This day in History - 29th October 1975

Postby ImpBarn » Thu Oct 29, 2009 5:55 am

The British car industry, particularly Chrysler UK was in really bad shape in 1975. John Riccardo gave the government an ultimatum: either they would fork out a substantial investment to save Chrysler UK, or the company would be forced to sack 25,000 employees. Sounds like today's government bailout attempts.
