The Buffalo and the High Pressure Salesman

Saturday was spent looking at cars for my wife. We are looking at “crossover” SUVs, these are smaller than a traditional Jeep or Range Rover, drive more like a car, but offer the four wheel drive capability that would be ideal for going up into the mountains during the winter season. I recognise that car sales in the US in general and those on larger vehicles in particular are slow, but that is no excuse for the overly pushy approach at the Toyota dealer.

We have made no decision about which vehicle to buy and in fact the choice is now rather more complicated as we were impressed by the Acura car and by the dealer attitude. So now we are looking at that as well as the Lexus and the Mercedes.

We took a break for lunch and went to Fuddruckers for lunch. Be careful saying that after a few beers. It looked like a regular burger joint, but offered the option of burgers made from buffalo which is lower in calories, fat, and cholesterol than beef. It was extremely tasty, though smothering it in cheese and eating it with a large side of french fries may have offset some of the health benefits. The restaurant at which we ate also offered elk and ostrich burgers.
