Default Now This Is How You Sell

Yesterday I was presented with the best sales tactics EVER by a used car salesman. I notice a 95' Buick Roadmaster with a trailor hitch from the road and decide to stop at the dealor to test drive it. So I go in and talk to the salesman. He so happens to be the owner and we head out to look at the car. When I ask to drive it he says he forgot the keys and runs in to get them. All of a sudden I see this super good looking woman walking in my direction. Early 20s, bruenette, totally Swedish decent walks up and indroduces her self to me. Turns out she is his neice. Now never in my life has the salesperson come to ride along on a used car test drive. Heck even with a bran new GXP the salesman just handed me the keys. But she just plops in the beast and comes along for the ride. Now this is how you sell cars! You see a guy coming to test a car and send a good looking woman to go along for the test drive so the guy can't pay attention to the way the car is acting. It works! I drove it for 5 miles and have no clue how the car ran or drove whatsoever!!

Agreed! Then she can borrow the car from her relative.

Do you call it "test drive" if most of the "test" was in the back seat
