Are they really American?

Is Acura really american? Or is it like Nissan and Infinity? is Infinity really American? What about Scion? is it American also?

You tell me....

I have a slight feeling that Infinity is American..but then if you look at the Skyline 350GT 4dr and 2dr they look like the G35 2&4 dr.....

Same thing goes for the Infinity QX45...It looks like the Armada...and the older QX45 looks like the Pathfinder of 2004.....:(

Therefore I dont know...but it puzzles me.

Owned by.... Japan. Profits go to : Japan
Of course, GM is owned by America and built in (U.S.+Canada+???) and stock holders from Anywhere, so it is hard to say....
Everything is global, with roots somewhere.

Any Americans own Honda stock? Then a bit of those profits go to them. It is all global. To talk about a national origin, you have to be specific. Foreign ownership? Mostly, but not wholly. American market? Mostly. You get the idea.

Try the same thing with this pair's predecessors of 1970 or so and you'll find yourself in a bit of a wrestling match. Ain't progress wonderful? Maybe yes, and maybe sometimes it's fun to wrestle."

Honda needs to gb2building bikes. Seriously. My Magna is probably the most I've been impressed with Hondurr engineering. Bike is batshiiiiiiiii- crazy.

It's gonna be funny having my Camaro and Maggie Mae (the magna) parked next to each other.
