what cars does America make at home? And will the tariff include parts


#3

Seems a very sound threat as we are also negotiating to eliminate all tariffs with the EU. Hard to negotiate without a stick and carrot.


#4

Darn.

Just when I’d saved enough by brown-bagging lunch every day to buy that Lamborghini I’ve always wanted…


#5

I’d love a Fiat cinquecento.


#6

A Fiat? I don’t know… Fix it again, Tony. :stuck_out_tongue:


#7

Oh yeah? I’d like to see you come up with something for ‘cinquecento.’


#8

No, you’d have to be James Joyce to do that.


#9

They are really cute, good on gas, and great for city driving.

I’ve been in the original version in Italy. It’s tiny.


#10

And parking. Every time I have to move the car for alternate side parking (New Yorkers will know what I mean) I wish very hard that I had a Fiat 500, or a SmartCar, or a Mini, or something like that.


#11

THAT will show those European car manufacturers like Ford, GM, and Crysler!!!

That’s something I was wondering. How many cars are actually shipped here from Europe, given that so many of their vehicles are made here anyway?


#14

I think the issue is more of assembly; many foreign parts are shipped here.


#15

I can speculate “NOT THAT MANY”


#16

Hyundai and Kia have parts production plants scattered thru out Alabama and Georgia.


#17

You missed a big one. Mercedes in Vance Alabama.
Unless it is under a shady name like Daimler…:thinking:


#18

I don’t think over a million cars annual meets your description
