    My Father always said that if China started making cars, that would be the end of the Automobile Industry in America ....

    They say the chinese love Buicks. They are about 50 years behind us in their automotive tastes, which makes sense as most of them didn't have private cars till recently.

    UAW keeps them from being cost leaders. This is one way to get around that. Good for them.

    You think someone here can live on what they make in China? If shit didn't cost so damn much here people wouldn't need so much money.

    We sold our soul to China and NAFTA. There is a limit to capitalism when it starts hurting our nation's work force, GDP etc.

    This is the model that conservatives love right here! The "company store" model!

    They already have a plant in Arlington.

    They'll be moving to Mexico soon, too.

    Some of the current Buick sedans aren't bad looking. If you like Sedans.
