THAT OLD CHESTNUT
Previous | 1 | Next

This story is as old as the internet itself. Today courtesy of Pistonheads:

A close family friend once went to the Merc dealer to have a look at an SL500, with a view to buying one there and then. He went down in his overalls as he'd been working on a project car and was treated with utter contempt as he looked a bit tatty. Of course when he got the gold card out they all soon changed their tune, they changed it back again when he told them to fk off and he'd go to another dealer because they'd been so aloof.

It's classic Pistonheads, I'll give you that.

Out of step with the forum.

That story has been around longer than the Internet.

Almost 30 years since Trading Places came out.
"One American Express GOLD card...".

Nowadays the qualification is a pulse. :D

Little rich bloke I work with does property development with his dad. Ogre of their associates went to buy pick-ups for business covered in plaster; was ignored @ first dealership even when actively asking, went across the road to a nissan dealer & bought 6 nissan navaras ($300k?). lol @ first dealer.

I'm not surprised the first place didn't want to sell to a fairytale monster.

In actual life I've had this! Twice!

First time went to look at an Audi S2 Coupe. Guy wouldn't even let me drive it cos he obviously thought I was wasting his time and didn't have the money. Two weeks later I bought my brand new Ibiza Cupra which cost me more than his second hand Audi.

Mate went to buy an escort Cosworth. Guy actually said to him "Theres no point me even doing a finance quote cos you can't afford it" he eventually ended up buying a Monte Carlo ltd edition Cosworth then took it round to the dealer to show the sales manager what he bought. I think the guy got the sack over that.

I had this when I went to test drive the C2GT. Bought a new Cooper S instead, for CASH.
Tw@ts.

Knackered old hairdresser's sh1tter

I remember there was a big story about this when someone got ignored by a Ferrari salesperson as they were dressed in pyjamas (I think), but he was actually quite famous and minted. Complained and Ferrari sacked the salesman.

How about not having a sig at all?

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you - England.

That's England, right there.

The last time I went to the dealership in Lyndhurst, the only guy buying has holes in his shoes and looked like he'd been pulled through a hedge backwards!

What is they say about wealth whispering??
