I remember when I was buying a MR2, they were giving away a recliner and TV with any Toyota purchase. When it came to writing it the salesman asked if I needed a tv and recliner. I was like sure! He said do you need it? It was all marketing, if you didn't want it they took $700.00 off the price.
I'd guess it's worth giving a portable if it takes you off the fence. Besides all portables should be FREE.
I'd run all the 5k's and 10k's in town for fun. I ran 6 miles a day, 6 days a week back then. I weighed 175lbs...I WAZ Mighty back then.
I ordered blue, stick and they gave me a red one to drive until mine was to arrive. After a week they wanted the car back. After 2 weeks I got my deposit back. I went to KC and bought a new model 1986 Mazda RX7
Fun car had it until the first kid. Two seater with a very small rear seat.
