Are you guys seeing this?

Used car market going down?

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-0...rash-most-2008

I'm always on the lookout for a better van for my tiny fleet,but I am not seeing anything resembling a buyers market. Just lots of way-over-my-budget vehicles. Even wouldn't mind finding a somewhat newer F series than my current 250 diesel,a 97,but damn,they seem to want well north of five figures even for old ones.

My buddy works at a car dealer in used cars. He has a 2016 Chevy 2500 van with ladder racks bins and bulkhead for $24,000

Here trucks are always an exception. You have to go out of state to get a decent deal.

Well,

6 months ago I had a hard time getting a call back on a diesel Ram 1500. Now I have them cold calling me on diesel 2500s with crazy low prices.
