North Koreans To Be Toyota-Free

Posted by: David Kiley on February 21, 2007

Thanks to www.autoextremist.com…..According to The Sydney Morning Herald North Korean leader Kim Jong-il has ordered the seizure of all Japanese-made cars in the communist country after he spotted a broken-down model blocking a road. The order came on January 1 when Kim visited the embalmed body of the North’s founding leader Kim Il-sung, South Korea’s Yonhap news agency said, in a sign of his growing discontent with Japan’s hard-line stance on North Korea.

And this is the guy we think we can strike a nuclear non-proliferation deal with?
