GM President Mark Reuss says he's "tired of taking punches," but admits the automaker has a lot of work to do to repair its tattered image.

While December brought another sales decline for General Motors, there are some clearly positive signs, said Mark Reuss, the automaker’s president of North American operations, and that could bring an end to the sharp cutbacks the automaker has been suffering in recent years.

Several recent products, such as the Chevrolet Camaro, are in short supply, noted Reuss, during a media roundtable at the 2010 North American International Auto Show, and the automaker is looking for ways to bump up production capacity at several of its plants in the U.S. and Canada.
