Did anybody ever suggest a trade for your Jeep?

That was one weird encounter, for sure.

And then to flip you off! Was he really expecting you to accept his ridiculous offer?

Was he just let out of prison...?

Sounds like a scam attempt to me. A high pressure offer of cash.

Anyways, I had a couple dealers offer me money for my Raptor. There is a shortage of trucks and the Raptor hasn’t been built since last Summer. One finally offered me $65K for it. I pounced on it since I originally paid only $61K.

I knew crazy stuff would happen as soon as I would buy a Jeep. But I never expected this that soon.

Three weeks in, fueling the Willys. This random guy shows up and points at his 2020 Subie STI, next pump.

"If your Wrangler's a manual, I trade you my STI plus 10 000 $CAN for your Jeep. Like...right now", he said.

I looked at the pump gauge besides his STI: 92 $CAN worth of premium fuel.

"Is that why?", I asked with a smirk on my face, pointing at the pump.

He repeated his offer. His STI and 10 000$. "Cash", he added.

"Nah i'm good. Nice car, by the way", I added, pointing at what I would call a very nice (and probably stolen) black STI.

Insulted, he flipped the bird at me, spat on my Jeep and walked away.

HE SPAT ON MY WILLYS. HE F'N...SPAT...ON MY JEEP.

Now, let's put aside the fact that guy was obviously a shady dip s***. Did anybody ever suggest a trade for your Wrangler?
As a Canadian, I read this and was a little sceptical. Then I saw you're from Quebec and it completely makes sense. Still a little odd though, I mean a STI is worth more than a 2dr Willys without the $10k........

Canadian or not, I'm probably more appalled that you let some dude spit on your ride and just walk away. Did he ask for your girlfriend\wife's number also?

Hey, that's harsh. Remember, we're nice? Yes, our QC friends have had a reputation, but that's in the past - they voted 'non'!

Now say sorry whether you mean it or not and let's have a full strength beer and a couple rye's!

Nah but he asked for your Mom’s so I gave it away saying there’s already 50 boys who have it anyway.

We laughed. Good memory.
A mom joke? Seriously? C'mon, we have a reputation to uphold, we are gonna need you more witty than that. Now I am REALLY starting to doubt the story.

So yes then?
Your license plates are true! Lol.

Our cops don't really have birds in Canada. I think Peel Regional (a suburban area of Toronto that includes Pearson airport) has one and the Provincial Police in Ontario and Quebec as well as the Mounties have a couple, but our cops don't generally have choppers, or armored vehicles for that matter.
Hell, they still ride horses out in Saskatchewan, and dog sleds in the Yukon !!!
