Magnequench
It sounded like idea at the time in 1985 and for a while it worked out.  But then GM sold Magnequench to the Chinese and for the salaried employees that went with the sale of the business, it was a disaster, as they all lost their jobs when the operation moved to China.  Of course, the hourly employees were able to come back to Delphi for jobs, but the salaried employees were left out in the cold.  A story that would be repeated many times as things started to unravel later at both Delphi and General Motors.
