Indications are Toyota and Mazda have apparently picked Alabama as the site for the company's new $1.6 billion auto plant.  The plant would be in Greenbrier, between Decatur and Huntsville.

The plant is projected to produce 300,000 vehicles a year, with half being the Toyota Corolla and the rest an unspecified Mazda model
