There was a manufacturing plant in SA. The local laws were cars had to have a certain amount of local content and it was mainly a weight factor that was used for calculation. So heavy, expensive, items like motors, gearboxes, axles were imported but there was definately local tooling and assembly. Info I heard (cannot remember how accurate it is) was it was the only Alfa manufacturer outside Italy. I stand corrected on that point.

And on the 7th day, he made Alfas....

There are only 10 types of people.... those who understand binary, and those who don't.
