I'd take a pic of the actual car but right now, I have a loaner. My wife gave me the go-ahead today to get a new vehicle. Since I already did my shopping around, I was able to go in and if the price was right, get what I wanted. And I did. Earlier this week, my wife showed interest in the cars I was looking at. Though I get GM employee discount, I was more excited about the Dodge Calibur and would get it for the same cost as the discounted GMs I was looking at. Then Thursday, she put an abrupt stop to my car shopping. We barely talked at all friday and this morning until she found out some information on going back to school. Because it was different from the original plan, she said I can go ahead and she trusts me. Only one stipulation, the car cannot be red, yellow, or orange. At the dealership, they had the car I wanted optionwise. Problem, it was red or orange. We had 2 options, find the one I wanted or upgrade one of the base models with power options and cruise control. Well cruise wouldn't be avaliable for upgrade for a month or so. So we searched around and found a silver one. I was amused at this because all the cars I have had except my current one have been silver. Next was cost. The cost of the car was easily worked out, the trade in was another story. They were offering practically nothing for my car. A measly 1500 for the upgraded 1998 Cutlass fully loaded. I was expecting at least 3G. They made their points, I made mine. We settled at $2100. This with my downpayment put me EXACTLY at the monthly payment I wanted. Now the kicker was that for the sale to count for today, I needed to drive off the lot today. So I got a temporary one. In order to have some fun and get back at my wife, the salesman and I decided my temporary one would be, of course, red. Well my wife called to find out how i was faring. I of course lied and said it was a no go and I'd be there to pick her up. First i got the giggly "You son of a bitch! You got a new car. I can't believe you" All i nthe funny laughing way. Then I said "So how do you like the color?" Well let me tell you, the look I got about the color would burn through lead. Of course i was off the hook when I told her why but it was still a good enough payback for the day plus long argument from earlier. So yea, I'm extatic and tomorrow I'll be cruising around all friggin day. And of course real car pics when I actually get it.
