So in other words, November sales were the highest because people could not buy in October, but there isn't really any change.

There is just nothing to write about in Forbes so they concocted a story.

More broken window fallacy thinking.

Dealer Inventory for GM rose 49,000 between Oct and Nov to record levels for the "New" GM of 788K. So if Inventory levels had stayed the same Sales would have declined by approximately 43,000. GM is channel stuffing on an unprecedented scale. Look for bargains in the New Year ! Zero Hedge

Hmmm, so most of these sales took place on the Sandy affected east coast? Sales must really suck in flyover country.

Isn’t that just going to depress sales for the next few years? The increase in sales was people replacing their cars ahead of schedule, so the normal replacement sales that would have taken place for the next few years won’t happen.

Yup, clearly we need more catastrophic events to destoy all those old cars.

Then Detroit (uh... plus Toyota) would really thrive.

It’d do great things for the housing industry, too.

Not to mention all those hospitals and undertakers.
