    Just read an interesting bit about a Chinese billionaire, who owns a glass manufacturing business. Apparently in October, he opened a plant, Fuyao Glass in the former GM plant where our GMT360s were built. He stated that it was more cost effective to manufacture the glass there, than in China. It now employs 2000 workers and hopes to expand to 3000. Most likely not at former automotive wages, but hopefully, a sign of better times ahead.

    Seems there is finally hope for businesses. I know a couple former small business owners that are now looking into opening something up with changes occurring.

    It's funny, we've had more Pool leads in the last month than the first half of the last couple of years. It does seem to be turning around.

    Certainly good news for once. At least they're not making dildos in the old GM plant :biggrin:

    I'd buy that plant and live in it. Have it hold my collection of miatas and 360s
