    I’m digging that album cover, reminds me of a poster my grandfather had in his basement (clearly from the late 60s early 70s judging by the style) of a lady showing off her flexibility by sucking on her own big toe in a beach setting similar to that one.

    Now back to cars, the Cruze is a hit and Nissan has kept roughly the same sales momentum with the new Altima that it had with the old.

    The most interesting race in this pace is that of the trucks. While Ford is still well ahead, if Ram keeps up those torrid gains, the GM twins better look out.

    Of course the large Ram gains over the GM trucks represents an all new 2013 Ram vs. an unchanged GM truck, so we’ll see how the market receives the 2014 GM offerings.

    After having spent some time with various iterations of the new Ram, GM’s game had better be stepped up quite a bit.

    I’m not surprised by the ubiquitous Altima. But living a city that builds the Escape, I was thinking yesterday when I saw one, that they must not be selling well, because I sure haven’t notice many. Unless I have and passed them off as Kias or Hyundais. With these number gains, they’ll cover Louisville like old Explorers have in a few years.

      I’ve seen a good # of Escapes here in the Desert Southwest and a fair number are highly trimmed more expensive models. But yes they do look quite a bit like a Hyundai Tuscon at first glance.

    OMW Springbok radio hits compilation!!! ROTFL… It’s a South African radio station that produced those LP’s every year and got into MASSIVE trouble for their album covers that offended the deeply conservative, right wing, apartheid types.

      The toe sucking poster caused a bit of a kerfuffle too, and was banned by several places that sold posters. The first run of those posters had a problem associated with camels, but was airbrushed out of later runs. The first runs are rare collector’s items today.

    Ford sold nearly as many F-150s last month as Toyota’s RAV4 has sold all year.
