High Speed Rail + Big Three = opportunity for Detroit?

The economic situation as I see it: On the one hand, US Automakers are teetering (save Ford, which, miraculously, appears to be doing pretty well).  On the other, there is a push to finally get High-Speed Rail going in the United States. We (collectively) want to save manufacturing jobs, right?  How about if the Federal Government helps  about-to-be-shuttered auto plants and make GM, Ford, and maybe Chrysler the makers of the soon-to-be needed high speed rail stock? Wouldn’t that help Detroit? Wouldn’t that help blue-collar workers? Wouldn’t that help the rust belt? Wouldn’t that keep the United States in the manufacturing business?  Is there a piece of logic I’m missing?  Please weigh in with your opinions. Is this a good idea? If not, what’s wrong with it?
