Beginning Monday, October 8, FoMoCo will suspend production of its F-series Super Duty pickup for two weeks. According to Ford, sales have slumped because of the housing slowdown (Damn subprime mortgage market!), a variable that seems to have a profound effect on pickup sales. Ford's sales analyst, George Pipas, says that the production halt is a way to avoid excess inventory and has nothing to do with September's sales decline of Ford pickups by 20.8-percent.
