And yes, as Bogert said, "it's odd to visit a place that will remind many of us that we have lived during the entire U.S. advent of a car line begun in Japan by Kiichiro Toyoda in 1937."

We all remember that fanous phrase, "What's good for General
Motors is good for the country."

And then what happened? And Chrysler was gobbled up by Cerberus.

It seems no one cares, where are all the automotive fans?

Or are we not interested in museums?

Yes, but why's there this silence in the "Breeze"?
Did John Bogert "talk too much"?

Or are we trying to ignore Toyota?
