What is an American Car? 10/9/2012 7:12:00 AM
Highlights:
Congress is debating proposals to require that contractors on
projects financed by the economic recovery package buy
"American" steel
The Treasury has pumped billions into two of the three American
car makers with head offices in and around Detroit, hoping to avoid
a collapse of what industry and political leaders call the U.S. auto
industry
A car or truck sold by a "Detroit" auto maker such as GM, Ford or
Chrysler could be less American -- as defined by the government's
standards for "domestic content" -- than a car sold by Toyota,
Honda or Nissan -- all of which have substantial assembly and
components operations in the U.S
Ford intends to import to the U.S. market the European designs for
its small and medium-sized cars
