Local news report this morning says Chinese auto manufacturer Nanjing Auto which recently bought Britishesh :dunno: MG-Rover is going to be building the new MG in Ardmore Ok along with two other plants overseas. Plant construction should begin early next year and will employ 500 people to start.

Good to see China couldn't come up with their own idea on a car and had to basically buy one. Next, you'll have the China Pony with a Mustang Front and Camaro rear. :eek:

Ya, but they have a killer dragstrip. I haven't been by there for at least 10 years. Is it still there? The last time I drove by there my father was riding shot gun and I said thats where Lee Shepard killed himself. Still have a hard time believing he was testing a car wearing no helmet or seat belt.

The sad part about this Chineese sports car is that it will probally be better built than the original. I hope theres enough room to stuff a Yankee V-8 in between the fenders. :usa:

Well maybe not Ed Zachery like Dumbar. The high temp in Ardmore was 106 degrees today and the heat index was 115. :eek!: Sure glad I live 90 miles north of there. :headbang:

Well, I guess now three things come from Oklahoma.
Here's a different joke. Actually you can tie it in with the imigration debate,Steve Wood, Zap and China building cars if you have a warped sense of humor like the Briteesh.

What do you call Texans?



Mexicans on their way to Oklahoma!



See? I'm being PC while being an equal opportinity offender. :cheers:
