Well, this map says many things:

  • The US is overly obsessed with pickup trucks.
  • US actually has a lot of foreign cars.
  • Ford actually has a better time than GM in America. GM does better in South America.

It's from 2014, so I reckon it's partially accurate, though Ram trucks (Dodge, really) have just seemingly taken the truck market by storm. I'm speaking largely anecdotally and factually, their sales numbers keep ballooning. I'd be curious to see in which states that took out either Ford / Chevy.

Hey could any of yall tell me if these tires will fit on my rim or not? One of my tires blew out and I'm going to have too replace it. My current tires are P205/60R16/91T and my friend has two spare P225/60R16/97S size tires I could buy really cheaply compared to a new P205 size tire. Would these tires work? It would save me a ton of money if they'll fit properly.

Your friend's tires are 2cm wider than yours, they might be too wide to safely fit on your rim.

Eh maybe not, Japan might've gained by then. The new map would probably have RAM doing a good job, maybe Chrysler and GMC too, I doubt Jeep would do good.

CYNIC, n. A blackguard whose faulty vision sees things as they are, not as they ought to be. Hence the custom among the Scythians of plucking out a cynic's eyes to improve his vision.

The Hudson Hornet that followed it around and kept it going the entire rally. You get points for being helpful to other ralliers in a Lemons Rally and that dude in the Hornet was a dead on hero to those dudes in the Yugo.

I am an American Christian male with an interest in a variety of topics, like SF, classic rock, guns, space travel, military history, and video games (Nintendo/retro). Franchises I like include Star Wars, Star Trek, and Transformers.
