Chrysler's "Driving America" logo = Obama logo
Cartype.com ^ | March 22, 2012 | DTogo

Briefly noticed a small "Driving America" logo in the upper right hand corner of my TV last night during a Chrysler ad and shook my head in dismay.

The ways this country has dissolved in the past few years, I don’t know why anybody would try a patriotic theme in an advertisement. I haven’t heard a patriotic sentiment out of an average American in years, and I don’t think the “Michele Obama types” are now proud of this country.

If Chrysler planning to ‘Dixie Chick’ their brand... they should plan on yet another logo change - a dollar sign inside a circle with a slash.

So an Italian-owned car company that builds many of its top line models such as the 300, Charger, and Challenger in Canada is “Driving America”.

Anyone else find it odd that an Italian car company is using Red White and Blue in their logo instead of the traditional Green White and Red?

There isn’t a lick of sense among this bunch, is there?

But then, if one knew something would be received warmly by half the country, one might be inclined to forget it infuriates the other half.

The new Dart is built in the United States. They are hiring over 1,000 people for the plant.

Der Volkswagon! (the people’s car)

A National Socialist ‘promise’ was a car for every German. The government actually withheld the worker’s funds prior to delivery (and used the funds to finance the war effort) with the idea that you would ‘own’ the car you received.

That was my first thought when I saw it as well . Capt America but Capt. America is a cartoon character & is pro freedom not a totalitarian dictator wannabe like the current junta.

The TRUTH is that what was once Chrysler is an ITALIAN Company FIAT. Owned by and directed by Italians, not Americans.

Also funded by American taxpayer dollars to support a corrupt Union and adminstration.

F what is left of the UAW, and F Barack Hussien Obama.

It's a very nice adaptation of the Italian design, too. It'll be interesting to see if it's well-built. I agree, too, that we cannot forever impugn circles with red, white, and blue in them.

Yes, they still build some cars in the US. So does Honda, Toyota, and Nissan, and the average US parts content may turn out to be higher in the latter.

And since Chrysler is owned by Fiat, I don't see the difference, from a "Buy American" point of view, between buying one or another.

You guys really need to stop drinking the kool-aid.

Too bad you couldn't discuss this without hurling insults. Maybe you need to get off of the Hopium.i

That's OK. Mopar stopped existing for me when they stopped the '68-70 Charger-Roadrunner and '70-74 Challenger and Barracuda.

On top of that, the K car became their savior, wth? I had one as a rental while my car was repaired due to an accident. By 3,500 miles ( I got the car new), the CV joints were already clunking. What a pile of junk and its looks, uninspired.

I don't care that they brought back the Hemi. What do race cars run? Four valved pentroof combustion chambers.

The world engine seems to be good. I know and talk to many Mopar mechanics that say they don’t see issues with them. That engine is a shared design among Chrysler and others I can’t recall right now. The Dart hits 40pmg according to numbers put out by the company. An official rating is not out yet. Waiting patiently for the reviews and I’m hoping my Concorde holds out until the second year run (2014). I’ll be getting an R/T if the mpg is good. The design is actually based on an Alpha Romeo, has the charger rear lights and the dodge front.

The LH cars were good, they came after those horrible daze. I had a 1994 LHS that hit 220,000 and would have gone more. A 2007 that hit 190,000 before I bought my 2004 Concorde. Great cars, the 3.5l V6 is a killer engine and by 1996 they fixed the tranny issues.

When stationed in Europe, I owned a Fiat. It was what I could pay for but it surely was a chincy, cheap built, poorly designed jitney. Back in the early 60s, Fiat was imported into the U.S.; Fail. It will fail again too.
