Police Cruiser Stops Doughnut Truck

Happy Monday! Couldn’t resist putting this photo up of a Police Cruiser pulling over a Krispy Kreme doughnut truck. The police probably had good cause to pull over the truck, but come on that’s funny.

Toyota Tundra Driving Granny Fends Off Robbers

Would be robbers learned a valuable lesson recently – don’t try to rob Grannies in Toyota Tundras.

Please note although the initial reports of this truck being a Tundra, many commenters below have correctly pointed out that the truck is a Tacoma not a Tundra.

The “F” in Ford Stands for “Fleet” – Ford Fleet Sales Lead Industry

When Ford and GM owners brag about sales figures to somehow “prove” their trucks are the best available, I say three things:

  1. Consumers aren’t always rational – They don’t necessarily buy the “best” car or truck on the market. There’s a lot of emotion in car purchases.
  2. Sales figures are influenced by a variety of factors – From incentives to geography to politics to a consumer’s previous experiences. You can’t study them in a vacuum.
  3. Fleet sales – Ford and GM roll massive numbers of fleet trucks into their sales figures.

I’m going to focus on #3 right now (you can read more about #1 and #2 here).

The news today is that almost one-third of Ford’s sales are to fleets, which are defined by convention as companies owning at least 15 trucks. Chrysler-Fiat? 30% GM? Just 26%.

Here are fleet sales numbers for the first quarter of 2012, courtesy of Automotive News (subs. req’d):
