As for the US vs Jap vehicles - the Ford F-series truck is the world's largest selling vehicle in total units since the early or mid 80's. The GM crowd will say "if you added the Chev and GM together then GM would be the world's largest selling..." Hmmmmm. Look at the top 10 selling vehicles in the US - 4 or 5 are made by Ford. The world competition started after WWII, while we started in the 1880s. They were able to use the best available technology at the time, while the US tax system didn't provide incentives for research & development. Plus those other countries don't have the give-away social programs our manufacturers have to support, or at least not as many.
Buy American - the job you save may be your own!
