Rebadge My Car

This is what astounds me...not that someone wants to turn their car into a pose-mobile, but that they're willing to pay to have it professionally done. Of course, the average CL denizen probably thinks that $25 and a six pack of PBR is enough for professional work.

bumber

OK - I realize that when you consider all of the misspellings and grammatical errors it's silly to harp on just one. Something about this really bugs me - the p and b sounds are pretty distinct. I've never heard ANYONE pronounce the word "bumber". I can only assume the people who make this mistake have serious hearing loss.

And it can be yours for the low, low price of just $1000 (and by $1000 I actually mean $6500.)

I like how he calls it a "show car" and yet he couldn't be bothered to get the panel gaps right, or even match the bumper cover color to the sheet metal. Something is up with his driver's side door too - maybe a quick n' dirty respray?

This is all coming from somebody who isn't very fussy about appearance looking at relatively low-res photos. God only knows what it looks like in real life.

Special arrangement with a Major Lendor

I can help you get your credit reestablished.


Recent BankRuptcys are OK


IF
1) The Bankruptcy has been completed and you have proof of the Discharge
2) You have handled your handled your financial matters since then properly
3) You can prove your residence (i.e. phone bill, water bill, electric bill etc)

7) You can provide Proof of Income

Some DownPayment MAY be required but not always. Depends on your situation.


This is not a Drive Here/Pay Here program that requires weekly payments on overpriced cars and never reports the fact that you are paying on time to a credit bureau.

This is a major lendor that will report your timely payments.

These are not old cars with a lot of mileage.

These are GM Certified vehicles with 100,000 mile warranties on the Drivetrain (engine and transmission) and some remaining Bumper to Bumper Coverage on the rest of the car. Warrranty coverage is from the manufacturer, General Motors, not some aftermarket arrangement.


If you are interested in the above respond by email or call Rick at (512) 289-3673 today!


*sample payment of $299 a month is on a 2008 Chevrolet Cobalt for 72 months with no money down with approval of credit.




* This item has been posted by-dealer.
* Location: a month* in Austin NO MONEY DOWN!
* it's NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests


Yes, you can have a Cobalt for the low low price of $21,000! Never mind the fact that it'll only be worth $2000 by the time you finish paying for it.*
