One of the few right moves by the uS was the excise tax on imported autos. Bring in the parts and assemble here, no tax. Imported the whole car and you big time. We lose some jobs for parts but get the whole assembly package. Some parts have even moved back into the US, including windows for Toyota, Honda, BMW, Mercedes, Ford, GM and Chrysler are now made in the US. Same for some the electronics, exhaust etc.
Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.
I know, I tried to find a video but couldn't. Mr Slave is a character on South Park, his (semi) catch phrase is "Jesus Christ" but he says it the way you would pronounce Gee Chrys
You do the math..... I'll do the alfredo!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!
American Motors, based in Kenosha, Wisconsin, traced its roots back to the early 20th century, selling cars under the Rambler name into the 1960s, then they started using AMC as their umbrella name (about the time the Javelin first arrived, in '68 or '69). At some point (maybe earlier) AMC merged with Jeep, based in Toledo, Ohio. In the early 1980s, AMC Jeep was bought by French carmaker Renault, who gave us LeCar, the Alliance and the Fuego. Then, a few years later, Renault spun off AMC Jeep, and sold it to Chrysler Corporation... mostly for the four-wheel-drive Jeep products. Renault pretty much pulled out of the US market at that time (but is still big in Europe). Jeep was part of the DaimlerChrysler combo, and is still part of the "new" Chrysler LLC.
It's like a soap opera...
