looks like gm's got 243,621 sales in Russia so far this year vrs 140,226 looks like a total of 73% up from last year

vrs toyota's 110,484 this year and 68,133 last year, a total 62 % up... (62% is lower then 63, the average growth in the country)

... i can still hear it ringing

I'm afraid we have awakened a sleeping giant and filled it with terrible resolve
