August 29, 2011 - The Car in Front

On Saturday we were out driving with the kids and I saw a model of Toyota that I had never seen or heard of before.  That led to a discussion about how many different Toyota models there are in Kenya (I said 50 - of course because I tend to exaggerate - and Kristoffer said 20 - thinking that maybe that was even too high).  The discussion led to us making a list of every kind of Toyota model we saw while out and about that day.   There were 40 different kinds of Toyotas in all - so I wasn't that far off, and Kristoffer was (note: I really like winning these types of bets).  We often see cars that have spare tire covers with the slogan "The Car in Front is ALWAYS a Toyota"...and in Kenya, that is almost always true!  How many of these models have you heard of in the country where you live?
