Default Magic Carpet Ride

Woohoo bubaloo! On Wednesday I went to St. Louis (100 miles away)
and bought a brand new '06 automatic Camry LE with carpeted
floor mats (MSRP= $21,141) for $17,900 plus $65 doc. fee.
What a deal! Toyota's $500 rebate really helped.

Local Columbia dealer wouldn't budge: $18,800 out-the-door.
But Wolfe Toyota in St. Louis started a fever (A FEVER!) among
dealers in St. Louie. Wolfe has had a dealership in Kansas City
for years, but about 2 years ago they also opened one up in Saint Louis.

Fusz Toyo and Seeger Toyo both told me they'd match Wolfe's
sale price of 18.2 out-da-doe, something they refused to do when I
called'em over the phone days earlier from Columbia. Originally
Fusz and Seeger also wanted about 18.7. But by the end of negotiations,
Seeger went the extra mile: 17,900. Deal!

I saved more than $800 over my local dealer's price--and I believe
the locals were giving me INVOICE Price minus the $500 rebate, a good
deal too really. But the competition in Saint Louis was fierce! And I
must credit Wolfe Toyota's sale price for that, even though I didn't
buy from'em in the end. (Wolfe didn't have a SILVER JAPANESE Camry.
They only had Aspen Green and Grey from Japan.)

On the way back to Columbia, the car floated over the road
like a magic carpet! That was a Smooth and Quiet ride. I'm thinking
I'm doing 55 mph. I look down at the speedometer, and I'm actually
doing 75. Nice.

My only complaint is having to adjust my head everytime I want
to see the speed, because the steering wheel blocks the speed-o-meter.
Better ergonomics needed....

Could be worse. If he'd been rearended by a florist delivering tulips
you'd have Tiny Tim in your head instead of Steppenwolf.

Adjust the steering wheel, (tilt).........I know it comes with tilt.
Not an option........standard equipment too.
