As I was digesting the latest auto sales numbers, I saw one bullet point cross the newswires that I keep thinking about. For the first time since 1931 Ford is not #2 in U.S. Auto Sales behind General Motors . The second place slot is now controlled by Toyota .
If you've read this or any other auto blog for some time, this does not come as a surprise. Toyota outsold Ford several months in 2007, and this year end figure confirms what we've been seeing for some time.
