What?? Dude honestly without being a D-bag. I dont have a damn clue what your point is.

Cains name obviously doesnt change the truck in any shape or form. BUT it does make it worth more then that EXACT same truck would without him owning it.

That is all im saying.

Now unless you are trying to say that Name Value doesnt mean jack squat. Then we really have nothing to argue about right??

And again.. i really am not trying to be a D-bag. Im just having a hard time understanding what you are trying to argue here.

To the people arguing about something they know nothing about, go price a one or two year old pickup and see what you're gonna spend. Especially a base F-150 with heated seats being the highlight The only thing "big" on that truck are the atrocious wheels.

New vehicles lose 25% of their value as soon as you drive it off the lot. Doesn't matter if Cain's left slug trails on the seats it ain't worth what he's wanting. BUT, like someone said, the buyer will be a well off Velasquez fan that buys it at anywhere near that price.

The Raptor is I guess a cooler truck but it's only a halfton. You spend 44 grand on an older Ford truck and you'd have more power, offroad capability, better mileage, stereo, etc...

If Cain can make some greenbacks off a free truck than more power to him. I for one, would like to see him get a GM product. He'd be much better off

Why are people even trying to argue that Name Value adds to the price. I dont freaking get it. I learned this in the 1st grade.

Kanye West can Sign a picture and sell it for more then the EXACT same picture without his signature would.
We aren't talking about autographs and paraphernalia. We are talking about a vehicle and historically vehicles don't become more valuable because a celebrity owned them unless we are talking huge celebs, like Michael Jackson or Elvis. MMA is still somewhat of a fringe sport and Velasquez still has not even shown he is a major star or that he has any staying power, he wouldn't be the first to burn out. Celebrity vehicles only increase in value if they are huge celebs or they do something incredibly dumb in it. (OJ's Bronco for example) because that is an iconic image. Its not worth more because it was OJ's,hell if OJ had borrowed his sisters Bronco it would be worth the same.

Vehicles are big, bulky and expensive making the demand significantly lower. Besides if you buy it and drive it a year its no longer Cain velasquez's truck its your truck and nobody cares about your truck.


And Rusty I am not a big brand loyalty guy but GM are crap.

Toxic, I am honestly hurt and insulted by the GM is crap comment

Why would you say such things? GM has made the baddest engines and most bitchin looking trucks for the last 60 years.

The small block chevy debuted in 1955 and was used in some form until the late 1990's if not later. The best v-6 besides maybe the Buick turbo v-6 was the 4.3. It was just a 350 chevy with a cylinder lopped off.

The LS series engines are capable of 500hp with a cam and head swap on a junkyard shortblock. Not too mention, in a Camaro with a 6 speed they're capable of 25-26 mpg on the highway.

Did you have a bad experience with a GM or what? There has to be a reason for this aggression

Actually I had an 1986 Iroc with the 305 TPI engine and I loved it. I just dislike the way most chev vehicles drive, they feel loose and sloppy. I also work in the oil field were vehicles take alot of abuse and the front suspension/steering on GM's just do not hold up at all.

I am extremely relieved by the IROC comment I'm guessing you're experience with sloppy driving GM's has to do with the fact that they are oil rig trucks. Maybe just high mileage vehicles???

I've dealt with those oil field guys for the better part of seven years and no brand of truck stands up to that kind of abuse. If a truck is a diesel, even worse. The weight of those things will wear out any and all front suspensions.

I have a GM vehicle that's 39 years old that I've had to 140 plus MPH with no front end work and felt as safe as you could expect at that speed

GM is a great brand, I just hope you come to the same conclusion sooner rather than later
