Once I found the place where I saw the used ford vans for sale sign I approached with caution. I wanted to make sure that I handled everything just right because my plan was to try to get the owner of the dealer to donate it to the youth group. I sized up the guy who appeared to be in charge and he noticed me doing it, I quickly looked down to the floor not prepared to be too aggressive but realizing that I might have to be. I walked around the lot some more checking out some ford escort vans and wondering what my chances were for pulling this off. I did not really tell anyone about my plan, I was hoping to surprise them by just bringing it over. I was not much of a salesperson usually, but when I really believed in something, I could sell just about anything. It did not take long for the man to approach me and he was all smiles. He asked if I was interested in one of the ford escort vans or were there other used ford vans I was considering. I explained that I liked several of them and was not sure it mattered all that much about the features or options available on the used ford vans as he began to explain them to me. He seemed confused as to why I would not care about the features or options of the ford escort vans and asked what I was looking for exactly.
I explained that I was in search of free used ford vans of any color, model or type. He smiled and shook his head, telling me that he was sure that something was different about me when he saw me walk in to the dealership. I told him about the kids from the youth group who were trying to be good and stay out of trouble by participating in decent activities designed to be fun but wholesome so that the children would learn values and respect for themselves in addition to hanging out with their friends. There were several trips that the adults would like to plan and allow them to do if only they had a form of transportation that could accommodate a bunch of kids. I added that they would perform more volunteer work in the community if we could only find a kind and generous enough individual to donate one or two used ford vans to a worthy cause. That part had not been discussed but I did not think anyone in the group would have any trouble with it. The man then asked why it had to be used ford vans, why not some other manufacturer and I explained because he only had used for vans on the lot.
