So for anyone who wants to join in on our gentlemenly wager here are the terms:
Whichever vehicle, Camry or Accord, sells the most vehicles in calendar year 2008 in the United States. Vehicles include all model types including hybrids or coupes, etc.
I will do my best to keep track of sales on a month by month basis and a CYTD basis, and I will post web links for verification.
So far we have two gamblers, but post a reply and we will add your name to the list.
Just taking a few mins from my vacation to give the wager update...I notice some of the poor bashers are still desperately thinking that showing their hatred and stupidity is the best way to ruin the reputations of GM and F. Way to go guys, its dopes like you that make people want to buy Toyotas.
November 2008 = 25,224
YTD = 411,342
November 2008 = 17,430
YTD = 350,441
For friedguy who said,
"I'm in for the Ford F-Series to beat you both, and I'll even give you a 100,000 vehicle head start"
November 2008 = 37,911
YTD = 473,933
Only one month to go...the Camry is still America's best selling car, and still beating friedguy's statement.
OK folks, here are the final numbers...
December 2008 Toyota Camry Sales = 25,275
TOTAL 2008 Toyota Camry Sales = 436,617
December 2008 Honda Accord Sales = 22,348
