    My wife and I are buying our first new car, and we've pretty much picked it out, all that's left is for me to test drive it to make sure it's okay. So my wife and myself get in the front seats, while the salesman gets in the back; he's gotta be under 30 years old. Now I've never had a car with a CD player, so it's important to me how this thing is going to sound, so I bring the Van Halen Best Of CD with me.

    So I stick the CD in before we pull away, and I click a couple of buttons and Ain't Talkin Bout Love starts up. The salesman goes, "alright Def Leppard". As I scream, "what???" my wife starts laughing and shaking her head. So the salesman tries to save himself by saying, "oh that's right, it's Whitesnake".

    I'm pretty sure we're going to buy the car, but this salesman isn't making it easy for me.

    Oh, my GOD! I feel sorry for that poor, deprived man, heheheh.

    Dude, what you SHOULD have done is play one of the more obscure tracks from Fair Warning or WACF or something and told the guy "See, I play in this band and this is our demo CD. Wanted to see how it would sound in the car..."

    God....this reminds me of when I heard someone call into a radio station and request "Stairway To Heaven, by Def Leppard."

    WOAH!! That dude either had a really deprived childhood or has no taste in music to confuse those three.

    I don't know Glenn, you may get a better deal with someone that knows what they're listening to.

    At least he didn't say: "Wow, I love Kingdom Come".....

    Any of you guys remember THAT cheesy band?


    The '80s. They were the best of times, but they were the worst of times too....ie: Winger, White Lion, Brittney Fox, Warrant....ah...must I go on?...

    Now I'm waiting to hear someone defend one of these bands....LOL...

    I hate when some people put VH into the whole "hair band" category...Give me a break will ya?

    But anyway gettting back to the topic at hand: You should get at least a grand taken off the price for that salesmen's comment Glennn!

    Glenn,

    That is one of the funniest things I've ever read in my life.

    Unfortunately, it's also one of the saddest. (Cabo shakes his head in dismay).

    It's a sad state of things when the 20 somethings have no idea of the incredible legacy of REAL music VH has for them. (Excluding all the 20 somethings on this board! ) You should call the car lot manager back and tell him that you are a serious car buyer and you'd appreciate a serouis car dealer and not some wet-behind-the-ears pencil necked geek that's wasting your time. I mean, if he can't tell VH from Whiteworm, how can he POSSIBLY sell you the benefits of the car your looking at?

    Definitely needs to take about 2 grand off the price, as well as sales tax paid and about a year's worth of oil changes.

    I've dealt with more than a few car dealers in my time.

    If they screw w/you again, sing "Love goes walkin' OUT!"
