Guess who called yesterday asking "By chance do you still want it?" Of course we still want it. The real question is when do you want to stop carrying costs on it?

The RC experience was quite an interesting one. It's easy enough to find the car because there is only two in the country for sale right now so if you want to look it up you can find it.

The dealer has the original window sticker on the car from 2020. There is another window sticker on the windshieldwith a different price. There is another price listed on their website, and yet another price on every other national listing.

They would not give us a final price on the car. There were two "options" that were on the inventory sheet that were not listed anywhere else. They kept making up numbers as they went along. They gave some bs excuse that they couldn't do a credit inquiry. He offered to do a retail order so we could get financing but in the end they changed their mind and said I had to use their financing at 8.9%. Then they went back and said they would discount the two "options" only if we agreed to the higher purchase price. But they would not tell us which of the four prices this was based upon. The car also needed brakes and that was agreed to but I think he tried to put the retail cost of the brake job in the price of the car... but he wouldn't say it.

For cars flying off the lots, trucks, and trailers, this car has been sitting in their inventory for 10+ months. Only one other person expressed interest and we were the only ones allowed to test drive it. Literally everyone in the whole dealership came to see it leave the lot.

Driving the 90 minutes home we laughed because the closest we came to a deal was all on their terms at some unknown price. We felt like it was a street corner card game. At one point my wife said "I'm bored and I want to go home". And this car is for her.

Dealers should make money. I'm not depriving them that. Why can't they be up front about things? Why do they have to hold you hostage, turn up the heat in the office you are sitting to make you rush through things only to find out something was added and you didn't notice it because you were hungry and dehydrated.

I like how I have introduced you guys to the feared Latino-mom chancla. Legend says that once a Latina becomes a mom, they unlock a special ability to aim and have 100% accuracy with the chancla.

It's not unique to Latin culture, at least not in my family. My Mother and Grandmother could hit you from 30 ft away with their discount store flip-flops.

Must be a southern thing. My mother would never throw footwear since then her feet would get cold.

Yeah but flip-flop doesnt sounds as cool as chancla. .



But I get what you're saying, people my age, were probably one of the last generations that have seen a fair amount of objects being thrown at us, or used on us whenever we decided to act up. Mrs. Mafia mom used wodden ladles, belts, etc my gramma used Coax Cable left from leftover construction sites when the town I grew up in started getting cable TV, tree branches, wet rope.

Not yet. They want us to come back in and talk. I said we drove 3 hours round trip + tolls the first time, spent 4 hours in your place and never came to a price. You know our trade and credit scores... give me a real number and we will talk. You don't start with I lowball, you say sticker, I come up 20K and you come back with sticker +1K because you forgot you added VIN etching and lojack.

There is such a limited market for the car in this region because... snow... and there are better cars out there that have more power for a lot less. I hope they do sell it and get what they want for it. But it seems unlikely. There's nothing to compare to determine FMV so he's using what he paid for it as a guide. We went over the carfax and other information I have line-by-line. He's playing a shell game transferrring the car between his own entities to make it look like the car is a new addition to his inventory.

If it's not sold by October they will come back again I'm sure. We left it at yes, we want it... whenever you are ready to sell it or tired of looking at it. Maybe I'm being a douche canoe and if I am... please tell me. I think we are being fair about it.
