on the quality of our products and processes, and simple, sound management principles.”

Marchionne added that the company is on pace to hit its worldwide sales target of 2 million vehicles for 2011, including 1.4 million in the U.S., despite the rise in gas prices.

Filmed – 12/13/16

UPDATE PLEASE READ: I wanted to clear up many questions and concerns people have had. The cops were called immediately after the first slide off. I called them personally myself and they were called again after the collision. They arrived around 30-40 minutes after the collision.

After the first Comcast truck appeared and the first slide off happened, we went to the top of the hill and slowed down traffic as much as we could.

The first Comcast truck then left the scene. You can see me at the top of the hill when he passes on the left of me. I retrieved some yard signs to act as warnings and was at the top of the hill when the second truck arrived. I then had the conversation with the second Comcast worker. The individuals that slid off were asking what he said and I went down to tell them. This is when the second truck pulled into the same location placing four cones down. Moments later the accident happened.

My wife was in the front yard taking coffee and hot chocolate orders for the people stuck from the slide offs. After she was almost hit, I was obviously more agitated. Then is when I talked to the worker again and then one of the drivers that slid off moved the yard signs to block the road and redirect traffic around a community.

Just to review:
– I did call the police
– I did help slow down traffic
– Some drivers were going too fast for conditions
– The truck that hit the car was going way too fast and ran off after the accident
– I did not film this to try and get anyone fired
– I did not upload this to try and make it go viral
– I contacted Comcast about the situation before uploading the video.
– I let Comcast know I had additional footage
– UPDATED: Comcast has contacted me to apologize today 12/15/16
– Threats have been turned over to the police and will continue to be

There is much more video that shows all of what I explained that is not in this short 3 min piece. I was concerned for everyone’s safety including the workers. Everyone needs to realize that this took place in about an hour time span. You are seeing a small window of it. To call for the heads of the workers, drivers, or us documenting it is just wrong. Please stay safe out there… SLOW DOWN… and have a Merry Christmas.

1967 Cadillac Eldorado first run – drive! Saved from decades of sitting dead

My 1967 Cadillac Eldorado will soon be turned from junk to treasure!..Some history about this killer caddy.. A technological tour de force, 1967 Cadillac Eldorado quickly established itself as the ultimate Cadillac.
Automobile Quarterly gave the Eldorado its 1967 “Design and Engineering Excellence” award. Car Life declared it “beyond the scope of today’s luxury/specialty concept … the sort of visually distinctive, tastefully luxurious, enormously expensive, individualistic conveyance which characterized the Classic Era of automobile design.” Cadillac simply called its new Eldorado the “World’s finest personal car,” while touting its “Elegance in Action.”
It was instantly the most popular Eldorado ever and sold 17,930 units that first year (only 2,250 ’66 Eldorados were sold). It was a bold, confident step forward for Cadillac.
Creased like a tailored Italian suit, broad shouldered, wonderfully proportioned, and devoid of extraneous bright work, the 1967 Cadillac Eldorado was a high point even in this heady period when GM styling as a whole set the pace for the American auto industry.
