The Detroit Free Press had a great article today. http://www.freep.com They talk about how Michiganders still drive American Autos. “45% of households owning a vehicle made by General Motors Corp., 39% a Ford Motor Co. vehicle, and 22% a Chrysler Group car or truck. The poll showed only 15% of Michigan households own a vehicle made by a foreign automaker.”
Its great to see hard numbers that show Americans, driving American vehicles. Michigan is doing a great job supporting the American Autos! I have a feeling though that the overall numbers for the U.S. would not be this high. I lived 4 years in Richmond VA. Virginians drive foreign autos. I spent a few weekends in Washington DC, our nations capital and saw the Foreign Autos out numbered American owned Auto there as well. I even saw Jesse “the Body” Ventura exit from a Mercedes to interview just outside the White House.
