This is pretty darn impressive, although sales have increased for nearly all brands. Toyota was one of the few that had sales actually drop, and I believe it was 7%. They could be running into trouble if this continues.

After posting a sizable sales increase in October, the Ford Motor Company reported today its November 2010 sales figures were up a solid 24 percent compared to the same period last year.

None of the new line is going to hurt them. The new F-150s are stupid good.

I honestly can't wait to see the new twin turbo F150's as that may just be what makes the v8 obsolete. Wait a minute, that PISSES me off.............

The fact that Ford can get upto mid 20's in a full size truck and produce a 3.5 litre V6 that makes 420lb-ft of torque is just mind boggling. The most incredible part is that while premium fuel is recommended, it isn't required. I really hope that Ford brings this twin turbo v6 to the new Exploror as well. The new 2011 F150 is going to be one well rounded mofo in the market as you get a standard v6, twin turbocharged v6, the Mustang 5.0 v8, and the SVT Raptor's 6.2litre v8.

Right now, this is a really good time for us hardcore Ford fans as they are giving us a lot of cheer about. I just wish I would have bought more Ford stock back when it was in penny stock territory.

You're right but hindsight is always 20-20.

Yeah........

I didn't buy very much back then because I was honestly expecting Ford to go into bankruptcy as well. After all, their financials were incredibly horrible and they were saddled with over $30 billion in debt. The few shares I bought have quadrupled in value. The problem though is that it still won't even come close to making up for the amount I lost on everything other than Ford and AMD that I have shares of.

Well, it isn't just me as almost everyone took the same kind of beating I took. After all, when the stock market goes from nearly 13k and crashes like it did in 2008, a lot of wealth is destroyed. This is why I tell people that if you are going to invest in the stock market, do it as a long term goal and only if you don't think you'll need that money right away.
