If a dude owns a Tundra, he prolly has no nads! 9,366,000 Toyotas sold last year? That's 9,366,000 too many. atriot:
My thoughts exactly. I own a toyota as a beater, but would never buy a foreign car new.yea and alot of them are americans..
What ticks me off to no end is..I love when people have American flags plastered on thier windows, bumpers, plate holders, antenas, whatever..AND bumper stickers of comments about this is the U.S. AND (pick your patriotic phrase) and put it on the bumper...AND or magnets of "support this or that"
AND THEY ARE DRIVING A TOYOTA!!!
HELLOOOOO..You have an AMERIAN FLAG...once again AMERICAN FLAG on a foriegn car..how stupid do we look??? Really..One lady around here is driving a Honda with "Buy American" sticker on her bumper for a supply company..but WTF?? Buy American?? When you yourself can not buy one of the most expensive things we as Americans buy every year??
Think about it...What is that message sending? An American flag on a car thats company is not from here? To me that is discracing the flag and what it means. Sure this is a free land and the freedom to choose. And Toyota is here. But why should Toyota not only compete but actually defeat companies that are established and help make this country great? Why? And to show the support of the dismantling of the American dream you put an American flag on the imported competition?
Basically your saying they won...your flag is on the invaders products..
cars are the last thing that really defines who we are and choose what company we can buy them from..not like smaller products that we have no choice if they are made in china or what not and have to go with it..we can decide to buy a car from the U.S. and a company founded in this country. That is pride.. that is patriotic..not buying a toyota and slapping a flag on it to show your support for the U.S.. That is humiliating to me..
This means something people...atriot:atriot:atriot:
WOW, I thought I was the only guy on the planet that was as pissed as you about the Japanese auto industry and their ongoing attempt to lull the passive Americans to buy their "Apple Pie" advertising. This is how they get back at the USA for dropping a couple of atom bombs on their postage-stamp sized patch of dirt. Sorry, but I will always despise Japan and their under-handed attempt to destroy the US auto industry. However, with morons putting American flags on their Toyotas, its not to hard for Japan to win this battle. People need to wake the hell up. BTW, who started the war in the Pacific on December 7, 1941 anyway? Rot in hell, Japan.atriot:Something more for you to think about..
Toyota's latest motto.."Moving Forward"
What does this mean? Sure it could just mean as simple of inovation and making good cars..sure..
Moving forward is also a word used in victory...a military term a stradegy term..Moving forward from winning a battle..on to the next..
Toyota has the best selling car in the U.S. ..Moving forward..
Toyota has sucsessfully started a new brand in the U.S.,Scion..Moving forward..
Toyota has new plants being built in the U.S. while GM Ford and Chrysler all are closing plants..Moving Forward..
Toyota has passed Ford as the number 2 seller of cars and trucks in the U.S. THE U.S...in our own country..number two now..Moving Forward..
Toyota was the largest car company in the world last year..they beat out GM...Moving Forward..
Now tell me you think "Moving Forward" has the same meaning? Or really is it something more??? Ask yourself..how dumb can we see that thier battle cry is being pumped all over the airwaves and TV and we are oblivious to it. In fact we as Americans are embracing it.. How sad is that..
Now on to Honda..the new commercials they are doing with "hold on tight to your dreams"The cars passing by showing on the walls of the tunnel or the buildings mostly old 60's and 70's videos of what the U.S. was like..How great times were and basically Americana in the 60's with the biggest icons of that era..the Beatles..The bands from Britan but the songs very close to the hearts of the U.S. poluation and what it meant back then..
Now why would Honda put those images and song into a commercial? The visions they are using to promote the new Hondas are exactly that..memories or "dreams" IMO another crack at our stupidity and showing it to our faces..How good was the U.S. back then? Very good where was Honda? Not so much the driveway champ it is now was it? Back then we survived on our economy and our cars..now it is a dream as Honda is the car for Americans it along with Toyota are the ones that move forward with thier dreams. And we suck it up cus we think these companies are as American as apple pie..
Honda is basically taunting us with the visions that will never happen again because of what we are doing..
Think about it and look past the marketing and see the picture..Toyota and Honda have our auto industry by the balls and they know it..heck they even show us in plain as day commercials..yet we have no idea..anyone ever see John Carpenters They Live?? Think about it..
