I saw the Alabama plant on the way to Pensacola Fl during my vacation. Although
I didn't go inside or ask for a tour, I almost drove off the road when I saw
it. Nothing in site for miles.... then I see a sign which says either "Mercedes
road or Mercedes lane" for an exit. I thought to myself, that's funny. We're in
the middle of nowhere and they name an exit "mercedes." 

Then I look to the left, and there she was. *VERY* modernistic builiding,
mostly white. It was a startling contrast to the countryside around it. 
I hear that they are building the M-class there.
