Dear Guangzhou Automobile Group,
Hey guys. It's me, P. George. We met yesterday when my Jalopnik colleagues and I stopped by your display at the Detroit Auto Show to poke around under the hood of your Trumpchi sedan. (I was the handsome one, if that helps you remember.)
Let me start by saying that I like you guys a lot, and I'm fascinated by the Chinese auto industry as a whole. I think you're scrappy, and it's incredibly interesting to watch you grow from the ground up with the goal of one day competing on the world stage. That's pretty admirable. You showcased some truly interesting cars at the Detroit show, even if they aren't onsale in the U.S. (Yet, anyway.)
Having said all that, I'd like to help you out, like we did yesterday when we checked out the Trumpchi and informed a few of your extremely friendly company reps that "sackbut" is almost certainly not the word you wanted to display on its windshield. We weren't trying to make fun of you or be mean — many manufacturers have issues when entering a market that doesn't speak their native tongue.
