Quite so! Here are a few samples taken during boom times:

both the times show lots of cars lying around. What's the point here? how can one determine that these cars are for sale or jut lying around waiting to be dispatched?

The first pic definitely states a lot, over stock is the precise word if to be used in this pic, the test track at the factory has been used to stock cars as dealers are not accepting deliveries.

As all parties must come to an end and wake up to eventuality that there's hard work and steadfast dedication in hardwork,
economical cyclically speaking, it was a party we had especially the US senior management and those who made millions.

Now comes the morning after.

Was talking to someone at LandRover the other day on new projects - They have pushed back the project's because they have something like 7500 unsold cars. Thats small numbers for the likes of Honda and Toyota but for LR i guess its alot.

Also the rumour is that there are Buy one get one free deals for LandRovers in America. Is this true?

What I'm worried about the cars being piled up in their test tracks, and that's probably a genuine case of stocks piling up due to economic downturn.
