72. Listen (fill fill the blank) Did I say (anything) about any Japanese
car or any car being better than a Chevy? I have owned numerous Fords, 1 AMC, 1 VW, 1 Subaru and 1 Toyota. I have owned 2 Chevys that I bought used one was a Corvair and we know about that one don't we and a 1964 Impala that was OK. I bought 2 Chevys new, one was a 1977 Blazer, the worst car I ever owned by far. The other one was a 1971 Nova the second worse car I ever owned. I bought two imported cars in my entire life a used VW Beetle and a Subaru Justy both were fairly good cars. I presently own a 1999 Mercury Tracer, it was made by Ford at the Wayne plant (USA), it has been excellent. I also own a 2006 Toyota Tacoma it was made in Freemont California (USA) a plant owned jointly by GM and Toyota. I have a couple minor complaints about the Toyota, it isn't perfect either but so far it has been excellent. They produce the Tacoma and also some cars for GM at Freemont and they are Union I believe. I said I had a lot of trouble with the last two Chevys I bought and swore I would never ever buy another. I said I like the looks of the new Camaro but I will reserve judgement on it until it proves itself over time.
