But wait! If I'm to believe the advertising from Toyota for the last 5yrs or so, they're 100% American! How can the be both 100% American AND suffering from a parts shortage due to inclement tectonics in Japan??? Wait a minute... I think it's possible they might have been stretching the truth in their ads, just to sway the opinion of people who might not be as well informed in their decision-making as they could. We've all been hornswaggled, dag-nabbit!
