    I don’t believe the UAW will have much to say about GM, Ford or Chrysler selling cars to foreign entities, they have no representation on the board of directors.
    Pretty much everyone in the automobile industry knows that the Koreans will not buy anything that is not made in Korea, that is why 99% of all cars in Korea are Korean. Only the US will allow their industries to be decimated by foreign competition, hell, we even helped the Korean auto industry set up the dealer network and logistics, thus saving them at least 15 years.
    The Koreans do not buy Japanese cars or products, the Japanes do not buy Chines products, that is why Walmart can’t make a go of it in Japan and the Chinese will only buy the GM Buicks until they have their own models in the pipeline.

    I will not do business with car dealerships that sell domestic and foreign cars, I will not do business with people that drive foreign trucks or cars and I try very much to buy American.
