    I found this interesting; it's a slide show of new cars building up in storage areas.

    I expect that Toyota should be hurt less than some manufacturers because they use a "pull" inventory system that shouldn't leave them with as much excess inventory.

    (Now that I think about it, if Universities were to use a pull system maybe there wouldn't be so many underemployed PhDs around.)

    Yes, but then we would have an oversupply of undereducated, brighter than normal juvenile deliquents. We need them in grad school to keep them occupied.

    So when are they going to start selling them at steep discounts?

    I know there's a big car park of Hondas in Southampton waiting for anyone overseas to order one.

    (The native British car industry is more-or-less dead. The biggest producers in the UK in 2007 were Nissan, Toyota, Honda, MINI, then Land Rover.)

    When MG was bought by China, I wanted to hold a wake!
