Re: AM I wrong in being disappointed?

click on 'seller' quotes in op for seller's quotes in op's wtb thread..

likely long gone, already up with different user name, or watching anonymously..

sad state of affairs all the way around and not easy for anyone including staff to deal with..

that's why I brought up itrader for vbulletin.. it's a conspicuous tag on every user's profile..

on other forums I log into that use that, it's very effective and constant reminder to everyone how that member deals..

conspicuous, fast, and easy to use and convenient links to each deal thread just a click away in a linear column in their profile.. some members won't even engage in larger deals until the other member has good ratings.. kind of like earning good credit, takes a little time of good dealings to earn trust.. no it isn't foolproof, but generally, folks with good dealing reputations will continue to do so.. but again, if a predator has the ill will to deceive someone for a big payoff, their itrader may be sacrificial to them to just hit and run..

and Liz and Josh, I apologize for being harsh, I was just angry about what happened.. my own integrity and honesty makes this type of deal repulsive and I overreacted and lashed out.. my apologies.. I have suggested activating itrader in previous benny sug threads [beneficial suggestions] but for reasons beyond my comprehension were shot down.. I'm woefully short of pm space because I store numerous deal conversations for future reference but happy to work with you both if I can help in any way.. won't eliminate these issues but it will help..

I started out with nothing - and I still have most of it

The OP offered it back to the seller at a loss of 5k if Im not mistaken. With an offer like that, anybody with with a character quality that remotely resembles a conscience would know that they just fully got over on the buyer. Me personally, I know that I wouldn't be able to sleep at night. Id be doing everything I could to try and work something out. Thats just me though and why I don't do deals this way. Im sure that there are likely a few others here that would feel horrible about doing another gear head like that let alone another member of this community.

I'm sure that even if the seller is aware of this thread, they likely don't give a crap. It's business as usual and just the way some go through life and will probably continue to do so.

It will take a while for the sting to wear off, but when it does, you'll be ready to make a clear decision on what you're gonna do with it. If you decide to keep it, Im sure you'll have more than a few members subscribed on the build. Myself included.

Good luck Bud! Don't be too hard on yourself, it won't get your truck built.

Don't be disappointed. It's a part of life. Heck I'm disappointed every time I unzip my pants.

Re: AM I wrong in being disappointed?

No way it is "rust free". This seller is very experienced. I'd be very surprised if they did not know the true condition of this vehicle.

Definitely not worth $25,000. Even if you go over budget it should be worth your investment. But that much work deserves some equity on your side when you are finished.

Rust is rust, I don't care where you are located or what they put on the roads in the winter.

Re: AM I wrong in being disappointed?

I have been following and kept out of it, but I agree with the others who posted that the seller should have agreed to refund the money and be done with it. It is not rust free, and I don't see how anyone could consider it rust free. But, I am just a weekend warrior and not much of an expert, so take it for what it is worth. Had it been me, and I would have never said that was a rust free truck, I would have worked it out with the buyer and refunded the money. It is the right thing to do in my mind. But what do I know, hell, I am Italian. LOL. Be safe all. RR
