Well, with gas prices being crazy, it seems that dealerships can't sell their giant trucks-so right now they are a steal of a deal! And I am quite proud to say, that through some wheeling and dealing, we were able to get Bill a brand new 2008 Toyota Tundra fully loaded double cab, off road 4x4 for a couple thousand more than used '07 Tundras without as many options and tons of miles were selling for...CRAZY! And, compared to what the trucks were selling for last year, we ended up with over 10,000 dollars off the price...AMAZING!
So, Bill has a new toy to drive on weekends when he is around AND we have a second car (ahem, truck) for when we fly back and forth from Mobile, Alabama to home here in North Carolina.
The very best part? We had enough saved to put a good down payment, so we are hoping we can have the truck completely paid off in 3 years. Since the only other debt we have is the house, in this rare case, it seemed silly to not jump on the opportunity to get Bill the truck he's has always wanted. And let me just share that Little Dude LOVES pretending to drive it. He and Bill will sit in it forever playing with gadgets.
It must be a guy thing.
But gosh, I am so happy for my hard working hubby to get his "man truck".
