Ok, we’ll admit, Changing Gears has not always had a friendly tone toward Austin. But, mean-spirited jokes aside, Austin does seem to come up on this site a lot more than other non-Midwest cities. We’ve even written about Austin’s hopes to build its own local auto industry.

So how about it Austin? Do you want to go steady with Detroit?
Yes or No
