Clash for the TITAN

Yep, so I finally got it. The truck that I have been wanting for the longest time. Okay, maybe it isn't exactly what I wanted, but I am happy with the compromise.

About 4 years ago, I worked at a Toyota dealership and, ever since, have wanted a Toyota Tundra. BEAUTIFUL least it was until Toyota decided to change the body style a few years back. So the other truck that I have had my eyes on was the Nissan Titan. And looky there, it's a Titan. And to be perfectly honest, this truck was a steal!! But it by no means was a simple purchase......too many obstacles to overcome. But I did overcome, and now that BEAUTIFUL Titan is sitting in my driveway (not in my garage, because its too big!!).

The title of my blog is a little misleading. There was a clash......two actually. But I won't bore you with the gruesome details of the purchase. But I will tell you, I put an offer down on the truck, and when they didn't take it, my wife made me walk away......even though it was still a stellar deal. And she put up with me getting mad when she wouldn't let me go back to get it......but 1 1/2 weeks later the dealership called me back and told me to come get the truck at my offer and so I did.

No, its not a NEW truck (2004 with 38,000 miles).....but new enough for me. And I think I will be content with it for least until the gas prices go up another dollar or so.

Anyway, I know I haven't written on this for a while and those that did read probably have given up on me.....but I wanted to brag and this seemed as good a place as any to do so.

If ya'll do want the details about the truck, post a comment and then maybe I'll include it in my next posting......and I promise it will be sooner than this one came!!
