Bama08 replied to SILVER SLED's topic in Automotive Industry & Market DiscussionI hear you. I had an 06 and it was one of my favorites. But yeah, I just don't care for these new ones.
I like the look of the 6 spoke better. But, it’s funny you mention scratches because I found several on eBay that were scratched like crazy. My wife is going to murder me if I keep spending money on it though. I’ve convinced her I need to replace my level with a lift. I went engineer on her splainin’ angles and what not. She gave up the argument, but if I tell her I’m also looking at new wheels, she’ll stab me.
This was last year and I’ve slept a few times since, but they went ahead gave me some discount they were offering for financing with one of the preferred lenders. When I say they gave me the discount, I just mean they took the amount off what I was going to pay. I can’t remember exactly, but I want to say it was $1500. That said, it was close to the end of the year and they had a ton of trucks left. On another note, I love my 20” snowflakes, but I’m thinking about finding some of the 6 spoke 20s.
Thank you. I thought that was the case from info I had been given. Good ammo going into a negotiation with a car dealer. Bill Smith in Cullman, AL wouldn’t come off much even offering cash.
They have A LOT of trucks. I mean A LOT. They started offering the $37k for the 2017s last year in late October. I showed up a week later and they didn’t have a 2017 left. But they were offering the same rebates on the 2018, so I bought one of those.
I was going to mention the top 5 stat. I know absolutely nothing about the car business, but I have heard HB doesn’t make much on their trucks. Their biggest profit comes from moving them.
Bama08 replied to SILVER SLED's topic in Automotive Industry & Market DiscussionIt usually takes me awhile to warm up to new model Silverados, but I just don't think I will ever warm up to this one. Like you said, it's just an opinion, but mine is that this is the ugliest truck I've seen since the 2007 Tundra. Doesn't even look like a Chevy to me. My top are 1) mid-80s 2) 2006 and 3) 2014.
Reading some of these replies and it got me thinking about what my wife and I talked about the other day. I think few people actually have a passion for what they do. In other words, I think most of us just fall into a career and either enjoy it, tolerate it, or flat out hate it. What I mean is, my wife is an Orthopedist. She felt the call for the medical field from the time she was in elementary school. Her sister is an Ophthalmologist and in similar fashion, knew what she wanted out of life. So, when I say few, I simply mean a minority of us have a true calling/passion. A majority of us just have a path we have to find and graduate high school or college and work in a few fields until we find something we can stay in. I can't go into detail with what I do for various reasons, but it was my case. I started out in a job I hated and worked my way into a field I actually enjoy. It isn't my passion, but I don't dread coming to work. I make great money and have a ton of time off to pursue my passion bow hunting. To sum it up (I thought of a better way to explain what I'm saying), people like my wife look at their "job" as a life, career, and hobby and will do it as long as they are able. She doesn't mind 12 hour days and will come home and study techniques in her field. A majority of us look at our job as a means to pursue other passions. Our jobs buy us a house, put food on the table, pay the bills, pay for vacations, and allows us to have a hobby.
You could go sleep with his wife. Seriously, report it. Even if you don't have a witness, provide them with what you know (and the car parts you picked up). Basically, give them as much information as possible. It should be enough to at least question the guy. Personally, considering what the attorney will cost and with only $1300 worth of damage, I wouldn't hire one. The best thing to do is just file a report and give them as much information as possible.
