Nothing is more American than the story of Henry Ford tinkering in a Detroit garage and then starting one of the most successful and innovative car brands in history.
The Ford Mustang may be the most iconic American car ever produced.
Chevrolet branded itself as the “Heartbeat of America.”
But the most American automotive brand, as of next year, just might be Hyundai. According to CNN Money, in 2011 80 percent of the vehicles that Hyundai sells in the United States will be built here as well, giving the automaker top spot in the “Made in the U.S.A.” rankings.
Does that really make the Korean company any more American than its Detroit counterparts? Not really.
