History
The wife and I were looking for a newer car for her at a local Nissan dealership. We had looked at a couple cars and weren't really impressed the salesman and us had already parted ways and we were leaving. Parked in the back hidden from everyone else sat a 2 door Pathfinder and my 1988 Samurai. I instanttly went back and got the Salesman. He thought we had changed our minds about the Altima we had taken for a test drive. He had no knowledge of the Samurai and told me flat out that "you don't want that thing" and "I wouldn't pay more than a penny for that". Not your typical salesman attitude. He had to go back to his "boss" for a price and he came back with $2500. I wasn't thinking and I told him him I'd give them $1000. The rest is history. They really didn't want to sell me the vehicle either. All used vehicles were subject to their multi-point inspection. The tech came up to me and asked me why I bought it.
