(PHILLYBURBS) — When Ray Minger drives into a parking lot, he finds himself counting the number of American-made vehicles. There are fewer than there used to be.

“It’s hard to see any American cars anymore,” said the classic car buff and retired history teacher from Lower Southampton. “It’s a shame.”

Minger said he’d also like to look for other U.S.-made goods, but doesn’t believe they’re out there.

“I was raised in Philadelphia,” he said. “Many a time, I used to go into Frankford to go to a movie. My wife used to go shopping down there. Now, those mills and so forth that used to be in that area no longer are around. Which means no jobs for the people down there.”
