I defy you to prove where I ever said I owned any business other than my
former fleet service business. I never said I owned a dealership, let alone
a Dodge of Ford dealership, that I ever gave the address of my home in Key
West, that I ever said domestic can do not wrong, or that Toyota did not
make good vehicles, or any of the other fantasies in your post. Every
statistical fact I post can be verified by anybody willing to do the search.
Only a fool would post their actual address on the web as do you. What will
you post next your SS number? Your are weird LOL

That may be your opinion but certainly not what we saw in my former fleet
service business. We serviced thousands of vehicles monthly in our shops
locate in six eastern states. No particular brand stands out from the
others in dependability. We serviced nearly every brand of vehicle.
Corporate fleets generally keep the vehicles they use, as tools in their
business, for five years or 300K WOF because of federal corporate tax
deprecation laws. We saw little difference among brands in terms of
longevity when the vehicles were given the proper maintenance such as we
provided. The only real difference among brands is style and the price of
accusation, insurance, maintenance and parts. Any vehicle one buys today,
domestic or foreign, well easily last to 200K or more is given decent
maintenance. As a consumer who keeps their vehicle till it dies, one should
be more concerned about the price of the car and its parts than the need for
them, since they all need to be repaired at some point. As to the chance
of your friend seeing more of particular brand, is like asking someone in
the Bronx Zoo if they see more pigeons or penguins. One must remember GM
has five times as many vehicles on the road and Ford four times as many as
any other brand. Since Toyota arrived in the US in 1958, the past few years
is the only time it has sold more than 1,000,000 vehicles annually, while GM
and Ford sold more than half of ALL of the up to 19,000,000 vehicles sold
annually in the US over the same period. Even today GM and Ford sell more
trucks alone than does Toyota, Lexus, and Scion sells cars and trucks

Just a note of warning to you folks in the GM and Ford groups, and
Mike Hunt <Beavis> "Heh heh heh, he said My Cunt!" </Beavis> is our
resident nym-shifting Troll. Take everything he says with a pound or
two of salt, a pinch simply won't do.
In his eyes the Domestic auto makers can do no wrong, but for some
unknown reason he hangs out in a Toyota newsgroup haranguing all the
Toyota owners... And every single time he tries to trot out "facts"
about his background or experience in the car biz, or "facts" about
how wonderful domestic cars are, they have been systematically proven
to be bigger whoppers than Jon Lovitz and his "liar" sketches on
Saturday Night Live.
"Yeah, yeah, that's it! That's the ticket..."
He's owned "The Biggest Ford Dealer in the state... or "The Biggest
Dodge Dealer in..." but he won't give us any real names to verify who
he really is. And even the people here who are in the car business in
that neck of the country have never heard of him, or anyone with an
experience set approaching the one he's pawned off on us.
His "facts" shift wildly between each telling because he forgot
which lies he told last month. I've given up trying to keep up with
them all myself, but someone here was keeping a list.
He even tries to invent BS for his multiple screen names, like he's
using one of "the many computers in his palatial mansion", or "one of
the employee computers" at his sprawling office complex after hours,
all set up with different user names, or he's "posting from his
Vacation House in Key West Florida", but everything comes from the
same Windows home computer running Outlook Express, and a Penn
Teledata ptd.net dial-up modem pool connection in Pennsylvania.
One time he teased us with a street address (the hundreds block
only) for his alleged vacation house in Key West, but someone checked
- the street existed, but if there was a house at that hundred-block
address it would be about 1/2 mile offshore...
