Amazing thing I noticed...

I noticed something amazing while i was disassembling my 66 Caprice. I couldn't belive the amount of parts I took off that said MADE IN THE USA on them. What a wonderful country this place USED TO BE.

I here ya Brian.. I can remember when it meant something.. I can also remember the " look for the union label" commercials as well.. I think now, The only "made in the USA" people look for is $$$ so they can go buy more Chinese crap...

am no union fan, but am certainly in favor of trade barriers, tariffs, etc. targeting asian products. unfortunately pandora's box was opened years ago.
