The originator of this thread and CNN both lack overall historical
knowledge of the facts.

It's an intentionally toothless threat.

"Chrysler" and Toyota are both laughing, "Big whoop....so what". Go for
it. Give it all you got.

All the information below is publicly available for download and the
vehicles listed have already survived multiple purchase boycott attempts
by the shrieking nuts who fall from trees daily in this state.


California has traditionally been a Ford customer first, MOPAR 2nd, Chevy,
Nissan and others when the fancy strikes them.

The CHP and most law enforcement departments drive Ford and Dodge
vehicles. Ford has the larger share.

Ford 57,946
Chevy 36,112
Dodge 19,566
Dodge RAM 15,680
BMW 500
Chrysler 94
Jeep 1,532
Nissan 1,011
GMC 6,927
John Deere 5,418
Sea Ray 20
Buick Century 18
Toyota 4,796
Kia 62
Hyundai 84
Honda 3023
Pontiac 589
Caterpillar 1,255
Kawasaki 715

There are 210,772 line items in this spreadsheet.

The way this boycott thing works is it goes in the crapper as soon as law
enforcement or the politically connected, i.e. DWP place a requisition.
