Thank Toyota and their failure for that. The same sheeple who only purchase Toyota because it is the "best" brand jumped to Ford because it was the only domestic brand to not need a bailout.

I absolutely love how Ford is showing the world how to weather the recession. No other automaker on the planet is doing as well as they are without gov't money.

That's because Ford got **** lucky and managed to secure enough private loans before the credit crisis started.
