Askin' the Experts w/the NYT

So the New York Times, in the midst of all of this fallin' sky hullaballoo about the state of the American auto industry, took time out to talk to a number of people within and peripheral to the auto industry about what America's manufacturers can do to get back on their feet. Jesse James talks about the superiority of Japanese and Germany vehicles, and then busts out with this: "Society's changing. Look, I'm a biker with tattoos, but I drive a Mercedes Smart Car and I would drive a hydrogen-powered one." How much you wanna bet Jesse's got a Gixxer motor in there?
