How about driving directions, I'm not doing anything today and could get there pretty quickly after the show.

Unemployed auto workers staged rallies in Monroe and Dundee this morning to try to spur auto sales so they might be called back to work.
Frustrated by sporadic layoffs, members of Local 723, United Auto Workers, at the Global Engine Manufacturing Alliance (GEMA) plant at Dundee took to the streets with signs, leaflets, banners and flags to urge the public to "Buy American."

I headed up that way but I was getting such great mileage that I just kept going right on past the left wing extremist protesters.

So Ohio doesn't seem to be making cars that people want to buy. Prediction: We STILL won't be making fuel-efficient cars. So don't start making plans on working for the auto industry in Ohio, folks.

coigate,
I bought an oil drainage pan from advanced auto and it had the made in america sticker on it!

but where the the sticker made?

I need a new Flag for Memorial Day. When I went to purchase one I noticed that it had a "Made in China" sticker affixed to it.

Needless to say I passed on that one.

KrazyKat, I didn't even think about the sticker. LOL.

Think the UAW ever protested the big three for buying foreign parts?

They may have, but it's sure not an on-going battle that gets a lot of press, and I sure as hell havent ever seen a bumper sticker telling the big three to buy american made parts.
