Default Treated like gold!

Today me and a friend who is 17 years old as well go into the Pontiac Dealership in Red Deer. Were lookin at a GTP, when a sales clerk comes up and asks us if we have any questions..I say, Is this dealership getting any Bonneville GXP'*..he says yep, i asked when, he says come with me, he finds out that they will be here in 3 weeks. Im lik okay sweet, i have an SSEi my self, and im really intrested in looking at the GXP, he then asks me for my phone number and my name which he writes down, he gives me his card and tells me as soon as they come in he will phone me right away! LOL
Talk about awesome!
......i hope he doesn't think im buying one...
lol
Maybe my dad will go on a 24 HR test drive with it, ill take lots of pics, and vids if so!

Of course he wants you to buy it! He'* a salesman, isn't he? I never go to dealerships during businesses hours cause they really do breathe right down your neck

im surprised he was that nice considering you are 17, usually they wont pay attention to you knowing that you dont have the $$$ to buy the car.

true but in this day and age it'* nothing for most wealthy parents to buy their kid an expensive ride. I am always amazed what people will put their kids in for a 1st car.

I had a salesman take my cell number when I took a test drive of an SSEi. Of course I wasn't gonna buy it, but he didn't know!

chances are if they can afford the porche they can afford the insurance. They probably make the kid a primary driver on a different car (what we do)

True gotta point, but geez, a freeking Porsche. I had a Porsch once. I went to Change the oil, the filter was like 35 bux, straight 50 weight oil. Then I wanted new shocks/struts, 800 bux apiece.! Holy crap! Ran like a bat out of hell, but I couldn't afford all that! So, so long Porsche, hello Bonny!
