    I called yesterday and made 2 offers . Seller declined and would not tell me a price he wanted for the car. I think this is a case of probe the Delorean community for offers to set a floor for auction. It'll be on B.A.T. in A few weeks I am sure. Good luck ��

    Dude... if you're selling the car, post a price.

    I remember someone saying this very thing to a mod a few years ago. He simply put "one million dollars OBO" and that is how mods circumvent the rules put in place for us common folk.

    As I have been recently been reminded by the moderators about the rules of the for sale section forum, I just wanted to include a link to the rules below so you can update your listing with some additional information.

    For sale section rules are here:

    Nothing was circumvented -- A price is a price. Apparently, you don't understand that the rule is to protect the "the common folks" (and site). Nor that posts in the For Sale/Wanted section that don't express a true interest in buying or selling are not allowed.
    Enough BS!
    Since your post blatantly violates the rules, along with an increase in frequency and BS, this is the last warning you will receive before all of your posts wind up sitting in the moderation queue until someone spends time approving them. If you aren't showing a true interest in buying or selling the items, don't post in the For Sale/Wanted section. (There are exceptions -- BS, jokes, OT, etc. are not.)

    I wasnít aware that I declined your second offer. This is news to me. The way I remember our 20 minute phone conversation was me carefully explaining every last detail of the car and where I was at with it. I was very professional in telling you that I would be coming to a final asking price on the car within a day or two as I wrapped my head around all the information that influences it. Correct me if Iím wrong but one of the last things said was you saying take as long as you need, few days a week or what ever and let me know what you decide. Not sure where the change of heart took place or the reason you have found to bad mouth me after our positive phone call. Strange that I would receive no follow up text or pm since our call two days ago before coming on here to say this. As I said more then once on the phone you were the first person in line for the car. Itís clear you no longer want that to be the case.

    To everyone else that has been helpful I do appreciate it. I made it to my shop this evening and took higher quality photos of the car that will include all key areas of
    The car and help answer lots of questions that I left on the table unintentionally. I will be uploading them from camera to laptop this evening and will be posting them by tomorrow.

    "Strange that I would receive no follow up text or pm since our call two days ago before coming on here to say this"

    I have sent several un answered texts since our phone call. Also I know you have received several offers from others and I also know that you still haven't posted a price on this car in the for sale add.

    Also if you are gonna come on here and try and sell a car have a price in mind before you waist every one's time. I made you a very generous offer as a starting point, with full intent on going up with it if you at least had the respect to give me a price you were looking for and got the old "well I am not sure what I want for the car line". I then said well tell me what you want and I will buy the car if we agree and got the um hmmum I'll think on it .

    I know others on here that have offered and have gotten the same type of comments.

    This is a very tight community and small. So you better believe that when a car like this pops up and people start making offers we are all talking behind the scenes. You aren't the first to come on here and claim you have intent to sell a car but are really just using the DMC community to guage how much you can get for a car before you send it to auction.

    I may be the only guy who offered on this car to post on this thread currently but none the less....

    It's fine. Good luck with the sale. I'm out

    The owner has reached out to me . Turns out it was a miss communication due to both of us being in bad cell areas. He is very sincere and is going to sell the car .
