Sold the F250 today and purchased a new 07 Tundra Double Cab. It's nice to ride in something besides a tank but I will miss the "Ole Gray Battle Tank". I will post some pics later.

Tundra 75% American made, I'm always going to like the Fords but I think every damn thing on that was made in Mexico.

But I still have my 1990 Chevy Silverado "Ole Blue"!

You call it as you see it.... I call as I see it. Ain't nothing American about something called TOYOTA .
It is what it is, regardless of where it's put together. I am just very sorry to hear it. That's all...

Roger on that! The real danger in imported stuff is everything you see "made in China" theres the real threat to our way of life. First Chinese ballistic submarine detected yesterday. But that kind of stuff keeps me employed.

Back in the Diesel club. While the Tundra may be able to tow 10800 lbs it cannot stand up to a 1300lb fifth wheel pin and passengers. I swear I'm going to sell that home on wheels one day.........................

I believe it in the early stages it was an American/Foreign topic but what is truly "made in America" any more.

Sounds like you have a problem with Toyota's or you oblivious to where 90% of the sh*t you even have is made.

I wouldn't be to sure of everything on the MC side being USA products I'll do some research though, when I am doing some maintenance on the boat tonight. As for Polaris I don't know much about that product.

Even the biggest American Icon Harley Davidson is outsourced.

Even the biggest American Icon Harley Davidson is outsourced.Not that I care...I buy/ride/drive what I want based on quality, value and desire and don't care where it's made or the entymology of the name of the product....but I assume you mean that Harley Davidson outsources a few parts from other countries.

Who doesn't?

I agree with that.

I agree with that.Harley Davidson motorcycles have more domestic content today than they did 15 years ago. Shocks, wheels, tires and gauges - that's about it.

edit:

Of course, their T-shirts and other clothing are made overseas....

THe foreign percentage definition is harder than ever, if not impossible to tell.

Which one of the following is a foreign-made vehicle?

BMW Z3
Mazda 626
Mitsubishi Eclipse
Nissan Quest
Mercedes ML320
Cadillac Catera

Like those Tundra, they look good and everyone seems to like their reliability.

I'll take a stab and say the Cadillac Catera.

Actually Toyota Camry's are made entirely in the USA. Cant say that for a Chevy or Ford:rolleyes:

That's it! The American brand I like now is Saturn, they are turning out a bunch of nice cars! I'm interested to see when they turn out a nice truck or SUV bigger than the Vue.

I'll take a stab and say the Cadillac Catera.

I don't like either. I still consider my GMC truck that was assembled in Madison Wisconsin and is a majority US held/ owned company the best thing I can do to keep middle class americans afloat. While purchasing a vehicle made in the US such as a Camry supports a US job base they are not the same as supporting the companies that actually support the communities in which the vehicles are produced and not hold the carrot to dozens of communities thoughout the US and make a decision based for plant location based upon right to work, at will employers and tax concessions that strip the fabric of the intention of automotive production as we once knew it to be.


Certainly times have changed and GM for one has not done what they should have done to remain in the distant forefront as they should be. BUT - I ain't buying no god damn Toyota.

Again - just my opinion....

I own a GMC pickup and a GMC Yukon FWIW

JCrosby enjoy your new truck

American car companies want you to buy a new car every five years so that's how long they last, the Japanese car companies build cars to last for as long as you want to drive it. Excluding the truck market though.

Who is laying off US workers and who is hiring them? Who is REALLY helping the working class Americans?

Probably not the corporate execs in the ivory towers in Detroit...

Love my '07 Tundra ... American designed, American built, 75% American components. Best thing about it ... gas, oil, and filters is all it needs.

To each, their own. At least we all love MC's!
