    yep......many ford plants are closing or cutting back.. sounds like they have temporaly shut down the production of the commercial truck line too. no one is buying suv's and pickups now with the unstable fuel market. no big suprise, it's not just a ford thing, dodge and chevy have already done the same months ago. say hello to toyota, as they are the #1 selling vehical now. many other asian manafactures also are itching their way up the ladder step by step. the days of chevy, ford, and dodge ruling the united states are over......this is hard to belive living here in the kansas city area, but when i go out of town "imports" are what you see consumers driving.

    I have been to a toyota plant in Kentucky, and been to claycomo. Big diference toyota had to drill holes in their sequia to get the doors to shut, air tight wouldn't shut. Kentucky Toyota almost got to make the hybrid escapes because claycomo almost never could get them produced after Toyota designed them. Remember the hand built blackwoods at claycomo the first ones. What about the ones that don't open because of frame problems 1997, and 2006. I wouldn't want to be in a wreck in one if it caught on fire (like Blackwoods did) with a frame that bends without being driven in the factory parking lot. No I don't,and have never owned a toyota but I would.
