    Just a quick update. We are in the middle of what has turned into 2 weeks of TEXT & WAIT. Seller counter offered then I countered him. I think we are close. I'm not going to let it go without a fight.

    Re: Tell me it's too much money for this car.

    The latest in my quest for a Coupe.... He is at his bottom dollar. It only took 6 weeks. I am going to cave and pay $3,300 if it is in as good a shape as it appears. It's hard to negotiate ove the phone, text & pics, but its a three hour drive and a day off of work. If it happens I'll post pics when it does.

    I agree.
    If it turns out to be as claimed.
    That is a good price.
    Good luck

    Sounds good if it's clean.

    Re: Tell me it's too much money for this car.

    People should be able to pass a test before posting an automobile ad on Craigslist. This is the second time I've driven to see a "One owner car in VERY good condition." He was a better photographer than he was a car salesman.
    Things that were completely in need of replacement:
    Vinyl top
    Headliner
    All rubber seals
    Carpet
    Dash and the seat covers were toast.

    The radio, speedometer, antennae, cruise control, AC did not work.
    The car was a great 30 footer. It was just a hard used, used car. I didn't expect a show car, but I asked him the condition of these things before I ever left the house. Well, better luck next time.

    I hope you did a big steaming burn out with the Seller on the test drive.

    That is a really sad ending to a good tale.
    You had a great day out though?

    Re: Tell me it's too much money for this car.

    Great day with one of my best friends. I was just very disappointed. I didn't tell the wife till after I returned. Figured it would be stupid to go through an argument over another car if it did work out. Still had a small tiff with her, but nothing like I would've. Time to start looking again. The friend has his late grandfathers 1975 Coupe Deville that he has offered me for around 2k..... It never ends does it.

    Re: Tell me it's too much money for this car.

    Now you're talking my kind of Cadillac!

    Sorry about your bad luck on the car trip.
    In the end the argument you had today will prepare her for the next one arriving.
    I have been divorced for many years, but still remember the "small incremental method" of negotiating with a spouse! Well played sir! Well played indeed....
