nicer than nicer



Lindsay in Chattanooga sent me both of these. The first, she suggests, means "Nice Cars for people who think they're good but can't afford a new car." Perhaps the quotation marks are to reassure us that there won't be a goodness test before purchase. The second one is the rival dealership. The quotes make sense in context, out of context that's just strange.

What makes this even funnier is that the Nice Cars people are out of business in our area because of come "creative" money usage see i use quotations incorrectly, too) I guess that's why the competition is open!!!!! Joy, Bits

Hmmm . . . "Creative" money usage by a "Christian" car dealership for "good" people.

Nice.

I wonder if his given name is something like Bud or Skip, and his nickname is "Robert E." Which the contrarian in me can't help but appreciate.

Hey, I know this sign! They might have cars for "nice" people, but I don't think they're very nice. I knew a guy who got a '94 Ford Ranger from there that Blue Booked for about $1800. They set up a plan with him that would allow him to pay X amount each week. Well, I added it up, and by the time he had it paid off, he would have paid $27,000 for that crappy thing! And, if he missed a payment, they have this setting that makes the car not start.

Now, tell me. Is that the "Christian" thing to do? :-p

I wish the Jesus fish was in quotes. That would be truly awesome.
