So I have been on this site for a month or so and figured I throw up some pics and tell my story.
So 3 months ago I had no intention of getting a new car. I had an old ford truck that I had modded pretty extensively and was happy driving it till it fell apart. So I was out with the gf at a nice place for dinner with the truck parked outside. A guy comes up to me during dinner and asked if the blue truck was mine. I said yes and he told me he just hit it and "rubbed off some paint". We go out to look at it.
Now the poor kid is maybe 17 and shaking he is so nervous. We go look at it and the whole rear quarter panel is f'ed up. Insurance info is exchanged. Later that night he emails me and says he is going to pay cash to have it fixed. I get the quote from my mechanic and send it to the dude. He cuts a check for it plus money for the rental car. About $5k. Now I think to myself, self, I wonder what this old truck is worth as is and if I fix it.
I get a couple quotes and its worth $7k as is and $8 if I fix it. No brainer not to fix it. Just for shits and giggles I go to the Ram dealership and look around. I see this guy
Now I had seen the Rams on the road and I love the aggressive front end and it is easily the best looking truck out there. So I start looking around thinking its the end of the year and maybe they are looking to get rid of the 2014's and maybe I can get a good deal.
I had heard of incredibly pushy salesmen but never experienced it. Holy crap I wanted to punch this guy in the freaking neck. How many times did I have to say "I dont want to talk about monthly payments, just give me a final number". 7. 7 times. And he didnt even know what he was selling. I asked question I knew the answer to and he got them wrong. Such as "is it a true dual exhaust?"
"Really? Are you sure"
"If you can show me the two mufflers I will pay you full price"
So enough venting, long story short is I ended up getting a stupid good price since they were desperate to get rid of it.
