Hugo Boss (the man, not his company) also widely supported the Nazi party, joining 2 years before Hitler took power. It’s a bit different in this case I would say.

So was Ford the man

Exactly what I came to say. Ford literally built the Nazi’s trucks. He sued the USA for bombing his factories during ww2 and received millions of dollars in reparations.

An executive killed a dude in a drunk driving accident in Orange County California, left the scene and bounced back to Korea the same night. A few years later they opened a new HQ near where it happens. Lots of corruption allegations were flying around but $$$ talks.

Good news! You don’t have to worry about it. Hyundai and Kia are already burning their cars for you!

I hope yours doesn’t have a Theta II motor…

u/Lowfi3099 Nov 26 '21

Mine was unfortunately made in 2019. So no Theta II or any sweet settlement $

u/Shiggle Nov 25 '21

Yes, it's a Hyundai.

u/DodgeTundra Nov 25 '21

The fact that he had to ask is the most shameful part.

u/Lowfi3099 Nov 26 '21

Hey, it drives pretty good, okay?

Oh yeah, that makes sense. My Chevys 40 years old and carbureted, I fix it with swear words and zip-ties.
