Fingers crossed that he beats the odds here.
Based on the fact that he essentially had a stroke during the surgery it's my read that he will live as long as he's on life support.

I say pull the plug. I hope that if I were in that situation that my family would let me go. A man of his wealth no doubt had the finest surgical team and the finest care that money could buy. The best was given him and it didn't work sadly. Living on a respirator isn't living in my opinion.

I was no fan of his leadership skills, but no one deserves cancer nor any of these complications.

I'm also glad I'm not a doctor. Having someone NOT pull through would weigh on me tremendously.

I wasn't a fan of his either, however, it's a shame he's passed away. RIP.

This industry needs all the car guys it can get. I'm hoping that FCA's best days are still in front of them.

Manley is intrepid. He will be absolutely fine.

I would like him to go outside the box and do two products: Hemi Giulia and Hellcat Ghibli. I'm saying that with a straight face. Heck even a Hemi Ghibli would be a delightful thing--it would require a new hood--but it would be a good thing.

I don't think you'll see "HEMI" on anything I but a traditional Mopar product. That's not to say that they wouldn't use that engine just not call it a "Hemi".

Well they used the Chrysler V6 from Kokomo and call it a Maserati V6 by Ferrari so automotive lying definitely happens in the auto would. I most decidedly DO think that marketing a Hemi Giulia and a Hellcat Ghibli--with those names in the USA--would double the sales of both sedans--an easy task given that both are tremendous sales failures. Maybe Manley should do the them both what Sergio did to the Dart and 200 for not selling. LOL
