Just because I was young was no excuse to treat me like that. I wrote a letter to their manager a few days later, but never got a response. I did eventually find a car, but I had to give up on rear-wheel-drive, because I just couldn't find anything that was both cheap enough and in decent condition. (Yeah, I probably could've gone for a cheaper third-generation Camaro or Firebird with a V8, but I was still a young driver and knew I didn't know yet how to handle that much power.
(Incidentally I settled on a '95 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme sedan, and thorougly enjoyed driving that car)
