Yep. It combines two nouns that are now obsolete, spick, "a nail" or "spike," and span, "a wooden chip." In the 1500s a sailing ship was considered spick and span when every spike and chip was brand-new.

Hey man, your car industry will very soon be like ours.

Ford is expanding production, knowing that liberals running GM and Chrysler, even with a 30 billion dollar taxpayer boost is doomed.

Meanwhile Chrysler and GM are forming a joint project for a new fuel efficient prototype that has 3 horsepower, gets 1000 miles to the gallon. It's called the Anal Intruder! It doesn't really go anywhere. It just makes you walk faster.
