thats fucked up. the guy did put "Best offer" in the ad which can go either way. i bet he ended up wanting more money once he saw how much interest there was.

I think it went to Mike Collins of Meathead racing. He just posted on another site that he picked up an 1992 black, hardtop, tan seats, BBS rims and frontal damage.

This scenario isnt really unusual or unexpected....when someone is pretty much giving a car and/or parts away you have to be the first there with cash and not spend any time thinking about it.

yeah well the guy made a deal with brad.. i agree, first with cash, however i told brad to call back and pick it up that night, he called back ten minutes after first agreeing on a price and day/time to meet and never got a hold of him.

I know what you mean.
Its not the 'nice' way to do biz...its just par for the course in my experience, especially if youre trying to buy from any distance or schedule a meet or trip etc and there is someone on the scene with cash. Sellers that give stuff away will generally do so to the first person they see with cash...regardless of who they talked to or 'made deals' with previously. I have been on both sides of that as a buyer.

Yeah, so I told the guy i'd pick it up sunday and he said he'd send me pictures that night. I called him back like 10 minutes later to inform him I'd show up today. He never called me back. I'd imagine that he ended up getting a higher offer and then ignoring me. He's a piece of ****, and unfortunately for him I now have his work number and reverse looked it up
