Re: Some Good truckin news:
We are so busy at work that I really don't have enough hours in the day and it's not just me.
A guy flew in from CA yesterday and bought a used truck.
A guy drove up from S. TX today and paid cash for a used truck. Dropped the truck off w/ the shop for at least $10K worth of fenders and wetkit and flat said he didn't care what the price was. Of course we will treat him fairly but what a change.
I'm dropping off a new truck tomorrow w/ a customer, he is paying for one I dropped off last week and this one cash, and he is signing papers to order 6 more. I told him the truth, that the factory has raised prices from just last month because they have so many orders. He didn't even blink and is paying it.
I have another 15 or so on order for various guys. It's only mid February guys.
Compare that to the fact that our entire dealership only sold like 9 trucks in '08.
Certain segments are still very weak, homebuilding in particular. But as a whole trucking is back in a HUGE way.
We have 2 trailer sales guys as well and it's nuts over there. They usually sell 1 or 2 at a time. Well one guy has a 90 trailer order and the trailer factory is saying they can't even build them until late '12 at the earliest because order intake is so high.
