And what happened??? Did the deal go through?
Gold American Express, since 1979,
back when it meant something.
And a few other cash back cards as well.

Oh yeah, they sold it to him.

I probably get my aversion to public confrontation from him, but if I were buying the car I would have said (or would have wanted to say), "Look. Here is my offer. I get it if you can't accept it, I don't know how much you need to make off a car to stay profitable. But I'm not desperate for a car. I'm just thinking about upgrading and this is more than I was planning to spend. If you just can't take it we'll go home, think about it, and come back next week. If you sell it by then, well, more power to you."

I am planning to get a car soon, in a few months. I have been reading about how the things work and what I should know. This is a great refresher course again. I need to read these stories again before I go to a dealer, just to pump the blood faster.
