Everyone's a joker, thanks to the Internet. An e-mail arrived at WAW from a GM designer, along with the photos below. “For those who don't know,” the e-mail reads, “MCM (Material Cost Management) is GM's program for removing cost from purchased parts. The results speak for themselves.” Yuk yuk yuk. Now, wouldn't this designer know that DaimlerChrysler AG claims responsibility for the tiny Smart car and has a material cost savings program of its own?
