K Bro. Educate me. Share your source of your original point.

Every poor person and their poor mothers were buying vehicles at crazy prices and in droves for the last two years. We saw 6-figure car selling prices in virtually every manufacturer with people dishing out ADM on Ford Expeditions. You think people who have money are the ones buying these trucks? I’ve been here long enough to know I’m one of only 4 people here buying in cash with a thread every other day about financing with no money down over 84+ months.

We are seeing more repos than ever before in the history of the automotive industry with wholesale prices in just the last 30 days tanking depending on your source between 10% - 20% that’s absolute insanity. You have the tech industry with avg annual incomes of $200M+ in dual household families completely dried up, $0 savings and the largest increase in household credit card debt recorded since 2011 per various Morgan Stanley and Charles Schwab investment bankers.

You think people buying this truck are like me? No. I just scored a new R allocation today because “surprise surprise” someone backed out of an order. This is what we are seeing, special orders being made by people who thought that they had income who no longer have any. Couple that with rate increases and a general pessimistic view of the economy in general and virtually the only buyers that may be remaining who can even afford this truck will be a me. But that’s not the case today, and it’s laughable.

Your original point was that inventory would increase because of furloughed or fired individuals. It’s possible the allocation you “scored” was because someone decided it was stupid to pay some crazy ADM and passed it to the next person. Until I see some direct correlation between layoffs and increased availability of Raptor R’s, your point is pure conjecture. You may not want to believe it, but there are tons of people on your “level” that can afford the truck. And also many who think it’s a peasant’s vehicle or just another truck.

Edit: Found it.
They show the truck for 109k or under MSRP but typical scammer dealer.
They want 161,225 for the truck!
If one does chat they pull you in saying yes 109k is accurate. That changes when you give them enough info to get a salesman to contact you. They really pushed trying to get my phone number. I refused to give it but this was done by email.

Randy,

Currently we are asking $161,225 on the Raptor R. It should be here the last week of December or the first week of January! Interested?

Thanks,

Steven

Edit add: Shortly after I told them what I thought for false advertising they pulled the listing! LOL

Just remember from one of his previous posts he could buy most peoples lives on here with ‘singles’ so he’s definitely a big deal. Most people that make it a habit of bragging about money or the size of their **** are the ones that don’t even have enough in their pants to keep a woman faithful…… money or **** lol. Just let him keep beating his own drum.
