im on the new truck look out again


stopped at the dodge dealer yesterday... and there it was... my truck. pearl silver... in all its glory, right in the middle of the lot... many different colors of the one i want but this one was smack in the middle...

picture it...

2008, dodge ram 2500 diesel...

big horn edition.

six speed manual.

factory eight inch lift...

thirty six inch tires, over sized breaks, running boards, sun roof...

pearl silver...

fifty eight thousand dollars.





so i talked with the first sales shark, err... sales associate to come out of the building.

"is this price right?" i ask.
"yeah, its right." he said.
"i don't want to pay 10,000 for this lift kit and tires, that's bullshit. whats your best deal?"
"well we have a deal right now on these trucks. dodge is giving an 18,000 rebate."
"nice, but i want more. i was talking with a dude here several months ago and he said you guys are trying to get rid of these. he was fighting Toyota for my business. he offered me 600 dollars below invoice. can you compete with that?"
"yeah, i can. i can prolly knock off up to 23,000 dollars. the owner is coming in later this afternoon."

we go into the building and i get his card, blah, blah, blah... and he said he was going to call me back. he didn't. must not like money. but with my truck as a trade in and some serious down payment money, i should be rolling in a new truck within the month... wish me luck again... on the dream truck.

Seriously, man, you could probably get a really sweet deal right now if you don't let them off the hook.

Good luck!

Much love,

Suzanne....don't be angry. It was fun...wasn't it?. You admitted you laughed and laughing is good.

Suzanne said...

Hunter,

Honey, I'm not angry. All in fun, all in fun my good man. Hilarious. I had an absolute blast. You guys/gals kicked my ass. It's too funny. And then to try to kick it more. You suck!!! But nope, still laughing. I had the time of my life. I love you all and thanks for the ride. It really was hilarious. And most of all, it nice to know the answer. There is a calm that comes with knowing. I love you my darling friend.

XO

catscratch said...

Dude.....

A Dodge???

WTF????

I roll in my Ford.

Mr. Shife said...

Sweet ride. Luck wished upon you.

Suzanne said...

Sweet ride my ass. I was just at Robyn's and posted after you, but Blogger indicated I posted before you. WTF!!! I commented about your comment!!! Life, it's so complicated. I'm not having such a sweet ride. Why?

Hi Mr. Shife!

XO

MJ said...

I could drive that with my uterus tied behind my back.

kylie said...

wish you luck?

well, maybe we are

but you owe us

cheers

just bob said...

Can you negotiate my next car deal?

Suzanne said...

Can you fix my car? Remember that fiasco a few months back? Well, turns out the car is leaking oil and the Mercedes repair shop told us the engine repair will cost more than the car is worth. They're the one's who looked at the car before we bought it and told us to buy it. Now we're being told to sell it within six months. Hummmmmmm. Zack, I swear to God, sometimes I just want to scream. I gotta go. I'm late to the park, but had to check my bank account before getting on Hwy 80. I accidently ended up here. How? I don't know, probably delusional after seeing my balance.

Have a great Friday. It's Friday. Right?

XO ;)

suz, thanks but i get what i want because i work for it...

hntr and suz, take it outside eh?

catscratch, here in toyota country ive got a lot of friends that roll in fords. roll onto flatdeck tow trucks that is. ive got a few good stories of fords... at the company i work for we were all about fords and now we cant even get rid of them.

mr.shife, thanks man! i went back by today and started to fill out some of the paper work.

mj, im sure there are few folks here that would drive your uterus from behind your back! aaahahhahahahaa....

kylie! thanks... (hands over twenty dollar bill)

bob, its all about not really wanting the car. its about the dealer wanting you to have the car.

suz, they were right on both accounts. a used mbenz is always going to be worth the same amount. so if you put money into it, it will only ever be worth that much... its a love hate relationship. keep the car, fix the leak and thin your wallet. or buy a new truck, the more lug nuts the better.

she she... giving me funny links isnt commenting... NICE TRY THOUGH!

shelaghayan said...

I have nothing to say about a truck, ZackAttack. NADA. I fouund some good old emails from a traumatic experience, though and posted that shit. You will commiserate.

catscratch said...

Well, crap.

Suzanne said...

Hunter, we've been told to take it outside. Hi honey. It's a little chilly out here. Want to go to Sarbucks?

Walker said...

THis is the best time to wrangle a deal out of these bloodsuckers especially with sales down.

INNER VOICES said...

she she... arghhhh, fucking credit companies... americaa credit companies in particular... wanna buy a foriegn truck? no problem! cause if we have to repo that bitch, its worth something, buy american, nope! cause the loan is worth more than the truck..default on the loan and they cant even make their money back....

scratch, sorry i just rerad the comment and fords have done their work and then some round here... wa just riding a dodge high and am just coming down...

suz? starbucks? resist corporate coffee!!!!

walker... unfortunately the government (that i dont believe in or vote for) sees fit to lay waste to the credit world that funds it and a hard working bloke myself... weve sold so much of our credit institution to foreign governments and markets we can now only buy/borrow from them!!


thabk you all for commenting and miss you mucho!!!

Suzanne said...

Hi baby. You'll be so proud. I don't frequent either Sarbucks or Starbucks!!! Stopped years ago. Got sick of spending a gazillion dollars on coffee. I now insult the planet worse and buy brown coffee filters for $2 at Trader Joe's and a huge thing of coffee at Target or WalMart and make my own damn shit. Probably wasting more energy than driving to Starbucks. It's good. Really, really good. Better than Starbucks. And I mean that. I will admit I went to Starbuck on my birthday this past August and asked for one of their gorgeous, fluffy, cold con"cock"tions. He got it wrong. Gave it to me free, then made my drink and gave that to me free too. I gave the drink I didn't want to a lovely clerk and nearly inhaled the one I wanted before I reach the car. Starbucks. Perfection!

"Big horn edition" - is this a real thing?

INNER VOICES said...

LYDIA, OH YEAH... basically it is their fancy way of saying "crome package"
