|Craig and I pushed it out of the garage and I washed it with windex,|
It looked pretty nice!
To go on E-Bay Motors with lots of pictures, a higher asking price, an auction with a reserve price, and wonder about dealing with people from out of the area, and shipping it across the country!
Or to put is at a reasonable cash only price, on Craig's list, and see what happened.
I wrote a quick Craig's list ad within two hours I had a call. After we talked for a while, the guy said he could come to see it this morning.
However, after I hung up I realized I had given him the wrong information.
I had listed it wrong on Craig's list too. I didn't have his phone number.
I said it was a '69. It's not. It is a '79.
h In the morning, he called when he was ready to start, and I, with some embarrassment, told him my error.
I felt so dumb! He seemed disappointed but he said, he's come look at it, and would probably be over in about an hour.
After three hours had passed I figured he was a no-show. I was a bit disappointed because he seemed so nice, and I consider being a no-show quite rude.
But then I heard a car in the drive and it was he and his wife, complete with a flat bed trailer.
The man looked it over very carefully and asked many questions.
He was cool, but then so was I.
Then he offered me much less than my asking price.
I said no.
I didn't need to sell it today.
Then he came up half way to my price.
I said that if it wasn't the absolutely first day I had it for sale I might take it, but not today.
I suggested he call me in a couple of weeks.
He said he would pay the asking price.
I think it was fair.
|Onto the truck it went!|
|Goodbye little car|
I'm a little sad. But also pleased it went so easily and to people I felt good about.
I actually got some painting done today too!
