Out west, I have always equated auto manufacturing to solely being in Detroit. Over the past couple years I have noticed that there are other cities that have plants too.
All of my Dad's Ford Trucks have been made primarily in Minneapolis, while my old Explorer (and my Dad's current one) were made in St. Louis. I also remember my Dad and Grandfather talking about the Studebaker plant in South Bend, IN. (I think)
I know some Japanese car makers have plants in the south, as well as Saturn's Tennessee plant.
There are also many parts plants too, around the midwest (I assume).
Obviously heavy manufacturing never took off well in Denver, and I don;t know of any auto plants out west.
Is there a website, or some info on what cities have major assembly plants, and what makes/models are built there? Any info would be great!
