According to All About Honda, all Civic production will be migrating to East Liberty, Ohio. Which lends more credence to the idea that there will no longer be a difference between US and Euro/JDM Civics..

Good point, I thought there was the possibility that we might get to see a version of the civic more tailored to the U.S. market that we have yet to see, but with the same powertrain and styling as the Euro version. Wouldn't be surprised to get what the Euro market is getting and wouldn't mind it.

It would make sense to center civic production in the US since most civics end up sold here. I can imagine a global platform and multiple versions of the civic (coupe, sedan, hatchback, fastback, etc)

If all the global models will be produced here in the US, maybe I can sneak a hatchback out the factory back door when no one's looking. Would love to have a new Si manual hatch on US soil.

It would make sense to build them in Canada too though. It is really close to the US and the Canadian dollar is less than the US dollar which means that your money can go further in Canada then it can in the US.

Phew! A year or two ago the Canadian dollar was slightly stronger than the United States dollar by a dime or so. Now $1CAN = $0.88USD.

I'll join in on that hit squad :D
We can always try hijacking their trucks, going about it that way at least we can get a few that are ready to go, all it would require is us to do a PDI on them :D

Members on FitFreak just noticed how the price has gone up by like $35 that Honda has to pay for protection to get the cars out of the plants in Mexico and north of the border without getting their shipments jacked.

Sounds good to me. I've always wanted to try this...

That scene in F & F is pretty epic, but the chances of that happening in real life are slim to none. Besides couldn't the truck just brake and basically total whatever car was underneath it.

But if the tractor stopped it would be a sitting duck. Gotta keep moving. Like in that one movie where the bus had to do 55+mph or the bomb would explode. And if the tractor driver slammed on the brakes it would probably cause the tractor/trailer combo to wreck too unless it was going in a perfectly straight line.

Well, at least from the recent comments it's easy to tell who actually watched the movie because having the truck brake and be an issue for the vehicle underneath clearly wasn't a issue ;)
