Driving this.

The f1 50 is the absolute profit bomb.

They make so much money with that truck.

Is a monster, an absolute monster.

So much money off of it and they sell so much of them it will be consistent way the prophet grabber for the company.

A lot of people who do not cover cars do not realize car makers will not tell us what their margins are.

They will not tell analysts what they are.

They do not have a sweet new navigator.

Gm is cleaning up that market.
