"The sharks look hungry..."

So it has been decided to trade in the Drangmobile on a new, smaller car for Mrs. Drang to use in the commute.

Yesterday we went out to look at the selected models, the plan being to tell any salespeople "Just looking today" with various and sundry reasons why we weren't buying.

You see where this is going, right?

Turn out that shopping for a car at the end of the month, at the beginning of a new model year, apparently leads to the sales people begging their manager "I know we're getting screwed, but a sale is a sale", and smokin' deals on last years lightly used demo/courtesy model, identical to this years model you test drove.

As in, the absurd offer you made to get them to shut up is accepted.

Oh, and you remember how, in my post The Clue Meter: At The Fair I mentioned
Looked at a Ford Fiesta, and somehow resisted asking the rep if it came with a zebra head and a certificate for an amphibious landing.
It doesn't, but it is the same color. Zombie Apocalypse Green.
