Greg Locock is very well informed about Portuguese automobile manufacture and has correctly answered to rmw.

Unhappily not all Portuguese automotive industry goes well.

Opel GM in Azambuja is going to stop Combo production. Azambuja plant will be closed and Combo production will be transferred to Spain.

0707,

A little off the subject, but have you seen "Mystic Pizza," an older movie about the fishermen community from Portugal in Mystic, CT? I enjoyed it.

I didn’t see “Mystic Pizza” but your posting challange my curiosity and after a searching I discover this resume about the picture.

“A sweet and sassy comedy about the bonds of sisterhood, Mystic Pizza offers the opportunity to see some solid young actresses early in their careers. Three sisters of blue-collar Portuguese descent work in a pizzeria in the coastal town of Mystic, Connecticut. Each has her own unique romantic entanglements. One is the fast girl in town (Julia Roberts) who falls for a rich kid but wonders if she'll ever be accepted; one is the lifelong local girl (Lili Taylor) in love with her fisherman boyfriend (Vincent D'Onofrio) but scared of what marriage will do to their sex lives; and the youngest sister (Annabeth Gish) dreams of going to Yale but during a summer of babysitting has an affair with a married man. Through it all each sister depends on the others regardless of the complications. It's the alluring charm of the three disparate leads that makes Mystic Pizza the delightful experience it is. --Robert Lane, Amazon.com”

Cheers
