: man gets brand new 06 Corvette free. read this its great

10-29-04, 06:52 PM
recently a local Chevy dealership had a sale and one of the pitches for it was "we'll pay your first payment." this guy walks in and looks at a brand new 06 Corvette (loaded) and decides he wants it. they go in and do the paperwork and the salesman says something to him about the first payment. the guy says "i want the car paid off for the first payment." the salesman says "you cant do that." "yes i can, it doesnt say anything about not paying it," says the guy buying the car. they call the owner of the car lot (he owns the biggest dealership in east tn) and he says "no you cant." and calls the lawyer for the company. the lawyer looks at the situation and says "he can, there is nothing in here that says you cant pay it off." so the guy get s the car for free. well sorta, sales tax and all that other stuff. it was in a local paper i read the other day. i thought it was pretty damn hilarious. it is funny cause its true.

That friggin rocks!! I wonder if the Dodge dealer here will give me that kind of deal on the Viper they have? :histeric:

Thats why you have very detailed rules for things like that.

Very clever of the guy, very funny!

Link, link!

no, no link. i thought it was today's paper but upon further inspection is was last weeks. i thought it was 10-29 and it was actually 10-22. dont ask how i screwed that up. it was hilarious. of course they droped that "we'll pay the first payment." i just thought i'd share that.

Which paper? Kingsport Times-News?

10-29-04, 08:17 PM
no, it was on a page in the Bristol Herald Courier. look for small a section, cause that is what it was in. i believe it was in the regional section.

I think this is their website but I can't find anything.

I turned the corvetteforum folks loose on it. They'll sniff it out.

10-29-04, 09:19 PM
cool. any of them from around where i live? they could probably find it quick. i read about it here at work. i have no idea why last friday's paper was still here but it is.

Is that Tri-Cities Washington? Richland, Pasco, Kenewick?

how can the dealer be stupid enough to not list any limitations on that offer :rolleyes2

10-30-04, 08:13 PM
i am sure they did but that wasnt one. that is why they called to lawyer in to look at it. they looked at the ad in the paper and it didnt say anything about the first payment being a payoff.

This might be a little shortsighted of me but uhh... is the 06' Vette even available yet? It isnt quite 2005...

10-31-04, 03:34 PM
There was something like that I heard about a while ago. Some TV ad said a car cost like 5000 banannas. So someone brought in 5000 banannas and the dealer had to give him the car. May be an urban legend though.

May be an urban legend though.
That's my opinion, too.
But you can never underestimate human stupidity. That's why I asked for links, anything.

11-01-04, 08:39 AM
man, that would be cool. i'd take a free vette :D

woops meant 05. when i started this thread i was talking to my sergeant about something and i put 06 but i meant 05. must have been thinking the C6 body style i wasnt paying attention. :cookoo: :nono:
