Fiesta Movement agents are putting their mark on the online world, and their videos for July missions are continuing to showcase their talent – and the Fiesta. July missions had agents immersing themselves in the world of style and design, and pushing the limits of creativity. Whether agents were getting a tattoo, using Fiesta as an inspiration for a makeover or outfitting their Fiesta in one-of-a-kind car wrap, these trendsetters showed off their passion for design – and fun. They’ve also generated more than 15.5 million consumer impressions through various social media platforms, including YouTube, Twitter and Flickr, demonstrating just how much reach these agents have.

Four months into their adventures, the Fiesta agents’ August missions are taking them in a new direction – as volunteers. Whether spending time at the Smithsonian Institute, delivering food for Meals on Wheels or helping build playgrounds for KaBOOM, agents are pitching in to give back. To jump-start enthusiasm for the missions, actor Mario Lopez took a Ford Fiesta filled with sports equipment to a Boys and Girls Club in the Los Angeles area.

The Ford Fiesta debut at the X Games was memorable as Kenny Brack and Tanner Foust powered their production based Fiesta rally cars to the top of the speed charts in seeding for Sunday’s X Games 15 Rally Competition. Ten-time X Games medalist Brian Deegan driving in his first X Games rally event was fourth overall, a mere six-hundredths of a second behind his arch rival and 2008 X Games rally champion Travis Pastrana, who was third.

Ford profits increasing

The Detroit Three are in much better financial shape than three years ago. General Motors and Ford are now profitable, and Chrysler appears poised to begin making real money soon. That success has lead to plans to spend billions of dollars on North American plants, but Automotive News reports that our friends to the north aren’t seeing much of the money.

Ford, GM and Chrysler are reportedly planning to spend at least $13.3 billion in the U.S. in the next four years, but investment in Canadian plants is dropping fast. In fact, there was only $1.2 billion in plant spending in Canada in 2011, down 62 percent versus the average of the last decade. A big reason for the decline in spending is the strength of the Canadian dollar and the relative weakness of the U.S. dollar.

Automakers are also spending more in the U.S. thanks to a new labor agreement with the United Auto Workers, which helps level labor costs compared to foreign rivals. Meanwhile, automakers and the Canadian Auto Workers are now working on a new contract for 2012. The CAW has so far fought many of the cost cuts that the UAW has accepted.

To make matters worse for our northern neighbors, Ford closed the St. Thomas plant that once built the Lincoln Town Car and Ford Crown Victoria, and GM ha reportedly announced plans to build two models in the U.S. that are currently being built in Canada.

We’re guessing that while the Canada announcements have been few and far between in the past year or two, that could change if the CAW makes a few concessions at the bargaining table in 2012. If not, auto jobs in Canada could be in real trouble.
