i guess i need help at the negotiation table. i thought sticker was 43k on it. i can get the gm supplier discount $3,000 and i have $1,000 extra to put down on it. if the interest rates are still low and the dealer comes down a few grand i may be there. how are you other new classic owners doing on the deals?
I bought a Classic 07 last month for invoice minus rebate, so invoice minus $1250. I've seen some guys get better deals. Oh, well. Local sticker was $47, invoice $40ish, I paid just under $39. Truck is Xcab Long Bed, 4WD, LT3 leather, OnStar, towing, skid plate, limited slip, auto fold mirrors, duramax. I think that's all that's on it, It's loaded with all but sunroof. I paid cash, too--don't know if that had an effect or not. They didn't hassle me about a personal check, either--figured they would. Tried to use my check card to get air miles, but they wouldn't go for that. Don't blame them, it's over 2% :-) Had a good salesman--no B.S., no "dealer packs," and he worked hard to get my folding mirrors.
I agree with dogzapper. Buy the last of the tried and true old stuff before you jump in on the first of the new stuff. LTZ is a tested reliable engine. We simply do not know about the LMM yet. It MAY be as well, but we don't know. The 900 style is little changed on the outside, but has a cool new dash if you like those sorts of things. But for $5K more I'll stick with the old dash. There are plenty of gadgets to keep you occupied. First tank (lots of idling) 16.7 MPG. I expect to do better as it breaks in.
I stuck Big Country wheel to wheel bars (I'm 6 feet, but had to use a parachute to get out), Linex, and Putco railings on mine. It's Victory Red, Zaino'd and will turn heads for some time to come. You'll be happy with a Classic. Go for it. (BTW, Classic has the 5 yr/100K warranty just like the new ones do.)
Dogzapper, shall I hide my cocker spaniel from you?
