I am still working out the deal for selling the 89 Bandit II.  That should be about another week, then the 68 Firebird will make it to my garage.

Well, it has been two weeks and they guy selling the car NEVER calls me back.  I have called and talked to his wife about 12 times over the past two weeks and talking, and calling, and talking more, but her husband has YET to call me back to sell me the car.  The last time I talked to her was on Wednesday and she told me "He will give you a call this weekend".  Well, here it is Sunday Night and the guy STILL has never bothered to call me.  So, at this point in time, if he ever does call me back, I will tell him to take his car and shove it where the sun doesn't shine.  I am sick of calling him to try and buy the car.

I don't know if the car is still for sale, he never calls me back.  Here is the story I am getting.  When we first saw the car for sale, it had no price.  When we talked with the guy, he said he wanted $20,000 for the car.  Well, after talking with him and such, he said he wanted to get $12,000 for the car.  When a friend went to look at the car in person and he described it to me over the phone, I told him that it was only like a $6,000 car because of the work needed to it.  Well, he got the car professionally appraised and it was right where I figured it would be which is way less (50% less) than his $12,000 asking price.  His wife said that they would not take anything less than the appraisal value.  So, I was prepared to give them what the car was appraised for because that is what his wife said.  They said they needed to sell the car and have it gone.  I tried and tried to buy the car, but the guy never would call me back.  I talked to his wife a dozen times and she always said, "Well, give him a call tonight"... blah, blah, blah.  Then, when I talked with her on Wednesday, she said "He will call you this weekend".  Well, this weekend came and went with no phone calls from him.  Well, I guess the guy still wants to try and get $12,000 for the car (because in his magical world he thinks it is worth that).  Since the guy never calls me back, he can keep his damn car and try to sell it himself.  He will be waiting a long time to get his asking price for the car.  And with the way the ecomony is going, I think he will be stuck with it for a while.  Serves him right for not returning my phone calls.

selling a car is really tough now. i've been trying to sell my 70 Chevelle SS454 for a year now, and i've had either people that are "low ballers", or people never show up when they say they are coming to look at the car.
in the condition the car is in, i should be asking $45 - $50,000 for it, but i'm only asking a lousy $35,000. which is quite low for that car in the condition it is in. i think it is because the economy is terrible, and people always want to get something for nothing.   :-\
