Same here. I'm not limping my GX470 Along. It does just fine for a low mileage example of a 2004... (only 187K on the clock as of now) Two real things I am not going to miss when I get my EV is the fill ups and just the dated, well... everything in the vehicle. Incredibly capable vehicle that has never really let me down but I'm ready to step into the 21st century.

Interestingly enough I received a call today from Vroom (as I was shopping around selling my sports car) and they made me an offer that I felt was pretty dang fair, so I bit the bullet and sold my Challenger Scat Pack. I have been following a lot of the industry trends/sales etc regarding supply chain shortages, and decided to order a Tesla Model Y AWD (no extra options). I'll get delivery of it in April (hopefully) and I'll drive that around until my Rivian is ready. I figure the Model Y will lose basically nothing on value while driving it for a year so when I go to sell or trade in for the Rivian, I'll be in a good place financially and able to secure that lovely Tax credit as well.

Still going to keep the big Lexus SUV for now as its my Daily but assuming all goes well with this transaction with Vroom, I should have a bunch of $ in my account as the down payment on the Model Y.

Has anyone else considered playing these car-shell games? I don't think I'm the only one out there.
