Is there a main database a dealer can access on a customer shopping?

Can a dealer see if I've been at another dealer and how much was offered on a trade,new truck,fianceing,etc.? Is there a main data base they can access with the info?

I don't think so. Maybe Carmax can do that but I don't think independent dealers do.
Now answer this: is there a website where Joe Blow can search nationwide for any leftover 2007 Super Duties? Because they're getting hard to find locally.

Dealers are not going to share that kind of info with other dealers. They are all independant businesses competing with each other. That would be like the Green Bay Packers giving the Cowboys a copy of their playbook. Ain't gonna happen!

None that I know of. But there is one that any qualified Ford dealerperson can access.

So the answer seems obvious: Hook up with a good experienced Ford dealerperson and put him to work. If you don't know any, I can name 4 off the top of my head: Bobby Williams near LA, Cochise Willis near Houston, and my nephew Vance Lane in Odessa (those 3 are all fleet managers at big dealerships). Plus the dealer himself, Danny Ireton at my local itty bitty Ford house in Stanton. If you would like contact info for any of those guys, holler back.

My Sierra Blanca (Spanish for White Mountain) in the sig pic was a great pickup for 11.5 years. I sold it several years ago. I drove a hand-me-down 2003 F-150 SuperCrew 4.6L 2V for a while, but it was unacceptable for towing more than a rowboat. Replacement is a 2012 F-150 EcoBoost SuperCrew Lariat that tows my 5,000-pound TT like a dream. Replaced the 2012 with a 2019 F-150 3.5L EcoBoost with max tow.

Thanks Smokey. Nothing serious, I'm just kickin' tires. Now that I think about it, I have Cochise's contact info.

Funny...I saw it twice..good movie but can't remember that part..If I was to guess he wasn't doing anything..

Now ya got me going to the store to rent it. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif[/img]

I think my two dealers around here seem like that to me now. A big joke. I can't seem to get them to give a firm price or call me back. I'm not good at handleing them I think..There too sharp...
