TundraHeadquarters Now Tweeting

After ignoring Twitter for the last year and a half, we’ve succumbed to peer pressure. Our idols over at have a twitter feed and it’s actually kind of cool.

1. Gas stays below $2.50 a gallon (nationwide average).

Look for gas prices to spike in price in May at about $2.50, before falling to around $2 for the balance of 2009.

2. Ford sells Volvo.

This is an easy one – Volvo, while unprofitable, is an excellent nameplate and certainly has a value. The trick is finding an interested suitor…and financing for the deal. Assuming that the financial system stabilizes in the next 3-6 months, Volvo is as good as gone from the Ford family.

3. GM announces the closer of
