NUMMI

Cars & Comrades published on

Sorry we're a couple days late. This week we're talking about the NUMMI joint venture between Toyota and General Motors (1:16:00), and how it relates to supply lines, the UAW, toilet paper, Tesla, and "the worst workforce in the automobile industry in the United States." But first we talk about our project cars, the IATSI strike, Amazon, and Lordstown Motors' latest struggles.
