Another one of my stupid questions that arent gunna get answered

Okay. I found a celica i like. Cheap. But It's all the way out in Kentucky... Im in NY. I dont really feel like making it a road trip nor do i feel like paying $500 to get it shipped or take a plane down there. Do you think maybe i could just go to a dealer around here and test drive a celica GTS. Do they all drive the same or somewhat the same? I've found a GTS for 11,500. Thats pretty good right? 45K miles. 6 speed. Well my main question is will 2 diff celicas drive the same?

Im trying to convince my parents that the car i am looking at to buy is fine. And they said that you can't buy a car w/o driving it. instead of driving down to kentucky to get a car. I'd figure i'd drive a celica up here in NY and judge the one in Kentucky upon that one? Would that be a fair judgement?

if its at a dealership... you can have it sent to your dealership... you just will have to pay alittle more for processing fees, unless they are waived. then you could test drive it, no one has to make you buy it, here if you test drive it, and dont like the dealer cant stick it to you that you gotta buy it, and try walking out on it, they might haggle the price down a little just for ya... even though they paid to get it to you... the least time a car sits on the lot, the better and both you and them know that, so that what you gotta do... first find a young sales man, who understands you, and approach him like you know cars (as i did with the scion xB) and he will treat you differntly, hell give him the link to ecelica.com, and get to know him, ask him about his car, what he likes, if he likes the celica, maybe he could even get you a good deal locally, other wise he will outsource for you, he wants the sale... any sale is money in his pocket so he will do anything to get it for you, even if it means outsourcing to kentucky...

Yeah. True. But its not at a dealer. I thought about that. but why would they want it shipped to them? Maybe i'll work out something with the guy like some type of a warenty. My parents just want to wait around and wait for a closer one. but 11,500 is a rely good deal no? I mean Its a GTS with only 45K miles. That's a really good price in my opinion. The car is in great shape. There were 2 previous owners. The guy didn't even know what lift bolts were so i guess its fair to say taht he didnt race.

I would have to agree with your parents man, test drive the actual car you are interested in (not a similar one) before you buy it.
cuz there is probably a reason why it's 11,500.
the guy could've rallied the hell out of or something else you couldn't know about.

side note: you don't have to know about lift bolts to run a car hard.
