Once Manley brought the Commie Carrillo in, back in the day, the die was cast. We all have two choices, sell it, or go out of business.It is nice to see a race to the bottom.....not really.
100%Back in the day, before all the manufacturing went off shore, did only the rich have hot rods? Nope. If manufacturing had stayed in the USA, you still would not see only the rich with hot rods. There would be a much larger middle class and a much smaller lower class. I would rather have that scenario than the current one.
No, of course not. The rich had good parts and the res of us had stock crap that we modified. You are clueless.Back in the day, before all the manufacturing went off shore, did only the rich have hot rods? Nope.

Sorry man, but this is factually incorrect. The Globalist sold this country out. You are 30 years late.No, of course not. The rich had good parts and the res of us had stock crap that we modified. You are clueless.
If you want to run a Callies MagnumXL, go ahead. If you want to run a Scat go ahead. Comes down to this. The first American penny was stamped with the words "Mind your business".
Good advice then, good advice now.
Oh, and "all the manufacturing" hasn't moved offshore. Americans manufacture 75% of what they consume. Walmart sells 77% American products........but Mrs Kravitz is still iin the window ....... making judgements based on erroneous "knowledge."
Read Adam Smith's "An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations " and try again.
So there isn’t an agenda of sending manufacturing overseas to China that’s been happening for decades which just so happened to collapse the middle classSorry man, but you don't know what you're talking about.
A lot of that is caused by....overly enthusiastic....regulations, as well as idiotic taxation. The medical device tax is a perfect example.This thread got off track a bit. Despite my bitter protestations, I was instructed to train Asian engineers and ship technology to Asia starting in the late 1980's. Large corporations will find the least expensive way to do things to be competitive, and they certainly aren't loyal to the US. I was told by my American (not Asian) boss in my last job (multi-billion dollar American corporation) to "learn Cantonese" if I wanted to succeed going forward. I wanted to shiv them.
First we shut the factories down, then the engineering operations followed. While I currently manufacture goods in the US, only the labor, overhead and some of the manufacturing equipment is US sourced. Many types of fabricated metal parts are not even source-able in the US, but if they are they usually cost ~10x as much, and we'd have had to shut down the factory years ago since we're competing with 100% Asian competition. I used to lay blame for what was happening back in the 80's, but that's become passe now, we're well beyond where it makes sense to do that now. Watching aggressive managers back then who pushed offshoring to get a promotion made me think they deserved capital punishment at the time, but most of them are retired now. The only way this ends is when we reach the equilibrium point where wages + shipping costs + materials cost + availability of quality labor justify moving manufacturing back here. It's happened in some industries, but it's a slow process.
No, there is no "agenda", outside of the conspiracy theorists weird little world. Just millions of individual decision, based on the conditions at hand.So there isn’t an agenda of sending manufacturing overseas to China that’s been happening for decades which just so happened to collapse the middle class
That’s very nice to know that’s not at all happening and everything is 100% ok.
If you're referring to the AFR head, you can get the flow numbers here: 185cc SBF Enforcer Cylinder HeadDoes anyone have cfm numbers on the flow of manufacturing to China???
