There is a story in the LA Times about the Toyota car company setting up a plant in or near Tupelo Mississippi........Elvis's birthplace.

Former Mayor of Tupelo Larry K Otis pursued such a venture a few years ago.

That and a statue of Elvis :-)

Larry drives a Jaguar. He told us of his interest in the new Car Museum in Tupelo 2003.........a topic Elvis would have appreciated.

I also read that article Maurice. More good publicity. Tupelo is certainly hitting the headlines more and more these days.

Yes Brian. Tupelo is making great strides and it's Elvis related tourism is bound to reap rewards from such publicity and the economic growth of the city.

The Elvis Festival in June should be quite an occasion. (y)
