Hahahahahaha. The hino truck ladies huddled around the crap-ass semi.
Has anybody else read the story about how Ford taught most of Vietnam's motoring press to drive so that they could review the Ford laser. One journo famously said, "The Ford laser is a fantastic car. When I put my right foot down on the right pedal, it goes forward, but when I put the same foot on the left pedal, it stops. Surely this is the greatest car ever!"

Heh, no but I think i'll look for it. That sounds pretty damned funny.

Looks like a great autoshow! /sarcasm :D

^ yeap it sucked :p but i wouldn't blame them.. it was only like their first or 2nd year at it.. and the motorcycle/car ratio in vietnam is 100:1! Cars there are so expensive! For instance, a Ford Escape 2.3L would cost $40,000!?!! So the cars I see on the road are either the worst (protons, ssangyongs and other brands i dont even know) or the best. I've seen lots of 760Li's and S500s roaming the main district along with literally dozens of Camry's, LandCruisers, etc. :)

kudos to them for trying though :D

Where in Viet Nam was this? We never go to Viet Nam during the good times. Always during the summer (ours) when it's coolest, but there's really never that many special things going on like Tet when we get there.

BTW, I agree with the Vietnamese-American girls vs. the Vietnamese girls. It's amazing how much hotter they are here. :mrgreen:
