RE: are convertibles fun?
should i spell it out?
i have never seen anyone yelling at "fung cho" in his honda civic, telling him he is wrong for driving a japanese car. likewise, i dont want any more flack for my preferred modes of transportation. im allowed to like german and american cars exclusivly. its my freaking right.
yes, i have more than 3 relatives that work in steel mills. my father, his brothers(3 of them) my uncle(fathers brother in law) and even a few cousins.
if i bought new japanese cars, i would be taking money from plenty of loved ones. my accountant aunt works at gm in detroit. i have an uncle that built fords in ohio and my sister works at the local chrysler dealership.
if there were any advantage, for me or mine, to buying a japanese car, i would, but there isnt.
i am an american of german descent. my family is in this country because of the domestic automobile, ford paid my great-grandfather enough of a wage to send his children to school, which in-turn gave my grandfather the means to provide his family with a comfortable living, giving my father(a US-Steel employee) the means to educate me and mine.
i owe my person to the american(and german) automobile and steel industries. i cannot see this as a negative thing.
is it clearer now?
