Famous quotes containing the word motors:
“When General Motors has to go to the bathroom ten times a day, the whole countrys ready to let go. You heard of that market crash in 29? I predicted that.... I was nursing a director of General Motors. Kidney ailment, they said; nerves, I said. Then I asked myself, Whats General Motors got to be nervous about? Overproduction, I says. Collapse.”
—John Michael Hayes (b. 1919)
