Toyota Wins @ Daytona; Chevy SS Pace cars catches fires..
Not a good day for GM. And for those who like to say those races are meaningless, than ask why manufacturers dump in hoarders of capital into them?! Continued congratulations to all of those who loaded up on TM with me Under $60!
Now it it's time to watch HMC and VW make some moves upward. But long term I'm weighted in TM when it comes to auto manufacturers. Toyota is on track to trend the $200 mark in their OTC shares. I'm guessing there is a lot of R&D going into the Tundra and is why modest changes were only applied to it and others. And with the end of the FJ look for more focus on 4-Runner development to gather even more the mid size SUV realm that focus on more off-road capability. With that in mind Ford should admit defeat to Toyota and Honda and just retire the Explorer name and start from scratch like GM did when the killed off the Blazer, Tracker and Trailblazer... But Ford should avoid the mistake GM did with the Traverse and look at the success of the likes of the Pilot, Highlander and RAV4 as they have attempted with the Escape. But people still seek out Toyota and Honda for their long term reliability and value retainment. It's a tough mountain for GM and ford to climb in those segments. Thank goodness though for the full-size pickup trucks though! They save Ford and GM each and every year. And I applaud both for keeping them fresh! Rant off...
