http://www.youtube.com/TheGuysManual Grape-Nuts and ESPN's Kenny Mayne arm you with talking points for how to score a deal on a used car in this episode of The Guy's Manual.

HOST KENNY MAYNE
Okay America, raise your hand if
you like buying a brand new car
that will depreciate 25% in value
the moment you drive it off the
lot. Everyone else, follow along as
I ease our friend Gary here into
the unseemly world of pre-owned
vehicles.
Gary needs himself a second set of
wheels. But rather than mix it up
with an oily salesman, he's decided
to go straight to the source.
Sure, buying from a private owner
can be a dicey proposition. But
it's also where the sweetest deals
are. And you can stay in the
driver's seat so long as you follow
these simple nuggets of wisdom.
Bargains favor the prepared, Gary.
The seller will try to manipulate
you any way he can...

CHAD
This baby made the Kessel run in 6
Parsecs. She's systematic,
hydromatic, she's greased lighting.

GARY
Why don't I just give you the check
and you fill in the amount?

KENNY MAYNE
Easy there, Gar.
Don't get caught in the headlights
or some other familiar metaphor
involving cars. Know the blue book
value of the vehicle you fancy.
Come armed with information and
you'll be less susceptible to Jedi
mind tricks and more likely to pull
off some of your own. The low-ball
for instance.

GARY
What do I look like, Richie
McMoneypockets? I'll give you 1250.

CHAD
2200 and I peel off the Dukakis
sticker.

GARY
1350 and you keep whatever's in the
glove compartment.

CHAD
Just the summer sausage and I throw
in some blinker fluid.

GARY
There's no such thing as blinker
fluid.

CHAD
Says you!

KENNY MAYNE
Little side rule. Owners will use
everything in their bag of tricks
to jack up the price. Don't be
afraid to retaliate.

MILES
But with no car, who'll drive me to
the center for my treatments?

GARY
I'm sorry little man, it's in God's
hands now.

CHAD
I'm afraid I'll have to hold firm.

KENNY MAYNE
Don't worry, you can still come out
on top so long as you remember the
most important rule of all: Be
prepared to walk away

GARY
I'm more of a moped guy anyway.
Gary and Miles begin to walk inside. Chad blocks their path.

CHAD
Okay, okay, ya got yourself a deal.
I think we're gonna be lifelong
friends. I mean that.

KENNY MAYNE
I'm sure he does. Until next time,
enjoy being a man who gets the
tough things done.
