to the Japanese Branch

Who would have “thought” the BUY AMERICAN trend would be started by CANADA.  (See Below).


Idea…..  Japanese Branch of the Auto Tree…. 


Together make a “public service announcement”

Reminding American’s and Canadians that this is a “global economy” and your cars are made ALL OVER the world including America.  

Maybe show happy workers from  Toyota in California, workers from Honda in Ohio & workers from  Nissan in Tennessee, Subaru too.

Remind America that by buying Japanese their still keeping Americans employed!!!!!


Just a “thought”!!!!

If there’s a domestic car that speaks to me like no other, it’s Cadillac’s most recent CTS. I recently tested it in Sport Wagon trim, and believe me when I say there’s nothing better in the “compact” premium class. I say compact in quotation marks to emphasize the reality that this car, while competing with Audi’s A4, BMW’s 3, Lexus’ IS and Mercedes’ C, amongst others, is more of a midsize model than anything compact, fighting a more direct battle with Infiniti’s G in overall dimensions, and I suppose for respect and street cred too.

Truly, the G, also one of the best in the segment, is a relative upstart like the Caddy, and Lexus’ IS. The Germans have been at this compact premium game a lot longer, and while they therefore get the aforementioned respect and associated sales, the newer competitors aren’t undeserving. As mentioned, the CTS is one of the best of its type I’ve driven, easily outclassing some of its rivals in interior styling, materials quality, fit, finish and features, while posing a unique exterior design that is so attractive it leaves most of its competitors looking positively dull. So what happens when you lop a rear door off of each side and extend the C-pillar to form a rakish rear backlight and all-new sporty profile? You guessed it… you get the production 2010 Cadillac CTS Coupe.

It’s been a long time coming, but the CTS Coupe concept that stole the 2008 North American International Auto Show in Detroit is finally here in road-ready form, and due to a conceptual design that appeared more like a prototype than a concept it looks much the same now as it did when it received such universal praise, from yours truly included, which is a very good thing.

…………………….(I deleted parts of the article).

For now, let’s just revel in this particularly attractive 2010 CTS Coupe, a car that’s bound to turn heads and empty wallets, and gives two-door buyers another reason to spend their money in their home market instead of sending profits and jobs overseas. These days, folks, it’s something to be concerned about. We either start supporting our domestic economy as much as possible, or we accept the fact that stronger markets from abroad will soon own whatever is left of our respective homelands. Canada and the US are inseparably connected at the hip (Canada more than the US being that the vast majority of our production heads Stateside, and I’m not just talking automotive), so we’d better hope for a robust US economy if we want to enjoy continued strength here. In other words, we might want to consider buying Canadian first, when it makes sense, and American second. Fortunately for us, Cadillac will soon be producing a sporty two-door coupe equal to anything from Europe or Japan and better than some, so you won’t be giving anything up to buy domestic. Clearly, this is something to think about.
