Just drove by a recycling yard on my way home and I saw 100 Tacomas being dropped off. Gotta love those perfect Toyotas. Ever wonder why this stuff never makes the news. If it were one of the big 3 it would be plastered all over the place.

Wow! Very interesting. First time I heard of this and it has to be an industry first. You know for a lot of folks, the compensation offered is weak if they had planned on keeping the truck for an extended period of time. I mean put yourself in the shoes of a recently fired worker or foreclosed home owner. To buy again with credit being wiped out could be a real hardship.

Man if this was the big 3 they would have been crucified. I wonder how many will be destroyed?

They went to salvage auctions and were sold to recycle yards where they'll be parted out and the parts will be sold. The recycle/salvage yards will clean up on these.
