My first job at General Motors was as a quality inspector on the assembly line. I was checking fits between hoods and fenders. I had a little scale and clipboard.

C. Wright Mills
When you look at the truck market in North America, you have to understand the customer, and that’s one of the things I think General Motors does really well.
