"The world's largest automobile market is China, which also has one of fastest-growing auto industries. Likewise, higher-quality Chinese pickup trucks are spreading globally, which means they're winding up in the hands of rebel groups.

Rear window gun rack and confederate flag are optional.

Dan, knock it off. I had about 3 responses for your comment but don't want to visit the K-9 Kennel on account of evading the bleeper machine. It's Good Friday so don't get me in trouble just two days away from my Easter basket.
