Default Car sale rant.....

.....So here'* the story. I have my S10 up for sale for $750 firm. I had a interested buyer that wanted to come look at it. He told me in his E-mail "I have $750 cash in hand and will bring a trailer". So I was like "Alright!" Well he showed up. Not more than THREE seconds after he got out of his truck, he looked at the S10 and said "300 bucks." I was like "WHOA NOW, you told me you were coming to buy it and had $750 cash in hand." He said "Yeah, but I didn't say I was gonna BUY it for $750." So I said, "Well why did you tell me that you had $750?" So then he has the nerve to hand me this 300 dollars and said, "Well? Where'* the title? I want it." I said "Not for $300, buddy, I told you I was FIRM on the price of $750." SO, then this guy gets totally pissy with me and starts YELLING at me, not arguing, YELLING! So I told him "You got 10 seconds to get the F*** off of my property or I am calling the cops." So he left. I swear some people, WHY would he tell me that he had $750, and then offers me $450 lower than what I am asking??? The guy acted like the truck was a POS, I mean come on, it only has rot on the cab corners and one bed wheelwell, and didn't even look at the truck for 3 seconds. Sorry, but I know what my truck is worth.

Oh yeah, this guy PISSED me off, especially when he said "WELL, where'* the title? I want the truck," The yelling is what set me off, NO ONE has the right to come on my property, look at the truck for 3 seconds, and offer me $450 lower than what I am asking, and then YELL at me. That is total BS. I should have called the cops.

Vital, he'* trying to sell his cars to buy mine. I will have him sign a contract preventing him from selling it for two years.

Yeah, plus the situation the truck put me was BS. It fell apart 2 weeks after I bought it. Go figure. I have the worst luck. And yes I plan to keep the upcoming bonne for at least 2 years.

But yeah, the guy just totally peed me off. I am still really peed at the time.

I had an awesome experience selling my Olds. It was the first car I tried to sell by myself. I listed it in the local paper for $2200, and the first day it was in the paper, a guy called my already at 1:00 in the afternoon to look at it. He came, took it for a drive, asked what my lowest price was, which I replied $2000, and after about two minutes he took it.
