You suggested, recently, that I talk to your accountant. I suggest you pay
him a visit yourself. Somebody's paying interest on those big Detroit
inventories. Sixty days' is more than enough and Detroit would love to have
their stock moving as fast as the Prius, the Camry or the Rav to keep their
interest expense low.

I'm wondering why CE White posts as two different aliases.

Because I post from two or three different computers. Some have a
newsreader installed, some do not. For ones with newsreaders, I am
cewhite. When I post from Google, I am Ed White. There is no
subterfuge involved, just different computers.

Aisin is large conglomerate. The hybrid technology came out of the
part of the company that was originally Aisin-Warner. This was a joint
venture between Aisin-Seiki and Borg-Warner many years ago (late 60s,
early 70s). Eventually this became the primary supplier of automatic
transmissions to Toyota. At some point Borg-Warner was kicked out.
Toyota has some ownership interest in what is now called Aisin AW Co.,
Ltd.. With Japanese companies it is almost impossible to figure out
who owns what. Still Toyota never mentions that they buy their
automatics from Aisin. I suppose since they own part of the company,
they don't have to mention that. Aisin also sells automatic
transmissions to Ford (6 speed for the Fusion for one) and GM.
