    Doing some updates to my '75

    In 2016 I woke up one morning to the police sitting in the driveway of the house next door, securing the property due to a murder that occurred there the night before. My wife & I decided that it was time to move, no matter what the cost. Sad thing was, they were squatters on the property, but the county & local gov closed their eyes to it. Until somebody died, of course. The bank that owned the property actually had to pay them to move out. HRG
  4. A classic,,,,, Customer: We sat here right in this room and went over this and over this! Jerry: Yeah, but that TruCoat-- Customer: I sat right here and said I didn't want no TruCoat! Jerry: Yeah, but I'm sayin', that TruCoat, you don't get it and you get oxidization problems. It'll cost you a heck of lot more'n five hundred-- Customer: You're sittin' here, you're talkin' in circles! You're talkin' like we didn't go over this already! Jerry: Yeah, but this TruCoat-- Customer: We had us a deal here for nine-teen-five. You sat there and darned if you didn't tell me you'd get this car, these options, without the sealant, for nine-teen-five! Jerry: All right, I'm not sayin' I didn't-- Customer: You called me twenty minutes ago and said you had it! Ready to make delivery, ya says! Come on down and get it! And here ya are and you're wastin' my time and you're wastin' my wife's time and I'm payin' nineteen-five for this vehicle here! Jerry: All right. I'll talk to my boss. See, they install that TruCoat at the factory, there's nothin' we can do, but I'll talk to my boss. [Jerry leaves the room] Customer: [to his wife] These guys here--these guys! It's always the same! It's always more! [Other room] Jerry: You goin' to the Gophers on Sunday? Salesman: Oh you betcha. Jerry: You wouldn't happen to have an extra ticket? Salesman: You kiddin'! [Jerry returns to his office] Jerry: Well, he never done this before. But seeing as it's special cir****stances and all, he says I can knock a hundred dollars off that Trucoat. Customer: One hundred--You lied to me, Mr Lundegaard. You're a bald-faced liar. A ****ing liar. Customer's Wife: Bucky, please. Customer: Where's my god damn check book? Let's get this over with.

    2021 Mustang Mach E - Leasing not offered???

    I do not see this on the Ford.CA site https://www.ford.com/finance/finance-options#ford-options HRG
  7. There's a dealership near me that has a Bronco Sport parked prominently in their lot, and it hasn't moved since it was put there 2+ weeks ago. I'm thinking they lost the keys,,,,,,,,, HRG

    Expedition STX new for 2021

    Getting back to the Expedition XL STX, they sure are proud of it. Knowing that at some point in the future, once I retire and lose my company car, just for kicks I ran the A/Z Plan numbers comparing a base Explorer with the Expy XL STX, with the only options on both of 4WD/AWD and the factory tow package. There's an $18K difference between them. Either vehicle, in their "base" configuration, suits my needs. I don't need heated nut warmers, and I own multiple pairs of gloves. HRG
  9. Maybe they're saving that for the Lincoln version,,,,, HRG
  10. Can you imagine the reaction if he talked negatively about a stock that's up 1200% in 1 year? HRG

    Minivan vs 3 row SUV - why are minivans looked down upon?

    I've had a lot of minivans over the years, from Astro's, Aerostar's, Windstar's, and a few Caravan's. They really can be the Swiss Army knife of a vehicle, easily changed from hauling people to cargo. Looking at a 2021 Sienna review, I'm a little disappointed that the 2nd row seats do not fold-down or are removable, but that may not matter to many. Even my current company-issued vehicle, a Dodge Journey, can easily have the seat backs folded down to carry 8' 2x4's, and will carry 10' lengths of 1/2" EMT conduit without a problem. People seem to forget that the "U" in SUV used to stand for Utility. HRG
  12. Let it go son, let it go,,,,,, HRG
  13. scode1, thank you for the update(s). The Detroit Free Press hasn't bothered to update their original article, since their "local" guy came in 2nd. HRG
  14. Interesting how Galpin Ford is still clinging to that statistic,,,, Yes, they WERE for 29 years, but not anymore. HRG
