24. but Toyota can't make them fast enough
Edited on Wed Jul-14-04 08:50 PM by Independent429
The big three are getting their asses handed to them by Toyota and some of the other "foreign" American-made companies. Once Toyota builds a new American plant for the Prius, those guys are screwed!

Bush doesn't care about selling cars. He just wants to give more no-bid contracts to his buddies.
