I'll bring the dip, if you'll bring the Dostoevsky.

Good Morning Bronco6g Nation,

I just came across this article about a shortage of semiconductors at Ford and Nissan. They it impacted a SUV plant in Kentucky, but it didn't say anything about impacting the Bronco lines. At any rate it makes me wonder it Ford has enough semiconductors to build Broncos or could the shortage push out deliveries till 2023. Or will Ford sacrifice other models to keep the Bronco production going?

Not surprising if you do anything with computers this has been talked about in that sphere for the last 9+ months. Ram, CPU, GPU, shortages and that all trickles down with the lion share of that going to work and gaming pcs being built with all the recent new tech that has a lot of people building new systems.

It’s actually a pic from a chip shortage that plagued Japan after they basically ran out of potatoes one year.
You're usually a good source of info but I'm a Canadian chip expert. The photo is even named "storm chips."

Japan ain't got nothing on the run on chips before an East Coast storm.

These are the chip shortages I worry about.

Hah! I even stole it from the CBC ?

That’s what I get for not paying attention while clicking down the GIS rabbit hole for just the right image.

Thanks for keeping me honest.
