You are right, I guess as long as the market will allow for 50 to $60,000 trucks they will continue to rise. Now that they are getting to the point that they are a 1/3 of the cost of my home I no longer want to play... LOL I guess I 'll just take my toys and go to another sand box...
I guess the other side of it is I make decent money and can afford the vehicle. But when it costs thousands of dollars extra a year because of gov't emissions add ons the allure, for me goes away. Would love the power but for the weekend warrior camper that we are it is no longer worth it.
And yes several sects of Amish. Even with the strictest of groups, if the Church approves of what they want they can have it (cars, computer, cell phones) as long as another member of the group does not get put out or loose their place in their society. Even if they cannot "drive" the truck they buy them and will pay a driver. Around here a mini-van or club wagon owner can make good money as a driver!
