Conditions for a Ford bailout

I think if the federal government is serious about helping the automakers with tax payer money the automakers should give something back. No I am not talking about recliners for the labor pool guys to sit in all day while they draw a check. I think Ford should have to use the money to retool one of their SUV plants to make this Ford Fiesta ECOnetic which gets 65 mpg. It would put all the other gas saving cars to shame. I remember back during the Carter years (shudder) my dad bought a diesel Volkswagen Rabbit to drive back and forth to work. Even with diesel being more than gas the extra MPG and the fact it would probably last longer would make it well worth it. heck I still see Rabbits on the road.
