This year's J.D. Power International Automotive Roundtable turned into a testosterone show-down among the top brass in the Big 3.
When Tom Shaver, J.D. Power senior partner, asked Chrysler group's Wolfgang Bernhard if he and his Tomahawk V-10 motorcycle could take GM's Rick Wagoner and his Cadillac Sixteen in a quarter mile, Bernhard replied: "Any time."
Wagoner was asked who would win and quipped: "That's what I hired Lutz to do. If we swapped vehicles, Bernhard would win."
Shaver asked Bill Ford how he and his Ford GT would do in the race. Ford said: "I think they'd probably take me and it probably wouldn't be close until I shifted out of first gear."
