That's not really true anymore. A lot of American cars are getting made in Mexico. My Subaru was made in Indiana... You might want to look more closely at where the car was made and not where the company is headquartered. Granted the money is going to go towards the Japanese GDP but it gave an American worker a job assembling the car.

Saab still makes airplanes. I however doubt they ever made Them for The axis powers. But I might be wrong.

Both are solid automobile companies that put out a good product.

Are these the only current Japanese companies that were involved in WWII?


So? Any industry in a country at war will participate.

It's likely they are pressed into service.

Imagine if Ford or others tried to keep making cars. No materials for them.

Their choices were to produce what the government wanted or likely perish.

Unlikely to be different in Japan or Germany.

I took the AB brewery tour in St Louis again recently. I was amazed at what AB produced during prohibition. The point is companies will adapt to the economic realities around them.

We don't need to look elsewhere. Henry Ford was a tyrant in his own ways, and didn't see anything wrong with it.


So is our current "president" and he doesn't seem to see anything wrong with it either.


I'm surprised the Mods didn't jump on it. Clearly political. I guess partisanship?

I was half expecting something relevant from this century and pertaining to cars we drive today.

....this thread is a colossal waste of time and needs to be either deleted or locked.
