The Dealer mark up?
In my 45 years on this earth I have yet to own a new car. I've always gravitated towards the old school 60's cars, and that's all I've ever owned. My mid-life crisis started when I was 18 I guess. Nothing new ever was worth buying, till now. I've been talking to a local dealer about ordering a 2SS/RS, and came in today to pay the dues and go for it. Going over the paperwork and not only was I looking at a car that was coming in built and not ordering a car like I had specified, but I see the little $7K dealer mark up at the bottom of the pricing column. I couldn't believe all this time I was thinking I was paying MSRP, and then at the last minute it's a nice fat 7 grand pork charge. Needless to say I left pretty pissed and with no car. I've done copious checking locally and found the lowest mark up to be $3k. I guess that will be the way I go, but I'm far from happy about it. What are you guys paying out there? I'm in Washington.
