Hey Toyota let us pick the color of next years TT ('14)

Go ahead, skin it! Skin that smoke wagon and see what happens...

I'll ride in on a sunny day, Sing you a song, steal your heart away Like a cowboy Hang my hat like I'm here for awhile Kick off my boots and drive you wild Like a cowboy Well baby you know I can't stay long You wake up, I'll be gone Until then I'll hold on Like a cowboy

Those FJ's look like a bag of Skittles exploded!

I think the FJ should come in 10 different shades of Iceburg...

Re: When will Toyota announce the 2014 FJ?

Here's a hypothetical question: If there's no 2014 FJ Cruiser, meaning that If for some stupid reason they decide to discontinue the FJ, would prices go down?

If so, by how much?

Yes, I know, it was discontinued in 2007. In fact the FJ Cruiser never went into production. It was never sold. All those vehicles you're driving are manifestations of your imagination. Kidding aside, will prices fall if there's no 2014 FJ?

Specialty cars that are discontinued and then not replaced tend to maintain their value very well. For example, ever shopped for an Acura NSX or a '94+ Toyota Supra? The prices on them are nuts, because they haven't been overshadowed by newer cars.

That's not to say that the FJ will hold its value like a NSX or a Supra, but for as well as the FJ's already hold their value, I imagine the impact to discontinuing them would have a positive impact on their value in the used market.

Surely there are crappy cars that never should have been made (Pontiac Aztec?), but I wouldn't lump the FJ in with the Aztec or others like it.

I remember every radio station and sweepstakes TRYING to give those eyesores away. I surfed their forum once out of curiosity and its a sad place just like the Can-Am Spyder forums.

Your theory holds water for enthusiasts cars. People would pay less if there was a 2014 Supra on the horizon

What's funny is that I also have a Honda S2000, and when the Scion FR-S / Subaru BRZ came out I looked at the specs and thought...why would I spend $25K on one of these when I can get a decent one-owner low-miles convertible S2000 with more horsepower for $5-7K less?

I do think brand has something to do with it too, if the FJ went away the mall crawler types might switch to Jeeps but there's a healthy number of "I'll never own (another) Jeep" people who would value the FJ enough to try to find one.
