Dealer, used car portion.

Looked around for a couple of months, in the papers, ebay, etc, and then saw it on the lot. (on the elevated podium)

Went in not expecting to buy it, bu to use it in my quest of seeing what I should expect for prices. Walked out 2 hours later, with the car.

It'* much more fun to buy a car when you don't need it, so you can work them. I used the "looks nice, maybe I'll be back later" at least three times. Then low balled them, just to get out of there. They balked, but didn't say no, so I decided to stay and play for a while.

94 SSE with Sizzle is on a distinguished road

I was driving a 90 454SS, that had upwards of 180,000 on it and was starting to break me up financially. I always liked Bonnies so I started a search for the perfect one for me. After about 2 months a dealer called said they got a sharp "SE" JUST IN, LOW MILES LOADED ETC. I bought it sight unseen, cause I knew from the description it was a SSE. I got it for a GREAT price. When I went to pick it up, dude tried to renig on the deal, said it'* an SSE, he can't let it go for that, yada,yada,..I said kiss my ***, where'* my car!
