  1. As they continue to build roads and cater to the Chinese, everything else is left unattended especially the necessary facilities like sanitation treatment plants so it doesn't drain into the sea, more garbage cans throughout Pattaya not only in the tourist area, a way to capture rain water runoff instead of dumping it into someone empty land.
  2. Best Truck Ford or Toyota!

    I understand that.... didn't miss it! people keep on saying "Design" does one mean the exterior of the vehicle? if that is the case looks isn't all in buying a car as noted by a few who design and engineer the transmission? Truck runs good but if you can't put it in gear what we got? Just a vehicle that looks good on the rack while I'm in the waiting area looking at it!
  3. Best Truck Ford or Toyota!

    I heard that but I also heard they still share some of the internal part. When you look at the Ranger and Mazda 50? side by side there are some similar lines on the vehicle. This is what I was told also about the Chevy Truck with the Izusu.

    Not rocket science! If I had a Ford, based on comments I would have put the sign up and get to the nearest showroom for Toyota
  5. Best Truck Ford or Toyota!

    Remember, there is more to design is what I'm saying. Offices and location are global today not because they are design better from the States but due to cost etc.. There is more to design at least for me what makes the thing run, service is a major concern to me. Trump might be talking America first bring back all the offshore stuff, but I'm glad others are making them. I fear the old days, where you only had American to chose from, having to make sure you don't buy a vehicle made on Friday and Monday.
  6. Best Truck Ford or Toyota!

    Like Ford, I'm sure whether the Hilux/Fortuner is designed in Australia or not, I believe I can safely say it isn't all pure Australian to say that Toyota a Japanese company the Japanese don't have a final say in all matters. That being said that goes for Ford. When it comes to vehicles the Hilux might not look at goods as the Ford, but I'm looking for the overall package, I don't want to be looking at a Ford sitting up on the rack being fixed all the time. I'm willing to go less in style and get a whole lot of good history in return. As for Ford trucks #1, the number I believe are deceptive since majority are purchased in the States, which has a much larger population. When it comes to Mazda, it is part of Ford, and Isuzu is part of Chevy or at least they use a similar components and whenever I here Chevy I get nightmares.
  7. Best Truck Ford or Toyota!

    Thanks for the information, but Austrian? I just have a sense that although the design etc. and building is not in American I just can't get over the imput that Michigan might still have... that is enough.. to make me go Toyota and the more that is pointed out to me of the Ranger in the conversation the more I head down Chon Buri to Toyota. I took the chance once that was enough!
  8. Best Truck Ford or Toyota!

    Yes, I think so agree 100% just responding and agreeing with the poster who referred to the F-150 made by Ford what is the relevance. Americans particularly in the Mid-West like what they like many will never change. My cousin who is a contractor as the top of line Tuntra, what a truck it is if you are open minded to owning one. I've only seen on Tuntra here in Pattaya, but as you noted if you order one from Japan it would cost a arm and leg due to the import tax plus where would you park it.
  9. Best Truck Ford or Toyota!

    The design and engineer still come out of their HQ in Michigan. If you have proof it doesn't educate me please. Thanks
  10. Best Truck Ford or Toyota!

    Agree, if he wants to get into it, Americans in the Midwest love Ford and Chevy it seems police fireman in the big City like them too but that is because they never tried a Tuntra!
  11. Best Truck Ford or Toyota!

    The next truck I buy most likely will be my last. I love the way the Ford looks inside and outside! The leather seats are unreal for a truck. Been to the show floor and check out the service area on Sukhumvit in Pattaya. What bothers is it is American although it is built here, but I still believe the design, techno especially the engineering is still American? I started with American, nothing but problems then move on to European like VW, BMW, then one day I wanted to go back to big narrow it down to two Toyota and Jeep. I loved the Jeep design powerful large engine and took a chance what a big mistake and a pure lemon. Said to myself never again American at that time Jeep was own and run by Benz? I have nothing but good service with Toyota here, at my age there is only one choice Toyota no matter how much I like Ford.
  12. Confusing situation paying water bill

    This is my observation, since I keep tight track of the water and electric. I've seen the guy do it first hand here in the Darkside. He pulls up in his bike, take a device that looks just like a phone takes a photo of the meter numbers but he doesn't give me the slip right away. He takes off and continues to read other homes then he comes back much later to place the slip into my mailbox. I pay at 7/11, right away that is the way I do things since I've already set aside the money because as noted I keep tabs on the meter myself. Within a hour I'm paying never had a problem at 7/11 and here is why? 7/11 does lots of transaction by the time they reconciled all their transaction the Water Department would have their records updated. Years ago since I was going pass the department I decided to pay, as noted they told me to come back since not in system, I walked out cross the busy Soi and paid it at the 7/11. I think the meter reader has to download his device end of the day?

  14. I use to own or say collect guns and whatever weapons I could get my hands on, my stock would make the guy recently in Vegas look small. The last few years I've sold everything since I don't have any place to store them any longer. I'm a believer that it is not the gun that kills but the owner! and as we know that happens everywhere in the world. Sadly, the problem goes a lot deeper here than the Thais understand. R.I.P. to all the victims
  15. New SUV.

    Sure it could be a newer model, but even with the bad photo the line on the vehicle are all different especially the side. Glass roof someone noted, it so then it is the GM, made in China now? Saw something similar at Big C the other day.
