Okay, so here's something we've thrown in the old wonder machine: Sweet Peet D., when he went to work as some sort of a consultant to Chrysler, stopped posting at Autoextremist. Then, when his tenure ended, he ramped the site back up again. He's made no bones about advertising his consultancy services on the site. But here's where it gets sticky: he took on Chrysler last week.
Chrysler Group town-crier Jason Vines offered a rebuttal, which Peter took a shot back at (and, for the first time in Jalopnik's nearly two-year history, wrote to notify us about). As for the aforementioned stickiness? Peter has now written a bit for Ford's "Bold Moves" site defending the American auto industry.
