Week in review:
I must say thank you. It’s been a long ride. Over the years we have seen posters come and go, some angry and some just simply at a loss for words. From the ultra emotional beat up Pontiac driving poster “whatever” now known as “GM makes crap” to the now defunct Tundra driving and once respected “truckin” aka Gustavo, we have enjoyed you all.

So we find Toyota in a slump. Who cares? That's not important.

The screams came in droves.

“But my Prius is better than your Volt and even though the plug in version isn’t made yet, it’s gonna be here in two more years and it will once again be the best!" moaned the wee wee poster from Il. In the other corner we hear “but Toyota lost its fleet sales” and this is umm good!”

We even had an appearance from the broken English “Con-Tiki,” oh what a treat.“Toyota will learn and is setting the bar” he whimpered.

Sure we had a few more Toyota recalls and though we find every auto maker up but Toyota, one thing remains constant and that is the participation.

So with that said I must congratulate everyone on the participation and remind all the disgruntled apologists of one important factor, without you there is no us. Take the time and reflect on your shortcomings. Be proud of your stamina and don’t give up.

Last but not least, we should all realize that car companies all have recalls. These are machines and at some point we’ll find abnormalities. Given the high standards of today, most any car you have the joy to drive is leaps and bounds over the offerings of the past.

Good job and Godspeed to all regardless what you drive.

I just wanted to bump this up. It’s important that everyone here understands how much they are appreciated. Regardless of the car you drive, be it a little Toyota or a big bad Suburban, you are all respected and thanked for participating. Have a happy and warm holiday season.
