Geely may take up residency in lion's den

Chinese automaker Geely is checking out Detroit for its future North American home. The automaker currently runs its North American business out of Salt Lake City, Utah, hometown of former California lieutenant governor and Geely champion in the U.S., John Harmer. Harmer says the reasoning behind the move is because Salt Lake City isn't exactly an automotive hotspot, and as such, SoCal and Memphis are also in the running for the automaker's new U.S. home. Detroit seems to be his first pick, however, so GM, Chrysler and Ford may be getting a neighbor from the East.
