Default California auto manufacturing plants?

Hey guys,

I'm currently doing some research, and haven't found any great resources so far.

Where are the operational auto manufacturing plants in California, and who owns them?

Thanks!

Ok .. so other than Tesla (in Fremont), and TABC (Toyota Subsiduary), is there anything else actually operating? I'd really appreciate some local insight.

Thanks guys!

There are alot of design studios in Southern California. Lots of aftermarket performance parts are made, but as for whole cars, I don't know.

Buildings standing.
Ford Richmond closed in the '70s, building is still in use dunno by who though, not automotive.
Ford San Jose plant is now 'The Great Mall'
GM Fremont plant became NUMMI, is now Tesla.

Buildings razed.
GM Van Nuys was closed after the last 3rd Gen F bodies,1992, were built. I think GM still has a testing grounds there, but the building is gone.
GM South Gate was closed early '80s. Building gone, now a school on site.
Ford L.A., closed in early '80s, Northrop bought it, building demo'd in ~2000.
Chevrolet, Oakland, plant in the 1920's buildings gone, now Eastmont Mall.

We ain't got **** no mo'.
