I think my disdain goes back to my grandfather's 1967 442. He bought it brand new off the showroom floor, had everything, window sticker, two cancelled checks that he paid for the car with, all the hanger tags, manuals, everything. It was left to me from my dad and although I was poor on cash...real poor, I was determined to make that car just like it was when new when I was in a better place financially. It ran great, low miles, etc. At a very hard time in my life I sold it to my brother for a measley $1,200.00 only because he said "I really need a car right now" He knew I needed the money but I undersold it to him with the caveat that I get to buy it back because I wanted to keep it in the family. I even let him pay me 600 up front and make payments
He sold it a few months later at a huge profit..then he "paid it off".
Ever since then I have nothing but rage for the "sad stories" and the "I want to fix her up" BS whenever a giveaway priced car comes along. I get it ALL THE TIME on my gun sale pages. "I'm a poor military vet that needs a gun, will you let me have it for $$" Only so they can flip it the next day.
I'm with Rich. I wouln't mind seeing someone who really wants a D to fix up get it at a good price, but these people crawling out of the woodwork for this one just piss me off because I know their true intentions based solely on their history (make that lack of history) here on this forum.
After seeing those updated pics, thats a 11-12k car ALL DAY LONG! It would not suprise me to see that thing go on ebay for 14 to 15k with good pics and a well written description.
