After I drove all the way up to Antioch (about an hour).
I called him from my cell phone like 10x. I called him once from my house phone. It wasn't the first ne or the last one and he was too lame to think "Gee -- I didn't get a message. I know he has a cell phone, so maybe I should call that other number..."
He said he thinks he's getting a divorce. Turns out that she didn't want to sell the car for some reason. I don't really know what the deal was, but I'm looking at the bright side. The Golf was a reasonable car, but I was making a few compromises for it.
So -- screw that. I'm on the lookout for a 300ZX. 8)
