Thanks lam6440! I looked that one up RIGHT after you sent it. Called the dealership a couple of times over a half an hour and got no answer. That was strange. Then I did get someone on the phone and they said they were switching to another phone and hung up on me. Then I called and they couldn't figure out who I talked to.... about 3 minutes of hold time and a new gy comes on the phone with a heavy Italian accent. I told them it was a Latino sounding guy... more hold time, then a totally different guy comes on. Just crazy stuff
They sent me the info on the car, it looks beautiful.
So what else happened yesterday? Almost went to FL to get this car *today*. Did the pricing research, the flight research, got a car inspection person on the phone ready to check it first thing this morning. Then after all that last night called the dealer back and let him know I had someone lined up to inspect the car and I'd be landing around 1pm. Oh boy did it start...
"Don't waste YOUR MONEY!" "DON"T WASTE YOUR MONEY!" BLah blah blah. It's a long story, but he said I could have a friend look at the car, but not one of the independent car inspection folks. Then I said "Ok, so not an independent car inspection service, what about a mechanic." THen it got even more weird, "no no no," he says "you come and you're gonna love the car. don't WASTE YOUR MONEY on these car checking companies. they have to protect their liability! save the money and that money you can use to fly back if you don't like the car."
Wasted a bunch of time. Here's the link to the ebay auction. Looks like there is schill bidding going on as well: one of the feedbacks on this guy is about that, and all of the bidders are "private"...
Shame, beautiful looking thing!
