Subject: Your New Vehicle from the Internet Sales Team at Thompson's Toyota in Placerville...
It's Cooper, I am one of two Direct Sales Manager's for Thompson's Toyota in Placerville, Ca. In a nut shell, the answer is no. We can have a paintshop repaint the vehicle for you if money is no object then we can get it to a factory level paint job, but you can not get it from the factory. Let us know how we can help.
You can simply reply to this email or call me direct at 530-417-6520 to set an appointment or if you have any questions. If I am not available, or it ends up being on one of my days off...Wednesday or Thursday...please make sure you ask for my partner Tony Biondi. We work as a team so there are no conflicts and one of us is always here.
Direct Sales Manager
In that case, Mr. Cooper, I will probably end up finding a good (very clean) second-hand Toyota truck as a Tacoma (2005 or later), Tundra or even an older T100 4x4 and taking the rig to my favorite body shop on the west coast in California FOR THE SPECIAL CHARTREUSE TREATMENT. I also have a few aftermarket body graphics in mind. I have just heard that factory paint is often inferior to independent shop paint anyway. I will not pay over $15,000 for any used truck from a dealer or private seller (unless, maybe somebody had one in a nice one-off custom solid color for sale as chartreuse, blaze orange or canary yellow). I have also been told to shun aftermarket paint jobs set up by car dealerships.
Most guys won't probably pay a fortune for a brand new truck and another fortune for a mere color change on top of that.
If you ever were to get such a truck in your used truck fleet as I may be interested in, please give me a holler. I am looking at over the coming year for a truck. No immediate hurry.
I want a 4x4 model that is preferably an access cab (or a double cab, maybe) and with factory air (in good working order) as included equipment as I live in HOT Sacramento. I don't really need any fancy luxury items as leather, backup cameras or Bluetooth. I would rather invest in a simple, utilitarian truck with cool paint.
Since I plan aftermarket custom paint anyway, my used truck need not have perfect original paint but the vehicle should be rust-free and premium quality otherwise and with good interior and undented body. I do, however, want a truck with original silver, grey, white or black paint to start with as the inside of the engine compartment will stay the original color and that will go well with my aftermarket paint job.
Thanks for your reply just the same.
