    You sure? Last I recall, they were closing plants in Michigan, and Canada was building new ones. Seems since health care is free up there, companies would rather make things in Canada than in the US. Toyota is a good example.

    That's not 100% true. Toyota still has plants in the US, as does Subaru in Indiana, BMW in SC, etc. Many Michigan businesses are simply moving to other states where the economic climate is better for them. And yes, some are even moving to Mexico and Canada.

    The problem with Michigan industry is that companies can not stay in business here due to:
    1. unions (they have such a strangle hold on the auto industry its sick)
    2. corporate tax structures
    3. lack of business incentives to stay (local governments and the state)
    4. too many regulations that prohibit effective business strategies

    Granholm has failed on a monumental level to keep business here. I don't blame her, actually. I blame the stupid voters who kept her in office.

    Not to mention the big 3 US automakers are designing themselves into oblivion with fuel consumption standards from 1973

    they have their heads in the sand

    Their designs suck too. Have you seen the latest Ford lineup? Good god they're all fucking ugly. It's like a 3 year old designed their looks.

    I agree. The only American car I like is the Chysler Crossfire- and that's because German designers owned the project.

    But yes, archaic designs/standards are also killing the US auto industry.

    Blasphemy! The 1965 Mustang Convertable was (IS) an absolutely gorgeous car.

    ok, all MODERN american cars

    Ford, Chevy,.. Chrysler has some better suff, cuz of the German influence...

    But Ford ahd Chevy are fucking HIDEOUS. Cadillac is *trying*, but all of these companies..their designs just seem so... amateurish and obvious.

    It's like being clubbed over the head with the DESIGN BAT. No refinement, just chrome this, big boxy that, oooh let's stuff our lineup with OF THE MOMENT light trends that were over 2 years ago.
