However, how did those massive pieces of machinery get there and by what means? Amazingly, these cars come from production plants here in the United States and even more interestingly, from nations across the worlds. Popular brands include: Mazda cars from Japan, BMW’s from Germany, Volvo’s from Sweden, and Ford’s from right here, in America.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
