GM Dealers In W.Va. Wait For Bad News

Charleston, W.Va. (AP) -- General Motors dealers across West Virginia are on pins and needles as they wait for their fate to be delivered by Fedex.

Midway Motors owner Linda Teter received notice around 10:30 a.m. Friday that her franchise would likely be terminated by October 2010.

Still reeling just hours later, Teter directed her anger at Detroit.

Teter says it was GM's poor management, not hers that brought the auto industry to its knees.

Though she will try to persuade GM to remove her 80-year-old dealership from the list, she isn't optimistic.

At the very least, she plans to continue to serve customers without the GM name.

GM's letters were being delivered a day after Chrysler notified 17 of its 24 dealerships in West Virginia that it planned to cancel their franchises.
