|My Story: This
was my first new car. I purchased it after looking for over a year
for a new car. I was 18 and wanted something sporty. I could
only affort $16K for a new car. I looked at many different cars like
a MR2, Monte Carlo SS, Mustang, Camero Z28. I happened upon a new
white V6 firebird that has some minor mostly cosmetic modifications.
I looked at this car for two weeks and on a Friday night my Dad and I went
to buy this beauty. I had a cashiers check in my pocket for $6K as
a downpayment and I was going to finance the rest. Well the nice
friendly dealer suddently turned his tune when I made an offer of $2k off
sticker. He stated he could get sticker for this car, and that I
should go buy a Ugo since that was obviously all I could afford.
My Dad and I were shown the door before we knew what had happened.
Understand I did not look at Trans Ams because they were over what I could
afford. The next day my Dad called and said "lets just go looking".
I didn't really feel like going, but off we went. We pulled into
this small dealer with at most 10 cars for sale 2 of them new Trans Ams.
One was Blue without Ts and this kwel red. I took a look at the sticker
and started to walk away, but the friendly salesman handed me the keys
and a Shell Credit card and said with a smile "It needs gas, go fill it
up I'll keep your dad hostage until you get back." I started it up
and peeled the tires pulling out. This car had 4 miles on it.
I filled it up with Super and drove it to show my Mom who was working just
a few miles away. I went back to the dealer and I didn't even have
to say anything he just made me a great deal on the price and my new Ugo
was a V8 Trans Am. I drove this car everyday for 14 years.
I now own a new 2000 TA.
