Toyota Getting Bigger or Just Greedy?

Toyota Motor Corp. is considering expanding its manufacturing capacity in North America and is currently reviewing sites, spokesman Dan Sieger said on Thursday.

"We are looking at sites," he said, but declined to reveal details.

They just opened a new Truck Plant in Texas in 2006.

You can almost follow the progress of Toyota's dimise as they follow in the foot steps of what is causing the American Auto Makers problems right now.

I just hope the American companies pull through without too much more damage.

I like those full size Tacoma trucks... but I don't think I'd buy one new. Well, hell, to be honest, I ain't buyin' anything new, but I'd still probably go with Chevy or Dodge. I just ain't a "Ford Man"...

Somethin' else came to mind while I was reading that post... You wonder if they're not doin' some of this to try to win friends and influence people since they're gettin' into NASCAR...

I have heard that Toyota is trying to break into the Redneck, I mean NASCAR market.

That will never happen cause when anybody thinks of trucks Toyota isn't the first, second or even third company they think of.

They're not "trying", they already have:

In the Nextel series:

Then in the truck series:

Here's the deal for '07...
