    It's better to have competent salespeople. Most don't have a clue, 99% of the time they try to tell me stuff I already know is not true or they just don't have a clue at all, it's frustrating. Like you said with everything on the internet I already know EVERYTHING about what I'm looking at before I come in the door, listening to a clueless salesman doesn't help the experience.

    I'm a weirdo though, even when I was 12 years old I had stacks of Motor Trend and Car and Driver magazines etc, I didn't care too much about the unattainable super cars, posters on my wall were things like the 94 Ram, LH cars, Mustangs and I was reading comparison tests between Intrepids and Taurus etc lol. The amount of times I've been told by salesman that I know more than them or have been told by other people that I should be a car salesman is astounding lol.

    I can relate. When I was in second grade I carried around NADA books. My mom finally admitted to throwing them away because I had too many of them and she was tired of dealing with it. And during "free time" at school, most kids would play computer games. I looked at cars.

    It's a good thing I work at a dealership and don't have to deal with a salesman. Most of them would find me extremely annoying in that I don't want to deal with their presentation, if I'm there to buy a car I've already done all the research.

    Dude that's totally me. My parents would take me to car lots and let me look around as a kid. I'd get a brochure of all of them in the show room, go home, and study them. I subscribed to Motortrend, too. The game changer for me was when you could build cars online on their website. I still love features on auto sites where you can select trims of competition and compare their specs.

    So the plan is at midnight the embargo will be lifted. I think TFLtruck will have a video out at midnight where they talk about the truck (correct me if I'm wrong). What will allpar do? And 9:30 am will be when the truck rolls out on stage?

    I used to do that too, my Grandpa would always take me to car dealerships and we'd look at all the new cars. I also would collect all the brochures lol.

    When I walk into a dealership now I'm not interested in hearing anything besides whether you have what I'm looking for in stock, give me the keys, let me drive it and if I like it I'll buy it. It's that simple. It took me an hour from walking into the dealership until when I was driving out with my Ram when I bought it.

    Reminds me of when the Caliber first came out.. went to the dealer to check it out because I was a bored teenager, and the dealers were literally about a half mile away. The salesperson didn't have a clue that the speakers dropped down, that there was a flashlight in there, or the can cooler thing. In my head I was like.. "and you're the person responsible for selling this?" -- I mean, we were in a high end area, so they could make stuff up & the rich and/or old people would buy it, hook, line & sinker.

    Personally, I didn't get into cars until I realized I could, and started modding my Neon.

    9:05 Eastern is when Ram's press conference starts. There are livestreams around to watch it on as well.

    Per someone I saw in my timeline on Twitter that feature's actually functional! It shoots air around the front wheel to clean up the aerodynamics.

    I'm kind of car guy but more of a truck guy. I've been a dodge (ram) guy for a decade now. Tonight's an exciting night for me and tomorrow morning will be like christmas. Although we basically know a lot of things about the truck, it will still be exciting. I've near really invested much interest into really anything other than mopar and cars in general. Got my license and for the first few months I would go to dealerships and walk the lot. If the truck or car was unlocked I'd sit it in for a while. I really hope RAM has a good showing like Chevy did last night and I'm hoping for some big things. And the only reason I created an allpar account was to see somebody's spy shot of the DT. Was going to delete my account after the official unveiling but now I'm excited for future products and plan to stick around for some time.

    Insiders, if in fact the embargo ends after midnight, PLEASE show your friends the courtesy of staying online and spilling at least a thing or two and answering some questions. You know you're dying to, anyway. lol

    Like that three word feature we're obsessed with. XD

    Granted, idk how many people are off for the holiday tomorrow, so some may already be asleep.

    It’s a good thing my boss is going to be gone this week because when the pictures of the DT come out I’m probably going to be doing a lot of Photoshop projects in my free time at work.

    I’m sure @suzq044 can relate to that excitement.

    Super obsessed with the three word feature. I hope it's anti-gravity Bladerunner Spinner car good. Super Blammo Megatron Particle Canon good. Dr. Who Tardis good. :);)

    45 minutes-ish to go.
