Buying a factory is not the same as buying the company! They aren't 
making Chryslers and Dodges with Mitsubishi nameplates on them, I'll 
bet.  Anyway, I'll bet that if you check, Chrysler still owns a big 
chunk of Mitsu, so it's easy to shift things back and forth. In the USA, 
both Dodge Stealths and Mitsubishi Eclipses came out of the same factory 
in Belvidere, Illinois.  Maybe they still do.
