Although Ford hasn't set a deadline for the sale of Volvo the same way that General Motors fast-tracked Saab, Ford's preferred bidder -- Geely -- is hoping to wrap up things on the double.

To that end, the Chinese automaker has already hired a team of consultants to plan the restructuring of the company to accommodate Volvo's operations. We're sure that Volvo and Ford are eager for closure, and we're happy to see Geely's optimism -- especially during such dark economic days -- but we might offer a couple of cautionary examples....
