    A great read! I'm not sure if Joe thinks the total included Fleet or if the dealership is just lying, but he (unfortunately) comes across as a cantankerous, bitter 89-year-old.

    My two favorite lines: "He had his wife call the dealership and challenge the claims." (This cracked me up...)

    and

    "'We thought it would be nice, like handing over the green jacket at the PGA,' Reda said." (Of course, the Green Jacket is part of The Masters, not The PGA; which is a different tournament. The quote made me think of the Animal House line "Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?")

    Wow. My top month was 93 new. Averaging 130 is insane.
