I guess either your office is strange, or else Phoenix is. Around here I seem to see more Fords than GM products (especially in the pickup/SUV category - I can't in fact instantly recall ever having seen an S10), but not all that many of either. But why rely on personal observation, when sales figures are readily available? In the '60s, GM had nearly 50% of the US market, now it's about 20%. So four out of five American car buyers don't buy GM cars.
