DETROIT (WKZO) -- General Motors CEO Dan Akerson wants people to start buying cars and trucks over the Internet.  In a conference call regarding the automaker's third-quarter earnings, Akerson quickly pointed out that GM is not looking to bypass its dealers, but wants to make online buying easier.  A spokesperson says roughly one-thousand customers have bought a GM product after using the "Shop-Click-Drive" system, but less than ten did so without going to a dealer.
