The Chrysler Nassau concept is shown at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, in this Jan. 9, 2007 file photo. When Daimler gobbled up Chrysler in May 1998, the U.S. automaker was selling Jeeps and Chryslers by the thousands, building up profits and employing more than 126,000. Nine years later, the Chrysler that Daimler just sold to a private equity firm is much leaner with about 80,000 workers. But it's also having trouble competing in the global automotive market.
