Default why most car salesman don't make money

I have been truck shopping for the pat 2 days, I walked into about 6 dealers and told them what I wanted and if they had it or could find it, I would take it. I gave them my cell phone # and told them to get back to me when they located it. can you believe that not one dealer called me back. it took me calling a friend that new someone in the business to find the truck for me. he did find it and I bought it right there just like i said I would. by the way I ended up getting the f150 lariot supercrew black with black leather, landwalrus edition.

Watch the GVWR it's only an F-150... hauling the Landwalrus alone might tap that bad boy out.

Should be enough for that 26ft ride however.

We live in a small town, and have seen all kinds of people come to my dads carlot. He is one of the smaller used car lots, so you get alot of tire kickers.

One day, one of the carlots down the street called (buddies of my dads) and were laughing saying they were sending someone up. Sure enough, this huge filthy man shows up. He's so fat, he actually had strips of material sewn down the legs of his pants to make them wider. He was carry a dirty old bag too. He looked like he didnt have a pot to piss in. Anyway, dad went out to talk to him and ended up riding along with him on a test drive. He came back, and amazingly that dirty old bag was full of cash and he bought the Blazer! So, obviously we called the other carlot back...............laughing!
