    No, an F250 Lariat crew cab with a 6.7L.

    At 70K with financing at 8% plus extended warranty crap I suppose that’s possible.

    In 10 years if he would have held on to his old car or truck and put that $1200 for 72 months into a S&P 500 fund it would be worth $300.000.00 to $420,000.00.

    Drivers typically aren't the most mathematically savvy folks...

    It's not a good site for people who are starting out that's for sure. It's certainly more of a site for experienced mid career and almost end of career LTL drivers. It's defiantly an experienced drivers site that is for sure.

    You’re right. It’s got it’s own culture and cliques and I happen to enjoy it right much. There’s some meat and potato information in there, you just have to dig through a bunch of inside jokes to get to it. It’s an acquired taste and it just gets better with time.
     
    SevynsUp, Speedy356 and Mike2633 Thank this.

    I always kind of liked trucking boards because it is a really good site for inside baseball info, that is for sure, but new people starting out and people who don't follow this business it's not the place for them. It is not an entry level forum. Although I can get lost on there it is good reading if your into the industry and truck stuff. I like reading the guys on the XPO forum argue with each other.
     
    Speedy356, JadeLove and jmz Thank this.
