We’re well aware of the reported troubles of GM Europe. Though Opel and Vauxhall are not the only brands struggling in the Old World.

Can new negatives make a positive, as taught in middle school math class? We might hear an announcement at the Geneva Motor Show next month. And to all of our European readers, would this merger make sense to you?
