This was a fairly easy one to come up with. For as much change and contraction the American auto industry has gone through since the salad days (post-World War II to the 1970s), Michigan is still very much intertwined. I myself — after having gone most of my working career with only tangential work in the auto industry — am now employed by an auto supplier. My brother who lives in Michigan is an auto executive. And I have three Michigan brother-in-laws and a niece who are in the biz. It is generally a happy thing when folks are buying cars; it’s unnerving when they don’t. So if you’re still stuck for what to get that special someone this holiday season, remember that a new automobile always makes a thoughtful gift. Michigan would very much appreciate it!

    Your soon-to-be 16 year old nephew is in firm agreement that cars make wonderful gifts!
