The reason why this car was never featured as "Current Inventory" is because this car was looked at and pre-sold a day after we received it, to the nicest, warmest, happiest, most engaging family you would ever want to meet. It was also sold at a very affordable price.
We waited on title to come in, then ran this super nice Century Custom through service and detail and finally completed the paperwork sale just tonight. Our customers were so patient and thoughtful as we went through the exact process we take with every vehicle.
Many of our vehicles pre-sell this way.
If you see a vehicle of interest under our "Upcoming Inventory", give us a call or stop out to get the details on features and pricing. Don't wait until the car goes to the top of the page under "Current Inventory" because there's a large chance it won't ever make it there. Also, keep in mind, that we are happy to make evening appointments. This wonderful family (can you tell I was smitten with their awesomely adorable kids?!? I wanted to adopt them until they're 18, then they could go back to their parents once college tuition kicks in) was one of several evening appointments this week. Never a problem to set an appointment after 5:30pm or before 9am. As always, give us a call at 319-683-2850 or 888-306-5362 or 319-321-9626 if you have any questions or would like additional information.

Tim comes out to the shop last night (at 10pm) and sees me with half my bum sticking out of the sanitation company's garbage bin (boy, he's one LUCKY guy, isn't he)? He asks what I'm doing.
I tell him; I'm looking for the stuff out of today's vehicles that were detailed.
HahaFunny-Jokester Tim goes over to his desk,
pulls off this musical Hawkeye pen hanging on the wall and pushes the button on top.
Of course the Iowa fight song plays
with a resounding "Go Hawks!" at the end.
Tim says, "Hey, tell them you find this in every vehicle."
I stare at Tim.
I tell him he's full of it, and he just wanted to bring the Hawkeyes up into this topic somehow.
He agrees and hangs his pen back up on the wall.

We had a super hot.hot.hot 2004 Grand Prix GT with 110k miles delivered just last night at 9:30pm.
I was taking pictures for this post at 10pm.
I told Tim, hey, let's open up the trunk of this newly delivered Grand Prix and I will take a picture of whatever is in that trunk point-blank,
without touching a thing.
As long as there's not a dead body in there, I'm showing whatever is in there, no matter how gross.
I'm armed with my crappy, cheap camera.
Tim slowly opens up the trunk.
I adjust my eyes to the darkness (it is 10pm after all).
I snap the picture.
Guess what's in there.
Hehehe, even WE were surprised :):):)
