Re: if only i had the money
fista mate you need to read again if you think am envious lol but thanks for your input.... Think i might have to start a new thread and find out what other people think of the current price to pay for a good sud... iv been caught out twice last year by sellers who describe their suds as immaculate, fine example, original etc etc etc... put them up for sale at between £3/4k, put some nice pictures up showing the car to look good. You travel half way across the country (£50 worth of petrol wasted) expecting to see a really nice sud and it turns out to be a shed (if id wanted a shed id have gone to homebase lol) i just wish people would be realistic when advertising a car, i always am...
heres a classic example!!!
A sud fan id met at the national last year (and kept in touch with) called me and asked if id meet a friend of his from coventry to go see a sud in newcastle. This guy (who turned out to be dave atkins for those who know of him) travelled all the way up to newcastle with his son (who the car was for), picked me up along the way and we went to view an apparently immaculate low milage sud... dave and his son had seen this car advertised for 3.5K months before, the guy was adamant he wanted the asking price... Anyway after a second call months later they agreed a prelim price of 2.5k. We got there only to find a car that had sat on the drive for a couple of years it was filthy, the boot was full of dirty junk, the interior was mouldy, one quater had been repaired and the paint was like orange peel, the engine and ancillaries where rusty as hell, basically it was a mess. It was a low milage car alright but thats no good if its sat in a damp garage or outside for most of the time lol Funny thing is the guy was disgruntled when we walked away lol The guy had bought the car for his son from steve parry for 3k... His son wasn't interested so it had just sat there waiting to be sold... The guy was obviously desperated to get his money back, its probably still there now rusting away as we speak lol
but what a waste of a sunday and a load of petrol for dave, not to mention the dissapointment on his sons face :0(
anyone else got any horror stories??? lol
