11/2005 AFTER MANY OF HOURS SURFING I AM RE-POSTING THIS TOPIC CAUSE IT WAS THE FUNNIEST OF 2002. IF YOU WANT TO LAUGH FOR HOURS READ THE WHOLE THING (MIGHT TAKE YOU AWHILE) ITS DEF. WORTH IT. I HOPE YOU ENJOY






There was an add in Newsday this week for a 97 cougar 550 with reverse with 200 miles... The guy was asking a mear $5,000.00 thats correct 5 big ones... So i waited a week and decided "hopefully this guy has figured out the sleds only worth half of that" So i ring him up tonight and speak to this lady... she was very nice and i explained to her that a 2003 ZL 550 is 5 big ones out the door... she agrees and says "people have been telling me that" I go on to say that high retail on the machine is $2200 and i think $2600 would be a more then fair price for the machine cash. She replies "well for 2600 i think i will keep it" i say no problem thank you for your time... and then it gets good.

Happy husband gets on the phone hehehe and it is obvious that he has no clue what he is talking about. He starts on a rampage... "The add said 5000 dollars not 2600 you beepin moron... if you want a sled for 2600 dollars then you should go to the beepin junkyard you cheap bas##rd. What kind of dumb ( ) )hole are you... why are you calling you beepin etc...

I listened for awhile and laughed afterwards i cant believe people where im from they have no idea

Hey Powderboy, what is the phone number, I think a bunch of us should call him up and toy with him.

I already thought of that.... One of my friends called last night and told him he would offer him 1200 cash and that it was a good deal... he didnt even get yelled at... the guy just hung up. Maybe he lost his voice yellingn at all the other people who called and didnt think $5000 was a fair price

Yeah, I would like to have that number too. You wouldn't be violating any privacy issues, since he posted it in the paper. I'd like to call him and tell him I'll take it, and play w/him for a while. I would let him know that it's not a bad price since I assume he will deliver it to me in St Louis for that price, w/a trailer.

We get that kind of stuff all the time in the car business.

Well I dont know if that is a wise idee, however all you need to do is find a copy of Newsday.. Now that i think about it you can go to Newsday.com and get classified listings for Long Island... then you guys can do whatever you want..

P.S. I want reports hehehe :blahblah:
