Illustration for article titled Pickup Trucks Overtake Econoboxes, Return To Top Sales Spot In October

We just saw the following chart of Top 10 retail vehicle sales for October, 2008 showing the Ford F-150 and Chevy Silverado overtaking the Toyota Camry and Corolla. Looks like that drop in gas prices to under $2 per gallon due to a lack of economic growth have already made us forget about the summer pains of high gas prices. Back to the good ol' days of 2006 when 'merican automakers built the kinda vehicles 'mericans want to buy! Well, if they had access to credit. Yee-HAW! [via AIADA]

Wait a minute, the Impala and the Crapolla/Matrix are for kids both have higher sales in October '08 than in the same month '07? WTF? Are they being bought here and shipped to Dubai? Are they made out of Government cheese and are being given to the impoverished?

Geez, and I'd hate to be an Accord right now, that's a 36% drop year over year. Oh how the mighty have fallen.
