You are aware that GM and Ford are, or have built multi-factories in China.

China is an opening market..so it makes sense for US manufacturers to build factories there.

However, I'll betcha that some of those Chinese made Fords and GM's find their way here.

And I doubt that Ford or GM are closing any plants in Mexico. If anything...those Chinese factories will replace plants closed in the US.

lol, crap! I just spit my beer all over my american flat screen monitor!

I think of in addition to the "Ford vs the Competion" Forum they should create a Ford vs toyota forum and have a big disclaimer saying something along the lines of if you are easily offended please enter but you must be over 18 to enter. Because by the end of the majority of threads lately it has turned into the same p$$sing contest.

That's some of my favorite members condensed into one nice little paragraph. It was hard not to laugh.

China is a huge potential market, any automaker including Ford will be working at keeping the Chinese happy.

Wow young man!
Surely you know better than this!
Where do you go to school? Does your teacher and mom know about your use of the English language.
Quote: You said, "does not way that much." Didn't you mean "does not weigh that much?" Do you know the difference in the two words? You also said, "wants her computer back so i mite", didn't you mean to say, "wants her computer back so I might?" Once again do you know the difference in the words or how to spell?
If it's your spelling you need to get on the stick. Your making our education system look very flawed. Oh I'm sorry it is flawed! That's what it is. Your just a product of a flawed system!
Don't bet of Ford being patriotic!.
Theyre money hungry and they are part of the supporters for the new highway from Mexico to Kansas and the new Amera Dollar. Or do you know about that.
Oh well I didn't come here just to pick on you but learn son.

I don't remember anyone stating that - !?! Wouldn't hurt none for American's to at least try to buy American. Just heard on the news last night that imports last year were $750+billion.

Here's a good site to do some research; http://internationaltrade.suite101.c..._trade_buddies

Look fair to you?

I looked at the link and it looks like if we close our borders up here in Canada you guys might be in trouble.

And it's called "sarcasm" Read through the Ford Field Says F-Series will stay #1 thread it will clue you in to where this is coming from.
