What the trade is saying---Auto news

The other thread got so off topic that it is now in the DZ.

What the trade is saying---Auto news (#1)
https://sprinter-source.com/forum/sh...ad.php?t=66652

I realize that the subject is political in nature, but please let's keep on topic and civil with this thread. I have faith that it can be done with a bit of cooperation.

It means in short that parts are going to be much more expensive and hard to get! This will really determine the end value of what you drive and what it will cost to get it fixed.....If you can find the parts.

Some of this is a bit sobering.

“For those on the left and right who were certain that Donald Trump’s presidency meant the end of global free trade . . . think again,” Stephen Moore writes in The Washington Times. The mostly tariff-free North American trade zone resulting from the new deal with Mexico and Canada “was Ronald Reagan’s vision nearly four decades ago — and that legacy will now live on for hopefully many years to come.”

My thought was that keeping two concurrent threads open would be counterproductive. Anybody interested in the earlier discussions/information can refer to the original, now DZ thread. From there use Quote, then copy and paste to bring pertinent information to this new thread.

If anyone wants to suggest reasons that the DZ thread should be unlocked, start a thread in the DZ with your logic. That information can then be considered.

Be aware. Just starting an unlock thread will not of itself be enough to get the thread status changed.

Back to topic.

P.S. - Technically the thread was moved and then locked. I don't believe that the content and what it had morphed into needed to be left in the Competition Section.
