Thats The one Car/truck? That I have much to be thankful for!
In 2004 I went with a friend to the Car Auction in Manheim, PA this is a dealer's only auction.
I went there looking for a Toyota 4 x 4 pickup (don't freaking ask me why)..
Well the Toyota 4 x 4s were going for $1200 to $1600 less than retail so I did the no f-ing way on that.
So we figure well we are here lets go watch the rest of the auction and see what the real cars are selling at.
We went over by the high line run and they were running several BMW Financial in early off lease cars all of them were Mercedes Benz.
my friend got hot for a sweet silver AMG CLK and bidded like hell for it and got it.
Then the SL models started rolling in followed by SLK models.
Over the speaker came a sexxy sounding voice of a woman saying "Guys Guys! let me have your attention over here"
There standing on a platform was this tall fake blonde (and those had to be fake tits) taking off a white bathrobe wearing a little very brite green micro bikini and high heeled shoes.
Behind her was a large something covered with a light blue canvas tarp.
She was standing there with her hand behind her back and said "Now guys I am going to take it all off!" well don't cha know used car dealers are all a pile of shit so they all went running over there to see this!
The auction line did not stop... that left about 8 to 10 of us standing there to bid on the cars.
Well in came this real cool looking 2000 SLK 230 Kompressor with 8k miles black on black 5 speed manual and I just started the OMG looky at that!
So I started bidding on it not really expecting to go for less than 23k to 26k
it hit 11k and the auctioner repeated that number 2x I bidded 12k on it and the car drove right off the floor at that time and I turned to my buddy and asked what happend? he told me it "closed" and is waiting sale approval.
Over where the fake blonde was (the one with the fake tits) we heard a collective groan or some kind of noise of disapointment the woman pulled a rope behind her back and the cover came off the Chevy ssr truck and yada yada....
Meanwhile a guy dressed up in a 3 piece suit came over to me and told me BMW Financial would like to make a offer on the sale with theses requirements to make the sale. 1. The car will be sold as is. 2. pay bmw financial a $500 below book close out fee and that would be it.
Well here is my First Mercedes Benz Car for $12500.00 plus the auction fees
Thanks too the Fake Blonde with Fake Tits and what she was there to show.
I still have the car and Since then I fell for a SLK 320 that I really lost my ass on (well sorta)
