    Now that Jap automobile makers, such as Toyota, assemble cars in America. If you buy a Toyota, is it still considered buying a foreign car? After all, they are employing American workers to assemble the cars, and it does help the American economy.

    Even the content of American cars by GM, Ford and Chrysler have a lot of foreign parts nowadays. Would they still be American cars if 60% of their parts came from outside the US but they were assembled here?
