34 male, born in Taiwan, grew up and living in US (CA). 100% Chinese ethnicity. A big car nut. My favorite (and most troublesome) car was the Porsche 944 Turbo. For years yearned for a Chinese made car; will be the first in line to buy one. If I have the knowhow, will even open a dealer (got the money but no knowledge).

I speak some English and study German and Swedish languages at school. Maybe in the future I will learn Chinese too. I've been studying Chinese cars since 2004. Never been in China but it is my dream that someday I could go there.

28 years old, Chinese American male, I consider myself a good bridge between China and the USA.

I live in California. Interested in general growth of industries in China, automobiles being one of them.

I have nothing against chinese cars, but their remind me of Korean ones, nicely styled, poorly designed. I'm interested to see how they preform in the U.S. market, and I'm even more interested in seeing Chinese stereotypes of Americans fall flat on their face in the form of marketing failures. To succeed in the American market, mainland chinese will have to learn about the American people in ways they probably don't realize yet, and I expect they will discover a lot of their pre-concieved notions about the United States are false.

interest
interest in chinese car market, and investing in chinese car company stock

believe
what i believe is chinese car will take over the low-end of car market, n car parts market.
And this movement will push GM, Ford, and other big firm to shift the low-end car out-source to Chinese manufacturer to build the car.
that's just like how the Dell build their computers, GM OR FORD do the R&D, and Chinese build the car for them. GM earn the major of the profit.
for sure, Chinese car manufacture will try to move from low to high....
but it is base on how good they can go....

Stock
invested in CBA(1114.hk)
i believe it is a great value company, and the most sucessful chinese car company so far

I'm not royal to any particular brand. And I love to see more choices of cars within my budget. And it seems like those more choices will come from China:cool:

And the same with American companies who are trying to sell in China.

America has far more stereotypes of Chinese, than the other way around. Most Chinese have a better understanding of America than Americans do of China.
