I too would like to know why Harry thinks it's good that the Camaro "will once again be built right here in the good old U.S. of A." I live in the area where these cars are built in Canada and several friends are will be losing their jobs due to the production shift. So Harry, Do you like putting Canadians out of work?

Apparently you have the magic ability to read words that aren't really there. Care to point out exactly where in my post I said anything about whether it's a good thing or a bad thing that Camaro production is moving to the states?

 

I wasn't making a commentary, I was posting a FACT that I read on an online news site. How you see that as me saying it's a "good thing" is beyond me.

"And the man in the back said 'Everyone attack',

And it turned into a Ballroom Blitz,

And the girl in the corner,

Said 'Boy I wanna warn ya',

And it turned into a Ballroom Blitz"... :rolleyes:

And a lot of US autoworkers lost their jobs when the Camaro moved from Van Nuys, CA to Canada in 1993 so your point would be exactly what?

Evidently, some people don't care that this means more jobs for Americans, or don't understand that we live in a global economy. We in Tennessee are enriched for the many jobs that are provided by Nissan and VW, plus parts manufacturers like Denso, among many others. Wake up. Or maybe we should petition GM not to change anything because we're not going to like it anyway.

LOL... get serious...

Realy guys, this is getting rediculous.  Harry never said anything about being happy canadians are out of work or anything like that, he just posted that an AMERICAN car is being built once again in AMERICA.  What is so difficult to understand about that?  This entire thing is being blown WAY out of proportion.

Harry, reading between the lines it sounded like you were gloating a little bit about the production moving to the USA. Would you post the same article if the production was moving from New Jersey to Ohio? I don't think so.

Production moving from New Jersey to Ohio wouldn't be nearly as big of a story as production moving back to the US from Canada. The reason I posted in the first place is that I didn't even know that all Camaros are built in Canada. I had no idea that was the case, it was news to me, and I figured I'd pass along the info. No "reading between the lines" was necessary... although I find it odd that the people who did that and assumed that I was bashing Canada are all from Canada. Maybe you guys don't like the move, but how does me simply passing along a news item make me a Canada basher? Maybe you guys need to stop reading between the lines and just read the lines.   :rolleyes:
