Nice gesture. After watching the pay it forward movie I thought a lot about that concept and decided I liked it.
When I bought my Z06 in Aug 01, pre 9/11 when the 02 was just hitting the streets and was in high demand, I went to my little local Chevy dealer and asked him about getting a Z06. The sale manager laughed at me. I learned quickly about Corvette quotas for dealers. Anyways, he asked me what I wanted (Torch Red 02 Z06) and he sat down at his computer, did a quick search and printed out about 40 build sheets east of the Mississippi and handed them to me and told me good luck.
On about my 32nd phone call I reached a dealer who said they didn't have Torch Red Z06 for sale. I asked if it was sold already and they more or less said, "read my lips we don't have one, haven't had one..." Looking at the build sheet in front of me I asked them to do a VIN check. After a heavy sigh, they did one and found the car was on a train headed their way. "I presume you haven't sold it yet" was my next statement. :jester
The dealership ended up being very helpful from that point and actually gave me a good deal at the time. I flew there, bought the car, drove it home and went straight to the little local dealer with a big bottle of Dom Perignon. He was very pleased to see me again, especially with a shiny new car (and he actually haven't even seen one yet).
