Yes this coming Sunday is the "Great American Race" the Daytona 500.
Have you noticed that most pundits that are discussing Toyota's renewed interest to sell full size pick ups seem to often miss a few points. Pick ups sell to folks that need a pick up for work across Canada, and in non urban of less urban areas a pick up is the equvalent of the multi purpose family vehicle.
By now we should all know that in the less urban areas of Canada, the Detroit 3 dealers have been there for generations, selling pick ups to generation of customers. That a Ford or GM dealer has a full line including Lincoln and Cadillac in less urban areas over 50% of their sales are pick ups, the same applies to Chrysler dealers.
The Canadian economy is boyant in these less urban areas which are a stronghold of Detroit 3 dealers. Generations ago when the Detroit 3 deployed dealers across Canada, they covered less urban, and remote areas, its paying off with pick ups.
A young Canadian working in the oil patch drives a 3/4 ton pick up with an 8 foot box, and its not Japanese, since only the Detroit 3 dealers have rows upon rows of pick ups available for sale.
As we mentioned last month "The Love Affair Endures".
The other day we were musing about fastback sedans, it suddenly hit us that its not a new development at all, its been around for at least a couple of generations. Agreed they are cool...
