Standard or Automatic?

I’ve been searching high and low for a new car for some time now. I think I finally found one—a 1998 Pontiac Firebird, white, v6 (insurance man!) with t-tops, but it’s standard. I guess that’s good and all, as my Uncle Scott taught me a while back. However, I’m a little confused. There are two articles for this car online. One ad is on New Jersey Automotives for $3,999.00, and the other is on Auto Shopper (magazine/online) for $4,995.00.

M.S.R.P. for this Firebird is $7880.00! What’s wrong with this car? Anything this cheap with low miles has to have something wrong with it.

Given my past experiences with car dealers, such as this one, I have little faith in car dealers and their online Ads. They are all a scam. As you can tell it’s on Auto Shopper Online for $6,995. He also had the ad in the paper for the same price. Once I got there it was for sale at a high $8,995. The dealer would not sell for the advertised price stating he never placed the AD for this car before. Even eBay is a scam at times. Win a car, seller refuses to sell, hence why there are reserves… idiot, but that’s another story.
