At the risk of sounding redundant, I applaud you for your applause! I also agree with your assessment of the 206 class. I am part of a manufacturing team right here in Noblesville, IN that is in production of a 206 chassis right now. Not only is it made in America, it is almost 100% made in one shop. If you are interested in any more information, please contact me anytime.
The 206 class could be the avenue for reemergence of homegrown, American ingenuity.
