Frank, I did not read the entire thread however in case someone didn't mention it one more deciding factor on which vehicle you should buy would be how you need to present yourself to your customers. I guess that would be determined to whom and what you are selling.
If you were selling farm equipment you could possibly be more appreciated showing up in a nice crew cab pickup. If you were selling IT a "yuppie" looking car. Or for instance if you were selling perfume then they use those pink cars.
Just joking about the perfume but you get the idea.
You have to maintain the proper appearance for your clients. (If they are going to see your ride.)

I don't know how much what i drive up in will affect sales, likely little to none, not cold calling type of sales, more relationship building with a handful of key accounts.

Might only avg 18mpg, but...

I have no problem buying/dealing with sales guys in high end cars. If they're willing to hustle enough to afford it, then they'll hustle to keep you happy & take care of you.
