Well my ol 69 Toytoa land cruiser had 400,000+ miles on it without any issues except 2 clutches. And we cant forget the 78 SR5 that I used for construction truck........

The difference here is that back in the day each country was self sufficient, now all of our economies are intertwined and when one has a setback we all do, Its time for many of out to get your heads out of the sand and think globally

No, what my point was, as it is, all parts made here in the US or not, my trucks have been fine.

I agree, we're a global market now. In some ways that's better, and in others I wish it was the old days. But simple fact is, we can't go back. Now the issue is for everyone in this global market to learn to get along, and take our asses to Mars! LOL Star Trek FTW

But seriously, I agree with you. I've seen toyota Pickups last forever, so I'm not knocking them.

what i meant about asians stealing from us is that they will pretend to be working for Delphi, and come tour a factory somewhere in American and see what we are doing in it and what we are making, then they got to china and start doing the exact same thing only this time with extremely low paying Chinese people, so what happens is that us poor bastards lose our jobs becuase of near slave work copied what we were making and selling it for a much cheaper price.

That almost happened at the place where my dad used to work, but he knew Delphi had no meeting that day, nor he never seen 2 Asian Delphi business men.
