This is the same mentality as the "Buy American" crowd that focuses on japanese cars........ like Honda, which ironically has more North American content than the average GM make. Ford Probe and Mazda 626 are built on the same line in Flat Rock, Michigan. "Buy American" mentality still has strong undercurrent here in Detroit.
To add to the irony-- during the heyday of "Buy American" that the auto companies supported, I visited Chrysler and Ford manufacturing facilities and saw German - not American - machinery bought and put in place to manufacture parts at each factory!! It was a case of "Do as I say, not as I do"!
