When ever someone buys the latest and greatest there is almost always a premium to pay to be the first owners. Look at the performance models on the Mustang (Boss 302, GT 350, etc), dealers were getting full sticker plus 10k more. How about the newest super duper TV, full retail. Newest phones are always at a prime price. The examples of premium prices are everywhere. After a while the prices begin to drop. The higher price makes these items an exclusive item. But if you wait a bit, the price always drop off. That's where I put the Venture, exclusive, prices are driven by supply and demand. If you ask any one who bought the latest and greatest item if they have buyers remorse, 99% of the time the answer is a BIG NO. They are happy they got to enjoy while others just wished. The joy the new owners get is hard to put a price on. I always say buy what you want and can afford, enjoy and be happy. I'm one that likes the older stuff, like me. 😁. I always keep my wife in a new vehicle so I never have to work on it, currently a 2017. I'm old school, have a 1965, 1997, 2001 and 2006. All in excellent running condition and look very good. Well the Vstar does still needs the starter clutch. So to everyone with the latest and greatest, enjoy the moment.
