Good catch. I thought they stopped making that model and the T-Birds at the end of the 80's. I guess I never saw many to know they still made them into the mid-90's.
Anyway the dealership made the promise, it that the Clunker deal was good, and then slipped in the clause at the last minute, without telling the customer what they had changed. Sleazy legal fraud still occurred.

Tell me how what happened rises to the level of "sleazy legal fraud"? All we've heard is one side of the story, but you've immediately jumped down the dealer's throat saying they committed sleazy legal fraud without hearing both sides.

I think there is more to this story. He bought the car in Aug '09 and they called him in April '10. Doesn`t add up . Something looks fishy here. And not common for new car dealers to go through all of that and also taking him to small claims court. Not that new car dealer is not there, but this story doesn`t add up or more details were left out. I hope the OP responds back .

This isn't a court-of-law, and I guess we wouldn't hear both sides of the story. Even if the dealer came here and gave their side of the story, we couldn't confirm the poster was really the dealer, right? So as I said in Post #2721 - "if true", I'll go with the poster's story, and comment on it. This could be fact or fiction - like a lot on the web.

The OP has just one post, and hit-and-run style posting is typical of a troll. I'm leaning towards fiction.

Let's not go C4C again. The market still has distortions from the last one. Only the dealers made out while the taxpayers got hosed.

January 3rd, 2007 was the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the Congress:
At the time:
The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77
The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5%
The Unemployment rate was 4.6%
George Bush's Economic policies SET A RECORD of 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS of JOB CREATION!
What in the name of Reason & Common Sense happened since?
