Obviously the original intent for a manufacture involvement besides beating the other guy was to win on Sunday sell on Monday! I'm curious because we are your typical fan what kind of car do you drive? I'm a Ford guy obviously and I have my reasons but these are my cars.. 05 Toyota Avalon my daily driver 239k probably the best car I've ever owned. Toyota is a great manufacture. 05 Ford Explorer wives daily 166k has been a good truck for us. Fits our families needs. 89 mustang 45k my toy 88 GMC c1500 my "work" truck i use this for all my truck needs had it for 7 years has been very useful. So even though I'm a Ford guy I own a GM and Toyota because they were great deals that I'd have to be an idiot to pass up.
