Default Found On Road Dead (FORD)

Ford has stopped all production of the F series truck.
Their biggest seller, and money maker!
Just after they stopped production on most all sedans and SUV's.

Over 7000 workers have been temporarily laid off at 3 truck plants in the US.
On top of 6500 workers laid off long-term at the car plants in Mexico, US and Canada.
This all started with an explosion and major fire at the Meridian Lightweight Tech. plant in Eaton Rapids, MI. That made sub-assemblies for the dashboard of all F series trucks.

First On Race Day....no more!

This is the problem with 'single-string' vertical production.
Remove any one little 'widget' from the production cycle, it all collapses.

F has already lost dramatic valuation, and it's going to go lower.
