I pulled out $6,000 cash in $100 bills and told him "take it or leave it" because I have 3 more lined up to look at and I know these cars. He had to go consult with his Manager, came back & said let's get the paperwork done.

Just goes to show when buying a car or for that matter anything else "cash in hand talks" and gets you a much better deal.

That's awesome! Cash really does talk and BS walks.
I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left
