Default Anybody interested?

Might not be allowed here, if it's not please feel free to delete it and not ban me .

So I can't sell my 96 explorer, guy wants to trade for his red 96K mile 1993 non-turbo MR2 that looks pretty f-ing clean. I would think about keeping it except for the fact that I need to get rid of some vehicles. If I got it would there be any interest in it from here? In Virginia obviously.

Either....but I was wondering mainly if I went through with the trade if anyone would be interested int he MR2...figure it's easier to unload than the explorer, but it's also a bad time of year (at least getting close to the bad time of the year) for cars like this.

Honestly, I think you will have an easier time selling the MR2.

Yea, I know I would....except that the guy is ignoring my calls/texts/PM's now. I ******* hate when people do that ****. If you changed your mind, already sold it, don't want the explorer anymore, that's fine, but when I can see you've signed in and have confirmed "read receipts" for the PM's I've sent asking when/where you want to meet up and you ignore phone calls, I get pissed. I'm just going to keep bugging the **** out of the guy now until he tells me no, just because he pissed me off. (am I over reacting? It's been ~24 hours since I've heard from him. When we last talked he said he'd call back in a couple hours to set up a time/place to meet up.)

Digging through the site for his old posts, he's only 18/19. I thought he sounded mid-late 20s on the phone, but I guess I was wrong. It's people like this that gives kids a bad name. WTF does he need a "truck" for his "landscaping business" anyway at 18? Leaf blower must be too big to fit on the basket on the front of his bike

I flushed him out of hiding with a post in his for sale thread saying "Bump for a flaker who doesn't return calls/pm's/etc..." got a PM within minutes. now I gotta decide if I wanna tell him to **** off or deal with him long enough to get the car. Kinda makes me question his overall character and whether or not the car is as good as he says though..
