    damn people that buy cars here at my dealership would love to be here for just 3 hours. the average time a customer spends in here while buying a new vehicle is close to 10 hours

No problems yet, i change the oil every 2500 milles with Mobil 1 synthetic. only thing i had go bad on me was the power steering rack and I replaced that. Still runs strong!

    I figured it was showroom mileage from moving her around in different types of display settings.. A brand new 35th would never have sat outside.. I go to Gatto Cycle shop to chew the fat with the owner once in a while.. There are Motorcycles in the showrom with 10-20 showroom miles from being moved around here and there to make room for other bikes and so forth.. Many times vehicles in showrooms don't have gas in them so they actually push then from place to place..

    My 01 had ~24kish iirc when we bought it.. That was sorta the same look we got when we bought her too.. We walked in (after researching it on the web) a sales men walks up and says, "can I help you folks with something?" I said I'll take this Blue 01 Camaro you've got here.. To which he replied, " okay lets go inside and start the financial paper work and I'll get the keys so you can test drive it.." I said, how about you just go get the keys I'll be writing a check for the entire amount if it's to our liking.. I don't think I've even seen a salesmen move so fast..

    That's funny you mention that. My test drive was "very" limited as she had about 1/16 tank full of gas and the salesman wanted me to hurry up and get her back once I ripped through the gears once

    something about safety I believe is why they keep little to no gas in them.. Think of the fumes if you've got ten cars with over 10 gallons of gas in each sittin' in one room.. Maybe that's why car salesmen always seem high..

    Sadly now demodded :(

    I got the 02 in Apr 05 with just over 29k on the clock. I traded the dealership my 96 Z28 vert and took the car home that night. I came back the next day with a cashiers check for $7k and the title to the 96.

    As you can see by an earlier post I've put only 20k miles on the 02 over the last 5-1/2 years.

    I have a small family business nothing over the top tho.. Mostly light duty fabrication and so forth. Became a plumber in my early 20's..

    I would be doing even better had I gone to college.. Took me as long do things the hard way (working my way up) as I takes a person to become a medical Doctor.. 5-6+ years or so..

    So stay in school! lol
