I will never buy an Asian or Korean car in my lifetime. I will only buy American or European cars, and attacking people who live in the Detroit area doesn't help either.

You know that a lot of the parts that go into American cars are made overseas, don't you? Some cars are made in Mexico too, and are 'considered' American made. Bring me back to life and I'll straighten all this crap out! And, I'd also like to talk to the Ford designers that designed the 1974 Mustang. What drugs were you idiots on when you penciled that design?

How about if those Asian or Korean cars are built right here in America? By American workers? Then what?
