One of the things I learned early-on at E.F. Hutton: 'Economics-101' (The law of Supply & Demand) - "Talk is cheap, because the Supply exceeds the Demand!"

The top of the salt shaker came off and it dumped the whole load!

The credibility of news stories in general always goes out the window for me when I read an article on a subject I know about and find it so full of errors. Always makes me wonder about the accuracy of news stories on a subject I know little about.

Another example; remember in the late 70's and early 80's when the big 3 were losing market share to Japanese makes? I well remember a common critique of Detroit was their unwillingness to build right hand drive vehicles suitable for sale/export to Japanese customers. That I knew Ford had been building RHD cars and trucks from the beginning and still were in England, Australia and South Africa made me realize how shallow and poorly researched reporting could be. I could only assume the same was true for the rest of it.

Export to Japan was not viable for business reasons. Japan is the master of what are known as "non-tariff barriers". Through those, they make it too expensive to do business there.

Where is Rob Heyen?
He straightened us out on the Model K, lets hope he will do a story on the Model TT.
