So he buttons down his sneer and activates an ingratiating smile. ‘20,000 cash, sir. particular of supply, in fact. ’ ‘Of course,’ says Moonie, all of sudden joyful. ‘How a lot will you supply me for the Lincoln? ’ He nods in the direction of the Pimp’s Motor that's parked simply open air and this does wonders for the salesperson.
