obyone you fall off the surfboard??? or are you talking about the ford tonka concept?

Is labor cheaper there than in Mexico?
Not a Dodge Ram 1500 to be seen in your list.
Was that a mistake or intentional?
#9 of 15 Yes I meant Tonka trucks and not anything to do

with Ford. Try doing a google search on tonka trucks...first name to appear on the top of the list is Toyota Tundra.....wonder what that means?

<< Mississippi ??
Is labor cheaper there than in Mexico? >>
I don't know why or how the decision was made. BTW, I "think" it's Mississippi, but I'm not certain. I do know it's in the USA, however.
#11 of 15 It is Mississippi

at least thats what they have been telling us citizens.
What was that cheap labor comment again? I take alot of pride in my state.

I'm not poking fun at Mississippi, I'm sure it is a nice state and I would love to visit there someday. I was just wondering....why Mississippi though?
What is the draw for Nissan to build the Titan there...cheap labor....low taxes???
For some automobile manufacturers (GM, VW, etc.), it seems Mexico is the place to have some of their products built.

You crack me up as usual. It does not surprise me that the Tundra is rated as a 'Tonka'. LOL
Sorry about that... it was not intentional.. so here is my revised list....
Ford F-150 - Cos I have one (well Supercrew F-150)
GMC Sierra 1500 - Nice new redesign for 2003.
Chevy Silverado 1500 - I had one w/probs. Still a nice truck.
Dodge Ram 1500 - Do not like the look, quality, etc. Although the new 'Hemi' looks interesting.
Toyota Tundra - Test drove one a few times. As Obyone stated, its a Tonka truck.
Nissan Titan - Ranks last for me purely on looks. May be a good performer though.

I think i read somewhere nissan chose Miss. because of a tax break or something
Jan 25, 2003 (5:23 am)
Your right...Giant tax breaks.....NON- UNION
labor...Same as Toyota building tundras and
BMW building those suvs.....Not to mention a
few of those states are Right To Work states
so no Union interference (spl)...
