Im likeing this thread my friend has 2006 chevy silverado 1500 and hes always saying i look like what the rest of the worlds thinks most americans look like(im not fat though but idk if its just the english that think were allfat) but im driving a jap car and i keep saying my truck was made in america he doesnt believe me and refuses to accept it haha so where are silverados built? Please tell me not in the US so i can rub it in, not that he'd believe me
Dont know about 2006, but my 2009 GMC was made in Mexico. Yes Im ashamed.
My 2009 Scion TC says made in Japan on it. I dont care though.
I have had the Scion almost a year and have not had one problem out of it. If it is going to be reliable and last a while it really dont matter where it is made.
It is cool that the Tundra is made in San Antonio TX though.
My boots are broken and my brain is sore
Memory lane up in the head lights
She wrote "call me" in the dirt on the hood of my truck

Also, my new wife's brother (family too) is a GM nutswinger. He has the 4 door Silverado. Fairly new - like 2009 to 2011 model I think. He bagged on me the day he saw my truck thinking he was being funny and using me as the butt of his jokes in front of his family. So I turned around and said, "My truck has nearly half a liter more displacement, significantly more horsepower and torque, more cabin space, longer factory warranty, better gas mileage, and more American made parts than yours and you're going to call me out on buying foreign?" Argument ended immediately.
Want me to come over to the next family function and gut him?
The voices in my head don't like you.
If you are a fan of fat girls, Dave Matthews CD's are better than a ham on a fishing pole.
Only had to outrun 1 of them...that I know of. We used to ride up and down I-20 doing mile long 100+mph wheelies. Every once in a while we would see one hit their brake lights, going the other direction, so we would set 'em down and haul ass. Our group was never chased by cops, because we didn't stick around long enough to find out. One time when I was solo, I was effin off on the interstate and passed a parked cop on my back tire. He turned his lights on and pulled out on the road. I GTFO of dodge, going 170-180 or so, took the next exit, took a few turns here and there, and hid somewhere for about an hour. I was scared. That didn't stop me from being stupid though, when my son was born I stopped riding the thing and sold it, and rode my Harley exclusively from then on
Couldn't you have simply taken it for a nice ride and enjoyed yourself?
Why does every bike ride have to end in wheeilies or 120mph police chases?
Maybe we should ban bikes.
Because it is fun And like I said, if you are only going 120 and being chased, you're doing it wrong
Also, it was getting to the point that going on a peaceful cruise, leaning forward, started bothering my wrists. Peaceful rides on my cruiser, sitting back, is a lot more comfy, and doesn't aggitage my wrists
On a smaller scale, the bail-out would be equivalent to:
A small business in a small community, that employs many of that community's residents and supplies most of that community with a product,....
starts to struggle and accumulate debt, to the point that they will go out of business (costing the communuty both jobs and a product).
So, the community comes together and pitches in to loan that company enough money to get back on it's feet (because they don't want to lose the jobs or the product).
Then, said company turns around and outsources the manufacturing of it's product, so it can turn a profit, in order to both stay on it's feet and repay the loan.
I think I would be sorry that I helped them in the first place, if I loaned someone money to stay in business and they turned around and sent the work to Mexico (instead of keeping it local) and then charged me the same or more for a product that's barely on par with it's competition. At the very least, the product should also be sold in the country where it's being made and I should be considered a shareholder and/or get the product at close to cost.
So, basically, borrow everyone's money, fire everyone, pay someone in another town, half as much to keep making my product, then bring it back to town and try selling it to all the people I just borrowed money from, who, most of which, no longer have the money to even buy it.
Did I over-simplify it, or is that about what happened?
Obama says he saved umpteen thousand/million/whatever jobs by lending them money.
What jobs? The ones in Mexico?
What I would like to know is, once most of the American population is working at McDonalds and Walmart, who's going to buy all these $30, 40, 50K trucks that the big 3 are making in other countries and trying to sell here?

I got married young (no money, no big wedding) so my oldest sister threw us a party. She had just bought a house and had a big yard and garage and it was summer.
My older brothers/sisters actually grew up with all my (ex)wife's aunts/uncles. So, there were quite a few people there. Two big families of drunks, at one house.
The one aunt was trashed and she brought her drunk, trailer park badass BF with her.
He kept walking around, asking everyone if they wanted to arm wrestle him for $20.
My oldest brother walked up to him, straight-faced and said, "I'll knife-fight you for $30"..........
the guy turned around, walked away and didn't say another word to anyone and they left a half hour later.
Look on his face was priceless. I'll remember that forever.
Figured you would appreciate that story.

Love me a good 'ol trailer park wedding...the best kinds, and most of 'em usually result in a youtube video being posted
Hey, my sister was actually doing well at the time and had a nice house.
It was my wife that brought the trailer crowd.
My family had just about made it out of the park,.....
and I went and married right back into it.
