ToMoCo Is The New FoMoCo: Toyota Passes Ford As #2 US Automaker


We've gotta apologize...we were a bit drunk this afternoon and may have missed this at first, but after sobering up and taking a closer look at the sales numbers...plus a thoughtful kick in the ass...we were finally able to notice this:

TOTAL US AUTO SALES, JULY 2006
1.) General Motors
406,298

2.) Toyota
241,826

3.) Ford
241,399

4.) DaimlerChrysler
171,940

So really, this doesn't mean a whole helluva lot especially considering ToMoCo passed FoMoCo in global sales almost half a decade ago. Except if you're counting pride, 'cause in that case it means a shit-load.
