Imoressive lack of markup.
I haven't dealt with them, so I don't know what their policy is on markup. I know some dealers in Saskatchewan sell for the lowest price possible, because they know customers will haggle with them, trying to get the price down.

Here's another one:


I probably saw one of those on the road for a test drive a couple of weeks back. I'd seen it, and thought it was a full-size Bronco, but second guessed myself. We're a small town of 3,000 people, I'm surprised that we actually have two at our dealer, let alone that I've seen one (twice, now) on the road.

This usually happens a week before the blend date, the date when the body meets the frame. And we have been scheduled for next week for awhile now.

I find annoyance with the lite Bright..especially the earlier stuff..but those people are legit as you can get

If you run into them they are real nice


Same with Ian and the late Jesse Combs.



But he needs an auto with a million to 1 reduction to drive. He would not be able to drive my bronco without blowing the clutch out of it or tumbling down escalator or hell's gate.

Tools make a huge difference.. 410 gears.....36 in tires and 100 HP....drum brakes all around....sux for Moab.

If I was smart I would have gotten a nicer one to flip. I could have as almost paid for this one with that one.

You'd still make quite a bit of profit, still.

It's been hard for me to not unload my truck to carvana and places like that.. if I had a better to drive for the meantime I would of been all over it to make 7-9k.

Yeah, best case scenario I still have to put up with her edge...

We are both looking forward to this.

I do need to start getting the edge ready to go down the road tho.
