The Detroit Free Press is also telling us that all of Ford's eight brands will survive the chopping block tomorrow morning. While Aston Martin is still up for sale, none of the brands will be killed off in the fashion of Oldsmobile's demise at the hands of General Motors. Of course, those who have beating the drum for Ford to get rid of the Mercury brand are being very critical. Accusing Ford of being too emotional over keeping Mercury, most are pointing out the obvious that funds spent on keeping the brand alive could be better spent elsewhere.
