GM sets tomorrow as the launch of a pilot site with eBay (EBAY) to sell cars and trucks in California, in cooperation with about 225 dealers there. The move marks the first time that eBay will offer new vehicles for sale. The Atlantic's Derek Thompson says it's high time that haggling moved from the showroom to the laptop.

    We have heard this internet car-buying story before, and it was much ado about nothing.

     

    Why do I suspect that this is just another trick to get me into the showroom-- so that a salesperson can work me over ?

    Well, I certainly hope they succeed in moving car sales to the internet...frankly, I would have bought a new car years ago but for the prospect of having to deal with salesmen and their managers...I still remember the last time I shopped...the salesman offered me a "deal" but, of course, his manager just wouldn't agree, etc, etc...one can only hope there is a special place in hell for car salespeople....
