Vicki saw this truck at Louisville, but they "wouldn't talk with her because she is a girl", so she walked away. She also saw it on the road yesterday.

What do you think for $55k?

For a little more than a new one from the big 3, or 4 or 5, you could have that one. Would make a great daily driver, but who would want to drive it daily. The fear of it being stolen, or hit would stop me.

Buy it to take to shows, you might as well buy a new Mustang, and take it. You might have two trucks in the same show that are identical. Wouldn't that be sweet? Might as well wear the same shirt as your wife. Laughing

But, I do like it.

Well 10k down and picker up (no pun intnded) Laughing in 2008..
That should give you enuff time to get a paper route and 3 jobs to buy one Question Actually for what your getting its not a bad price. Hell I got over 35k in the coupe plus my time. Why dont you start scrounging parts now then when you take delivery you could put it back stock Exclamation Idea I saw the post on the hamb and bobk is right something looks out of place but im leaning more towards the grille than the windshield but that needs work also.

[quote="Slick 50"]Vicki saw this truck at Louisville, but they "wouldn't talk with her because she is a girl", so she walked away.

It's amazing in this day and age this happens. Any salesperson who turns his back on any potential customer, regardless of sex, race, etc. is a moron.


Years ago when I was selling boats I sold a 37 foot sport fisherman to a lady, and she told me "do you know why I came back and bought the boat from you? It's because you didn't treat me like a dumb female. You took the time to discuss things like the engines, instrumentation, etc. rather than blowing me off." She went on to tell me the last saleman kept asking her if she wanted the "blue one or the red one.", and treated her like a child.

Turns out this woman flew her own plane, is a Doctor, and owns a resort in the Bahamas. So much for being a dumb woman.

Interesting truck. For the $55,000, I will build you one. You pick the color.

My first impression was that thereís a huge potential for a scam here. Dude takes $10,000 from 1000 people, stashes the million bucks, and files bankruptcy. Nobody gets a truck and heís liviní large on an island in the Carribean. But I looked into it a little and the $10K goes into an escrow account and you can get it back anytime including whatever interest it has accrued. Thereís a story about Southern Motor Company on Edmunds website.

I couldnít afford one but I think the trucks are cool and Iíd like to see the company make a go of it. Thereís a lot of car people out there that have spent their lives in jobs where they didnít have time to learn much about mechanical things but they did spend their time making money. Now they can afford to enjoy life. That truck isnít so flashy that itís like buying a Z06, a Saleen, or a Boxter. Itís a truck that still looks like a truckÖ..but drives like a new car.

Making a car that meets all of the government standards, backing it with a 3 year warranty, and still make a profit is a pretty big bite to chew but if they can pull it off it will be a true American success story. I kind of have my doubts tho. I think the time is right but theyíd sure better start paying attention to women customers. Lotís of purse strings are held by them and they like trucks too.

You guys did see that they are planning to put Ford engines in them didn't ya? Burn Out

Tony. you are confusing complex and complexion. Not that either of those that Vance has is any good at all.

I like most of it. I don't see that the market will be that great for them. As has been said before the target seems to be those that have the income but not the time or tools to build it themselves.

I actually like the grill it looks to be part 46-47 chevy passenger car. I have never likes the stock truck grills in this model of truck. I don't like the windshield. That was something about the 54-55 1st series that I did not like at all. It looks even worse chopped.

I will be posting more on this in a little while at http://www.roddingroundtable.com/index.php so watch out for it there.
