My very own Fiat factory

HA!

Today they announced that Fiat of all manufactures is seriously looking to build it's North American plant here in my City,,OMG

This would be HUGE for this place, Not only are we starting to explode with OIL, Uranium and Potash now Fiats....

I guess Fiat owns some large agricultural machine co that just happens to be built here Case tractors I think, anyhoo they will convert one of those Plants to build Fiats for North America.

I would give up the Bar Life to work for my Mother Country...

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmaybe not.....

Hahaha!! That would be a tough decision. Congrats on the new Fiat factory though!

Everytime industry tries to move into my area there is always some group or another group trying to stop it. Then the State steps in to make sure the taxes are high enough that they want to move their factory to China. I guess we don't need the jobs and the revenue here. I don't understand it. When the license for our nuclear power plant came up for renewal the greenies fought it and the nuclear power plant shut down. Everybody's taxes in that town doubled because all the cool shit the town bought, like state of the art schools, fire and police departments and all the related equipment, came from the tax revenue of the power plant. Now all our power comes from aging coal plants and also nuclear power plants in Canada. .

YEAH !!!! GOOOO FIAT !!! Please bring some much needed culture and refinement to those barbarians of the west !!

The New Fiat 500 in north-america would be GREAT !!! It would show the regular american that you CAN get awesome fuel mileage from a car that looks spectacular, without it being 7,5 tons of huge americanism

And it's good for labour

As a barbarian I resent that remark. As for the 7.5 tons of huge americanism, that helps with the handling, we have a long standing Detroit tradition of "Road huggin' weight".
