The sneeky zips couldnt fight their way through the front door. So they are buying their way though the back door.
keep your eyes open and safe boating

Actually Chrysler is not german owned and never was. The two company's merged and if you knew anything about the auto industry Chrysler is now 100% american owned. american based Cerbius bought out Diamlers shares last year. I love OSO. start out with a topic then a whole bunch of people who really dont have a clue or think they have a clue get the whole topic going in a complete different dirrection.

and for the record...a quick google on american parts in trucks indicates that toyota in fact does not have more american made parts than Toyota. Thanks for the wrong info. While your at the google search please google December 7, 1941.

agreed. going back to my original question. why does evenruide(on there infomecial) compair there 2 strokes to all other 4 stokes? It is obvious there would be a wieght difference.

Default E-tec

They do it because the market for outboards is going 4-stroke and they are showing 2-stroke technology is efficient. How many other outboard lines are alowed on europs lakes. And who said they dont make counter rotating gearcases is wrong.

Since you are such a smart azz you may want to spell Cerberus correctly. While I forgot about that merger, the point still stands. Do you know that Cerberus does not have any offshore investments, do you really think that there is not one person outside of this country that owns even a single stock.... 100%, are you sure?
