So I go today to buy my '96 Mystic Cobra that I have been looking at for a week (low milage, GREAT price.) I had been in contact with the salesman daily about my loan status (went through my credit union, CHEAP rates). I even talked to him yesterday afternoon 3 times !! Suring the third conversation I told him that I had the money coming from the credit union and would be at the dealership at 9:00 am this morning. He told me that there was one other person looking at the car but he didn't have the money yet and that the car was mine if I still wanted it. I said I did and would see him in the morning. So I leave work 5 hours early to go get my new toy only to find out that they sold the car to someone else last night!!!!! Not only was I disappointed that the car was sold, I was extremely pissed off that I lost 5 hours of pay for nothing!!! They say that they are going to find me another one but I told him that the only reason I was buying the car was because it was a Mystic. (I had originally started looking for a '99 or newer GT.) He said that they will find one. We'll see.

Thanks for letting me vent.

Sorry for the long post.:livid: :livid: :livid:

I think that salesman sold you out..... (and probably got more $$ out of it by selling it to the other dude, he was just "doing his job" I'm sure) :rolleyes:

Don't do business with him again, that's for sure. Sorry to hear about that, I would hate to have a car like that swept out from under me.... :(

That is truely a bummer. But Money talks, so the first guy to show up with the money got the car. It would have been nice had they called you, however. Next time, put down a small deposit to hold the car... get it in writing.

Speaking of next time... I'll bet you can find a Mystic if you search the classified, Ebay, etc. Probably from a private party.

Sorry you lost your deal. It really does suck.

Damn that does su*ck.

steve97Cobra is correct. Next time you want something, just put a small deposit down on it and it would have been yours.

Same thing happened to me several years ago, waiting for financing through credit union (too slow sometimes) and the car got sold. I could not blame the salesman, it was my fault for not putting the money up.

I found out after talking with the sales manager that one of the other salesmen sold it to the other guy for 2000 more than I was going to pay. I guess it is true what they say... money talks, bull s*** walks. Damn them.

Moon crickets? What in the hell are moon crickets?!?!?!? Anyway I agree!! I wish I could afford a '03 Cobra. Unfortunately it is way out of my budget. Unless a rich forum member would like to GIVE me one. I would like a yellow one with a 5-speed thank you. If someone would like to take me up on the offer, just let me know.

well at least you are in a great position to negotiate price. :)

if they find another one for you the chances of getting a killer deal are good.

Hope you find one soon....I know how it is to have made a decision to get something have the $$ and not be able to get it right then. :mad:

good luck

ToddB: Like the others said, leave a deposit and get it in writing. Then you have legal rights to the car.

Just for fun, call the salesman and tell him nicely to help you get another Mystic. Let him do some work and lead him on for a while. When he finally has one there for you to look at, tell him to "blow you".

;)

Thanks Mystang for pointing out that I am obviously an idiot!:D I completely forgot that it was a 6 speed in the Cobra's now.

Brian - You're right. IF they get another one in that I like, it will have to be one killer deal for me to buy it from them.

Anyone want to take me up on my '03 Cobra offer????
