    Anyonne notice the proliferation of used car lots lately? As IT drive around,, I notice there is a used car lot about every kilometer, packed with mostly late model used cars and trucks. I think the governments program of subsedizing the purchase of new car and trucks has gotten many Thais into vehicles they can't afford. Simular to what happened in the U.S. with housing. This is creating a bubble that has to rectify it's self sometime soon. When the bubble brakes, I am getting a nearly new used car for cheap. Hope it is soon, as my current vehicle is eight years old.
