All these ballers trading into a CRV for their newly discovered family.
That's how I got my Cobra.
Dude knocked up his wife, had a baby and wife demanded a minivan.
I got a mint, super low mile Cobra for cheap. Guy bought it new and only had it for about 6 months.

One mans loss is another mans gain. :devilish:

I dont get it. People buying used cars arent paying cash so how in the fuck are banks financing these absurd prices!?

Seems criminal to me!

0% int on my 2020 Mustang last summer with like 6 miles on it seems like a better and better deal all the time!

A buddy buys used cars for them. He's a car guy and on TCG I believe. I know he was in ChiSVT. They can't get inventory from Subaru. They are a top dealer in their area and still are only getting like 30% of their monthly sales in new cars. Struggling like most dealerships and auto makers.
Perhaps he can make me a sweet deal on the silver Z06.

i think you may be wrong here as well.

and also that's easy, a lot of banks will finance 110% of the vehicle value, and then coupled with possibly having a couple grand saved up to cover the "overage" no issues there.

IMHO, people not affected by Covid layoffs didn’t spend money on stupid stuff during Covid quarantine. Bars, fancy restaurants, etc…now they are like, Whoa, I can afford a new car. People shopping like crazy now.

People paying 80k+ for used C7 Z06s? IN CASH :rofl:

I dont buy that for a second. They were selling wayyyy below MSRP for 2018 and 2019s because everyone knew the C8 was coming.

money is different now, watch the site, guarantee 3-5 of the "high end" things are gone.

also there's nerd C7 owners that view it as the "last real corvette" who are boner-ing over C7's oddly enough and i think f'ing with that market also.

we spent a lot of money on take out once my job was back to working, and while rona was rolling because i knew those places/people were hurt the most. keeping those places open and rolling is something i viewed as important. eating food at fancy restaurants, bars, etc, isn't stupid at all :rofl:

We have always eaten out and continued to do so.... Because I want those place to continue to exist.

Being a person who just bought a car. I shopped hard and often until I found one that I think was reasonably priced. Sure others my be blowing money paying the markup but not everyone did/is.

“Stupid stuff” was an exaggeration. I worked in the beer business and love all alcoholics. Expendable income was being saved instead of spent.

Go in and ask for Damien. He's a cool guy and may be able to make a deal.
It's actually not priced horribly based on the market. Still about $5K more than I would want to spend.

Actually it says that's at Motorworks Infinity so I left that out of the count. I could see the Porsche dealer or BMW having 1 or 2 in this area but Honda. :rofl:

Gotta be used car buyers buying whatever they can make money on and motorworks has the bankroll to buy these.
