WASHINGTON (FMLiveWire) -- President-elect Barack Obama has unveiled his plan to save the ailing US auto industry by nationalizing the auto sector and making a single car model, to be known as the "Obamawagen."
Modeled on the popular beetle-shaped Volkswagen, or "people's car," the new vehicle will feature the utility and cheapness of the original Volkswagen Passenger Cars ordered by Germany in the 1930s, designed by Porsche and built in Wolfsburg, Germany.
The two-door cars will have an air-cooled, rear mounted engine and will sell for about $2000 each, thus competing with the Tata vehicles made in India.
"Obamawagens will be made in some of the factories formerly owned by General Motors, Ford and Chrysler," said President Obama. "Imports of foreign cars will be banned."
"As our existing autoworkers are retired, our unemployed youth will be put to work building the easy-to-manufacture Obamawagens. This new workforce will buy the new cars and will also serve as a draft pool to fight in our wars to acquire the land and resources which will make America great and defend us from enemies and terrorists."
The new younger leadership of the UAW has backed the plan, since many of the excess car plants will be converted to producing tanks, other fighting vehicles and armaments.
A new corps of Obama Youth has already been established to begin training the workforce-militia under the jurisdiction of Homeland Security.
