Capital Corp of the West filed its Monthly Report of Operations
for the month ended August 31, 2009, on September 11, 2009, with
the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of
California, Fresno Division.

Capital Corp recorded net income of $278,170 in August from a
$48,817 net loss in July.  The Company incurred $97,068 in

total deficit.  As of July 31, 2009, the Company had $6,635,828 in

                  About Capital Corp of the West

Incorporated on April 26, 2005, Capital Corp of the West is a bank
holding company whose primary asset and source of income is County
Bank.  County Bank is a community bank with operations located
mainly in the San Joaquin Valley of Central California with
additional business banking operations in the San Francisco Bay
Area.  The corporate headquarters of the Company and the Bank's
main branch facility are located at 550 West Main Street, Merced,
California.

County Bank was closed February 6, 2009, by the California
Department of Financial Institutions, which appointed the Federal
Deposit Insurance Corporation as receiver.  To protect the
depositors, the FDIC entered into a purchase and assumption
agreement with Westamerica Bank, based in San Rafael, California,
to assume all of the deposits of County Bank.  As of February 2,
2009, County Bank had total assets of approximately $1.7 billion
and total deposits of $1.3 billion.  In addition to assuming all
of the failed bank's deposits, including those from brokers,
Westamerica Bank agreed to purchase all of County Bank's assets.

According to Capital Corp, although County Bank made no "subprime
mortgages," it had made substantial loans to developers for
acquisition, development and construction of residential homes and
condominiums throughout California's Central Valley.  Overbuilding
and an increase in foreclosures in the market resulted in rapidly
declining real property values, and contributed to the rise in
nonperforming loans.

Capital Corp of the West filed for bankruptcy on May 11, 2009
(Bankr. E.D. Calif. Case No. 09-14298).  Judge W. Richard Lee
presides over the case.  Paul J. Pascuzzi, Esq., at Felderstein

bankruptcy counsel.  Hagop T. Bedoyan, Esq., serves as counsel to
the official committee of unsecured creditors.  As of
September  30, 2008, Capital Corp of the West had $1.87 million in
total assets, $1.80 million in total liabilities and shareholders'
equity of $73,896.  In its Chapter 11 petition, the Company
disclosed $6,789,058 in total assets and $68,096,190 in total
debts.

                      About Chrysler LLC

Chrysler Group LLC, formed in 2009 from a global strategic
alliance with Fiat Group, produces Chrysler, Jeep(R), Dodge,
Mopar(R) and Global Electric Motors (GEM) brand vehicles and
products.  With the resources, technology and worldwide
distribution network required to compete on a global scale, the
alliance builds on Chrysler's culture of innovation -- first
established by Walter P. Chrysler in 1925 -- and Fiat's
complementary technology -- from a company whose heritage dates
back to 1899.

Headquartered in Auburn Hills, Michigan, Chrysler Group LLC's
product lineup features some of the world's most recognizable
vehicles, including the Chrysler 300, Jeep Wrangler and Dodge Ram.
Fiat will contribute world-class technology, platforms and
powertrains for small- and medium-sized cars, allowing Chrysler
Group to offer an expanded product line including environmentally
friendly vehicles.

Chrysler LLC and 24 affiliates on April 30 sought Chapter 11
protection from creditors (Bankr. S.D.N.Y (Mega-case), Lead Case
No. 09-50002).  Chrysler hired Jones Day, as lead counsel; Togut
Segal & Segal LLP, as conflicts counsel; Capstone Advisory Group
LLC, and Greenhill & Co. LLC, for financial advisory services; and
Epiq Bankruptcy Solutions LLC, as its claims agent.  Chrysler has
changed its corporate name to Old CarCo following its sale to a
Fiat-owned company.  As of December 31, 2008, Chrysler had
$39,336,000,000 in assets and $55,233,000,000 in debts.  Chrysler
had $1.9 billion in cash at that time.

In connection with the bankruptcy filing, Chrysler reached an
agreement with Fiat SpA, the U.S. and Canadian governments and
other key constituents regarding a transaction under Section 363
of the Bankruptcy Code that would effect an alliance between
Chrysler and Italian automobile manufacturer Fiat.  Under the
terms approved by the Bankruptcy Court, the company formerly known
as Chrysler LLC on June 10, 2009, formally sold substantially all
of its assets, without certain debts and liabilities, to a new
company that will operate as Chrysler Group LLC.  Fiat has a 20
percent equity interest in Chrysler Group.

                           *********

Monday's edition of the TCR delivers a list of indicative prices
for bond issues that reportedly trade well below par.  Prices are
obtained by TCR editors from a variety of outside sources during
the prior week we think are reliable.  Those sources may not,
however, be complete or accurate.  The Monday Bond Pricing table
is compiled on the Friday prior to publication.  Prices reported
are not intended to reflect actual trades.  Prices for actual
trades are probably different.  Our objective is to share
information, not make markets in publicly traded securities.
Nothing in the TCR constitutes an offer or solicitation to buy or
sell any security of any kind.  It is likely that some entity
affiliated with a TCR editor holds some position in the issuers'
public debt and equity securities about which we report.

Each Tuesday edition of the TCR contains a list of companies with
insolvent balance sheets whose shares trade higher than $3 per
share in public markets.  At first glance, this list may look like
the definitive compilation of stocks that are ideal to sell short.
Don't be fooled.  Assets, for example, reported at historical cost
net of depreciation may understate the true value of a firm's
assets.  A company may establish reserves on its balance sheet for
liabilities that may never materialize.  The prices at which
equity securities trade in public market are determined by more
than a balance sheet solvency test.

A list of Meetings, Conferences and Seminars appears in each
Wednesday's edition of the TCR. Submissions about insolvency-
related conferences are encouraged.  Send announcements to
conferences@bankrupt.com/

On Thursdays, the TCR delivers a list of recently filed
Chapter 11 cases involving less than $1,000,000 in assets and
liabilities delivered to nation's bankruptcy courts.  The list
includes links to freely downloadable images of these small-dollar
petitions in Acrobat PDF format.

Each Friday's edition of the TCR includes a review about a book of
interest to troubled company professionals.  All titles are
available at your local bookstore or through Amazon.com.  Go to
http://www.bankrupt.com/books/to order any title today.

Monthly Operating Reports are summarized in every Saturday edition
of the TCR.

The Sunday TCR delivers securitization rating news from the week
then-ending.

For copies of court documents filed in the District of Delaware,
please contact Vito at Parcels, Inc., at 302-658-9911.  For
bankruptcy documents filed in cases pending outside the District
of Delaware, contact Ken Troubh at Nationwide Research &
Consulting at 207/791-2852.
