Sharks, that's what they call sleazy car salesmen. Yet it was, when I was in high school I went to school with the son of the biggest car dealership in the county. Throughout this boy's reign his company is now the biggest in my county and so it was, I turned to what I thought was an old friend for help. Here's a copy of the email I sent him; xxxx, I don’t know if you remember me or not, but I am xxxx, xxxxxxx I went to school with you way back when, at xxxxxxx. First I wanted just to say hello! Lol But to be blunt, I really need your guidance and or help in a matter. I bought a car from you back in 2006 I think. Anyway it's a 2005 Chevy Cobalt. Heck I have even parked it in your driveway a couple of times as I have delivered pizzas to you while working my part time gig at Xxxx Xxxxx. I am not asking for a loan. I can't afford to buy a car right now, and no one would finance me anyway. At least not til the end of the year. But my wife and I are going thru an extreme rough patch financially right now. And the worst part is that the old Cobalt (we nicknamed her, Emily, lol) is giving me fits. I know for sure of one problem with the front passenger wheel assembly to the frame. It is loose and needs replaced. But it also needs other underneath work as well. I figure somewhere around 500 to 1000 for the repairs. I drive to xxxxxx and back every weekday for work. Plus the pizza thing on the weekends. I almost bankrupt the family buying 300 bucks worth of tires for it recently. What I am asking for is if you could authorize the repair of the car, and allow me the opportunity of paying back the repair bill at $50 to $100 a month, depending on tips etc. Considering I drive up and down Xxxxx from xxxxx to the mall area of Xxxxxx everyday, I would even let you guys wrap the vehicle with advertising to fray the expense. But I am in dire need and really need your assistance. Thanks for reading this, Sincerely, Bill Xxxxxxxx How pathetic is that. Well the good nes is, when my passenger wheel falls off, I should die rather quickly. BTW...he never responded.
