good plan!I would wait until Chevy starts to offer incentives or cut prices due to lack of sales
Wait, now I'm confused: are we talking about the Chevrolet SS or the Commodore SS?It has a recess area made to fit a standard plate, without a plate it does not look finished, their is a production line photo in another thread, you will see it clearly looks wrong without a plate, we have no one plate states.
Yes I am aware that you start negotiations at the lowest possible price (common sense). I didn't add that on there because I thought people on this forum (especially you) would have the brain capacity to envision my method. I could have just as easily said I will start my negotiations at zero and work my way up to the lowest possible price. I said "fight for the $45K" as a figure of speech meaning I will not pay a penny over it whether I have to look for a dealer that will give me the deal I am looking for. Never know what you will encounter with dealers some may be stubborn like yourself and say NO...You shouldn't have to "fight" for the $45k MSRP.
Anyone who pays a cent over MSRP is a fool.
An accounting major should know that begin your negotiations with dealer cost (a car's dealer invoice price) and let the dealer work you up from that price. Frankly, if the dealer is pre-selling the car to you, there is risk or floor plan costs to him, so he should be flexible.
If I was a recent college grad, I would try to find a clean, 1-owner C5/C6/G8/TBSS and try to pay cash or use an "autocheck" autoloan from a credit union. (anyone can join the Pentagon's CU with a $20 donation to fallen solider family fund).
I would take this idea to your father and ask him for the downpayment for a rental property instead of the money for the car. If you feel you MUST move out now, then look for duplexes.
Investing $50k in a depreciating asset right out of school isn't the best decision.
What are they teaching in accounting schools today ?????
