What do you make of this - Thousands of new Ford trucks stored at the Kentucky Speedway. Do you buy the "micro chip shortage" story or do you think there is something else going on.

Maybe an excuse to transition to automated electric cars.

I'm thinking the bottom has dropped out of the new car/truck market and nobody in this failing economy has upwards of 40k dollars to throw at a truck or car. I'm thinking the gov't is artificially keeping new car/truck production going in order to A)disguise the depths of our economic failure and B) to keep the union/labor people happy for as long as possible.
I'm wondering if the "micro chip" shortage is a fabricated story - a way for our gov't to disguise the fact that nobody is buying pricey cars and trucks any more.
If this is happening in Kentucky then I have no doubt same is going on in all cities where there are auto/truck assembly plants.

Rumor has it that many who bought into these electric vehicles are returning / trading them in.

@FEWI these trucks are not electric vehicles. they are line production pick up trucks w/internal combustion engines. The micro-chip is the electronic module/device that controls and monitors all of the systems of the vehicle.

@iThink I know I was responding to Ren777 statement about electric cars.


Do only white men (and their wives) buy Ford trucks?

seems that way - don't see very many Blacks driving pick up trucks - dey luvs dem caddy ack SUVs tho - wit dem 19" wheels, dark glass, and dey be crank'n up dat super base.
