And what about the Rangers?

The wages stay here, and the money to make the vehicles stays in the country. All that would go are the profits. But what does that matter? It won't get pumped back into the economy, because it will go to the company. Same as Ford, the profit will go into the company to make it better. It is not like they are going to dump all of their profits back into the economy.

Little do you know, Toyota USA and Toyota Japan are 2 different companies. They have different CEO's different profits etc. They are 2 seperate companies. So in saying that they money stays here, and drives your economy, which keeps your job.

It is like comparing Ford to a Ford in Europe, totally seperate.

Not trying to start an argument, but in a global economy you can not use that phrase anymore.

Nice ranger though. What is that a 91-92? Looks good, I am on the hunt for a cheapo one to have as a trail truck.

I apologize, but it was inevitable, signs like that are just ignorant.
