Fun with the yuppies.

Post by Reb Stew on January 5th 2013, 11:03 pm

Some yuppie and his 16 year old son came down to test drive that little short bed truck I have for sale. I have the price and FIRM written in the add. He tried to low ball me and give me $1300.00 for it. I told him if he had some for $1300 I'd buy them all day long 'cause after tax time they would sell like hot cakes. He kept tire kicking and knocking the truck until I had had enough. I didn't want to even sell it to him anymore. The kid wanted to drive it but only had his learners permit. I told the dad I'd go with him. The kid act like he was scared to death. After 2 blocks of doing 2 mph and getting so close to cars that I thought he was going to rip the mirrors off I told him to pull over. Twisted Evil Let me show you how to drive this thing.

I took off from the stop sign smoking the tires. Next stop sign we whipped around it sliding sideways like we were on ice. Next stop sign we were fish tailing it around the corner staying sideways more than straight. then 3 blocks long the pedal was to the floor and we were moving through the west end of Newport. I looked over at the 16 year old kid which I thought would be loving it and he was sliding all over the seat and I think he shit himself. He had the look of meeting the Grim Reaper on a dark night and wouldn't speak when I ask him what he thought. We got to my block and I turned in. As I parked I seen the red in his face was going away. I guess he took his first breath of air since I started driving. I told the dad that I had to show him what it had so I drove back. The dad said "wow I don't drive like that. I'm 44 but feel like 85." I told him maybe he should stomp the gas pedal in his car from time to time and he wouldn't feel so old. The dad said he would talk to his son about it and call me about 8 to make me a better offer. I told him not to worry about it that I would go any lower and shook his hand and said thanks for coming. Walking in the house I was laughing. I haven't had that much fun in a while. I think the 16 year old kid may end up with a nice cream colored Volvo after the ride I gave him.

If he would have liked it then he would have been prospect material maybe. Laughing

I have told this story on here before but when I was around 8 or 9 years old a friend and I were walking a couple blocks down from my house and his dad pulled up driving a brand new black with gold trim Bandit Style SE 78 Trans Am. His dad worked for a Pontiac Dealership and brought new cars home from time to time. He picked us up and dropped me off at my house. Sitting in the back seat I was struck by the aluminum turned dash and floor shift. My daddy always had Cadi's. This was no Daddy Cadi! My mom and dad were doing yard work in the front yard. As I got out of the car he cleared the pipes. Wow that car sounds cool I thought. As I started up the steps He takes off in a cloud of smoke and tires screeching up the street. I can still remember the car sliding like it was just going to shoot off the road. My mom and dad just shook their heads.
It left a lasting impression on me. From the time I was 16 I have always had one. Sometimes owning 12 to 15 Firebird's, Formula's or T/A's at one time. First one I ever got I still own today and it was given to me by my mom and dad. Some guy that was here yesterday ask if I'd sell my old Bird. I just smiled and told him that one's not for sale. Even if he had a half a mil/ that's the truth.
Hot rodding is in some peoples blood. That was my first look at what I wanted. Thank God Jimmy's dad didn't work at a Renault dealership cheers

i would be more worried about the kid in a volvo than i would a truck. idk what the truck is or what it has in it, volvos may look like grandma cars but have alot more (BEEP) than what most people think..



keep in mind alot of these are stock. and yes they come with turbos......



and just for the lolz a volvo powered tractor doing burnouts.
