    Besides being a computer geek, I'm also a life-long car freak. I follow auto industry news regularly and I ran across this 'photo story' today. It's photos of thousands (actually, tens of thousands) of new cars that are being stored around the world. Manufacturers are using everything from shipyards to vacant parking lots/structures....even their own test tracks!

    These are cars that the manufacturers haven't yet sold to dealerships. It's rather amazing, and kinda scary, too- LINK

    Toyota has resorted to storing unsold inventory on docked cargo ships (plans for up to 12,500 units)- LINK

    If Ford still owned Aston Martin, there probably would be a few hundred surplus! The new owners probably had the common sense to stop building cars when they're not selling.

    I was an Aston Martin fan until about two minutes ago. That's when I realized that their 'Build Your DB9' doesn't work with Firefox.

    They're dead to me! :mad:

    I'd settle for a real good "Yard Sale" type deal on a new Chevy Impala. I'm willing to pay $12,000 !!!!!!

    HM Toyota made some wise moves though with their left over inventory of seqiouas/Tundras they sent alot of them from the states to like the middle east and desert regions to get rid of there inventory which is a pretty smart move its better then leaving them to rot on the lot.
