Ford is in reasonably great shape. They just reported nearly a billion dollar profit for the past quarter.
The major difference between them and GM and Chrysler is that they were a little further along in their turn-around plan, and had the foresight to borrow a boat load of cash before the banks stopped loaning money when the financial market fell in the toilet.
Their problem now is going to be trying to get any help from the union when they are seeing profits.
