i agree especially with 3 cylinder engines...YIKES but the introduction of cheap alternative delt the US automotive makers a big blow over the years and with companies like kia and now these chinese cars could equally do the same to the japanese market should they orgainze in the manner that the japnaese did

on the other side if the cars dont do well it could hurt the local economies where the new dealerships are located...then theres the issue of the Chinese, US, and Tawainese problem, etc., etc...i am skeptical of the business venture but at the same time intriugued...imagine if you bought honda or toyota stock in the 70's...

needs to be $700.

The Chinese have 1 billion people. That means, in a factory, the workers are paid nothing. Either you work for $.01 a year, or we'll find someone who will.

who needs a machine factory when you could have 1,000,000 people working for $.01 a year assembling cars
