So, you are suggesting africans traveled overseas bought toyotas and shipped them home...all without any marketing by toyota? If you believe that one, I have some ocean front property a couple miles from Ayers Rock for sale.

US brands never were in Africa (at least not marketed) and the Brits entire automotive industry went down the tubes. Plus go back to WWII and before and there really was no market to speak of. 

Hardly surprising they don't sell many down under...you drive on the wrong side of the road and the steering wheel has to be moved at significant expense. I question your sales figures in terms of world wide as I'm seeing tons of Ram pickups around Europe and American pickups are a dime a dozen in Kuwait (only Kuwaitis are allowed to own pickups and they don't keep vehicles more than a couple years) 

Well your exaggerating Style leaves a lot to be desired I've been around Germany and couldn't find too many pickups at all European pick-up sales are roughly 80000 for a population of 650 Million SUVs like Land Cruisers and Nissan Patrols a even more obvious in Kuwait and Qatar much more pickups yes there and are American trucks in Africa remember there was a war in North Africa US heavy trucks were used in some African countries( still see Kenworths and Peterbuilts, plus many Japanese and European Trucks in placesclike Mozambique) as basically all Africa was one huge colony for European nations for years .British trucks were in the many British colonies of Africa, French trucks and cars similarly and as they're European so we're a lot of other European vehicles the Japanese started selling they're vehicles when these countries became independent in the 1960's and built from therr as a result many of the European vehicles disappeared. Next time try and do a history check before you post. Yes I have been to many of the country's in North Africa and some of Southern Africa plus those Gulf States( sand storms and stinking hot)
Us Pickups were sold from dealerships in Australia till 2006. They were competitive in price but rhey realky did not sell. There was no companies doing conversions. Ford mainly bought them in. In Australia we drive on the Right Sideof the Road you drive on the " wrong side of the road"

Far from not selling US HDT' in Africa there are some companies that run them, but the bulk are European and Japanese

They the Pickups are NOT Trucks term only used in NA,have some idea of what people use outside NA[emoticon].. Only now in South Africa they have been selling Pickups they called them " Bakkies" south African Afrikkans slang for baking tin.

Let me remind y'all again, it's a Ram truck owner boasting about the amazing accomplishment of Ram having achieved 100,000 in mileage.

The other past accomplishment was not seeing a mechanic or something breaking down past 7 days.

Good job guys.


Best part, I had nothing to do with it. [emoticon]


It's like a mini vacation. Just sit back have a few beers and watch Elmer Fudd or whomever self destruct. Very entertaining.
