You're welcome.

Regarding Jaguar, I found the following at Wikipedia:

On March 26th 2008, Indian automaker Tata Motors reached an agreement with Ford to purchase their Jaguar & Land Rover operations; the sale is expected to be completed by the end of the second quarter of 2008.

Hey...just a little rant...

If you're going to post credible sites for information purposes...Wikipedia is NOT your best source. Something like CNN, MSN, NY Times, etc are much more reputable. Wik can be edited by ANYONE, so it's not always true.

It could possibly start a flame war, so I'm not gonna be the one to spill. But if it does start a flame war, I would gladly sit here and laugh at it

Oh I agree. The Wikipedia isn't always the best source but it is a mostly reliable source that is well cited and cross referenced.

In this case, the story is referenced back to a press release on Tata Motors own website. It doesn't get any more credible than that.

I'd like to see a good flame war too. We haven't had a good one since Sinhumane got the boot.

I think its possible for Ford to keep it going, however IMHO one of the big three is going to make it a big 2 sometime in the next few years. There is just too many of them now chasing a shrinking market (wait till the Chinese cars start arriving)
