Let's take some wagers. How many months does everyone think they can go without saying best ever. I'm going to say 2 months, and I bet $5 e-dollars. They'll find some way to put a positive spin on December, just wait and see.

beat me to it! tundra sure is dropping!

And with HUGE spiffs, too. I believe I saw an ad for 0% plus $3k off on Tundras. Probably more like $5k off after haggling.
