Isn't that interesting.  Things will be rocking in St. Peter it sounds like.  And no more E-tecs?

Sounds scary to me.  So I wonder how long the phone number at the bottom will be in service?  When that is disconnected I think the warranty period is over.  I would be pissed if I bought one right before this happened.  Hard to believe.

It will be interesting to see what they replace it with and how long that takes to get to market.
