This is why I think you should of traded it for that black Toyota it was newer and kids can get loans on it
Orrrrrr, I could skip jumping thru hoops, headaches AND having a truck that I have no interest in in my driveway. "What if" I did the trade and then by the time the Black toyota sold my other deal on the table fell thru? Then I'm sitting with NOTHING and starting from scratch... Where as right now... If my truck doesn't sell in time to take advantage of this other offer... I just build better front spindles for it, new upper control arms, put a heater in it, a carpet kit, headliner and center console and my pictures next desert season are mostly of it more like 5' in the air.
That's the catch, I don't know when the other offer will fall off the table. Right now, that's 100% up to the IRS as to when my friend will have to advertise it publicly and dump it for cheap. Till then, I've got dibs on it. I'm 100% okay with it not selling or with it selling and me getting the F150. I'm 100% not okay with a situation that leaves me without anything in the driveway.
Before the economy fell, selling my truck at this price would've been cake. Like less then a week and it would've been gone. Those are the days when $50-100K sand rails were a dime a dozen and common. Now, people might still have the money but most are still scared to let it out of their pocket.
Heck, I'm afraid to let it out of my pocket. I technically could've sold my truck last night for $10K, pulled what I needed out of savings and hauled home the new truck tonight with my cousin's truck. BUT... I've already set a figure in my head that is the MOST I'm willing to pull from savings to make this deal go thru. That figure happens to land the math at me wanting $15K for my yota. It's worth it but like Marn said, you have to find that right buyer. I've got TONS of interest, just not from that person with $15K in their pocket. I can show you threads where TONS of people have talked about my price being a steal and "wish I had the money"...
"I think khris is in a good spot though. Doesn't really care if it sells, he's not in a financial bind, and he still likes the truck. He will come out on top with whatever happens."
This is 100% the truth... No matter which way it goes, I will have a faster truck one way or another. One way will involve a ford chassis with a chevy drivetrain. The other will involve a red toyota with an upgraded front suspension which will allow me to actually finally tune my shocks and some new interior luxury. No matter what though, it won't involve any trades since the IRS won't take my toyota as payment for my friend.-
