I spoke with Mark at Beavertail, but their boats are not fast enough for my liking. I can get going about 55-60mph and they don't like to power/prop theirs to do much over 35-40mph. They do float in a mudpuddle though!

Don't get me wrong, I burn through cars like toilet paper, but I'm not fooling anyone by saying it doesn't cost anything. :roll eyes:

Your theory is okay about trade in value....all the way until you try and trade in on a new model year. Just ask a first get Tundra owner, or a T100 owner. Or try a Ford truck owner how their resale value is. How much are Raptors used? Hmm.... They do have a nice blue though, just like the owners after they realize their depreciation, blue, blue, blue, singing the blues.
Old thread but interesting.
I agree with you on the never ending payments. I keep my trucks long after they are paid for and always save money that way wether the replacement is new or used like my 2007 Tundra.
I still feel the way ecconomic advisers recomended 50 years ago ,never finance an automobile or truck for more than 3 years. I have always held to that rule and saved beaucoup $$. Although nowdays with vehicles having much longer life spans I supose the payment duration could be lengthened some.
It is hard to look into future more than 3 years and predict financial stability ,so to protect your investment put at least 20% down and finance for the short term. In that way you will most likely be able to not loose your investment inthe event of downturns like we are now expierencing.
T100s, I bought a new 1995,wanted one earlier but the 3.00 engine was weak ,so waited for new engine. List was around $18800 or so paid $16600 , financed around $6000 @ 3 years . Great truck and same size as full size 1st gen Tundra. Just sold it 2 weeks ago for $5450.
Colors ,Yeah Toyota could offer more , the cheap ass buggers probably go for the black friday specials , but they are building in U.S. with very high North American content and havn`t needed a taxpayer bail out.

Just my 2 cents, but the paint on our trucks kinda suck, just buy one take it to a place that knows there shit, and get it custom painted. It will be cheaper in the long run, and the paint will be better then our factory paint. I my self am thinking of getting my truck painted, not cause i dont like the mag grey but because the paint job is just not the greatest... It just amazes me what people find to be complete deal breakers in there vehicles.... Its like not buying a very nice house cause you dont like the paint. Simple fix really, but to each there own.

They still sell the Corolla in Blue Streak Metallic.

That's cause they are wicked fast.

Do they still sell them with a box of Kleenex for the rear trunk lid?

I have a lot of blue stuff, it's just my color of choice. If a customer is willing to pay extra for a freakin paint job, why not do it for them? It's not like I'm asking for a color they've never produced. Hell, I'm driving a Blue Streak Metallic 2008 right now. I'm sure it would not be difficult for them to do it, they did it 3 years ago. They cater to "rich" and "famous" people when they want something. Why not cater to common people if they are willing to pay?

I saw a basketball player on TV the other day who had a Dodge Challenger that was a convertible, from the factory. I'm not asking for a redesign, I'm asking for a dam COLOR that they have offered in the PAST. I have a hard time giving a company my business who aren't ever willing to go the extra mile for someone.

I have a web design business. My customers get what they want.

Think about this... I've had 3 or 4 Toyotas so far. I buy new ones every 2 -3 years. Wouldn't it be a good business decision for Toyota to want to keep me as a customer? I would think so....

Hell, they have TWO shades of red. Why do they need TWO of the same dam color? At least give us the option to pay more for what we want.

I was thinking a macro economics class might be of some assistance... You can't be the number one car manufacturer in the world catering to the 1%. Just 'aint gonna happen.

And I think Toyota goes the extra mile already. I'm not saying you don't have a point but if they changed the colour scheme and you missed out, pick a different color or buy a slightly inferior truck. what else can I say Suck it up buttercup
