2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS: Sales Update
October 04, 2010
Every long term car I sell brings it's own type of buyers. After I listed the Camaro for sale I started getting a lot of text messages (the new thing in car buying). I'm listing it for $31,500 and people will write and ask, "Would you take $25K?" This weekend I had someone text and ask what the invoice price was? I had to explain, via text, that it was a used car and didn't have an invoice. His reponse: "Haaa haaaa."
In the past, I've listed cars and haven't heard a peep for weeks. This time, I'm getting a lot of inquiries but nothing solid yet.
So what's all this mean? If I was a shrink I would say that this car attracts a lot of dreamers. The hot design catches their attention and they fantacize about owning one. So the next best thing is to text message people like me who are selling one.
