Bent Fork, Indiana. - There was jubilation in the U.S. car industry when Dr. Arnold Goldstein of Pineneedle County, Sasquahama Falls, Wyoming, bought a new car today.
Standing proudly beside his CX420 at the Bent Fork dealership of General Motors, Dr. Goldstein was clearly taken aback by the media attention.
"I've been thinking of getting a new car, as my 9-year-old Ford pickup was getting rusty", he said, "and with a 40% discount, now was the time to buy".
Posing for the cameras next to the truck's gleaming red paintwork, the Doctor explained how he had gone for the sunroof and sport wheels option, but not sat-nav.
General Motors shares rose 8%.
