BOCHUM, GERMANY - FILE: A sign that reads 'Please Stop Engine' is seen near the German car maker Adam Opel AG plant on February 23, 2009 in Bochum, Germany. Newspaper "Wall Street Journal" announced today that Opel, owned by General Motors, allegedly is faced to close his Bochum plant entirely. The plant began operation in 1962 and was part of the so-called German "economic miracle" that brought West Germany, ravaged from World War II, up to the status of a world economic power. The Works Council of Opel disclaimed this announcement. (Photo by Andreas Rentz/Getty Images) less
