Haha.

Would you trade the round headlights for square lights and a diesel?

Jeep sold 9/18/2015.

I was thinking the same thing, but Fiat also said if they moved the Wrangler to another facility, the Toledo plant would still be in full production and no jobs would be lost.

I don't know why anyone would want to screw around with aluminum body panels. Hemp resin body panels would be lighter than steel and also take less trail damage than either steel or aluminum. Kentucky law already allows industrial hemp production and Indiana just passed a similar law this year. These two states could provide Ohio with all the hemp they would need. Henry Ford was well on his way to building hemp body panel cars in the 1940ís before Harry Anslinger and his cronies convinced people that hemp was evil.

They always say crap like this, and then the next day people show up for work and the gate's locked with a note: "Moved to Mexico, wish you were here."
