$20k is a bit much if you ask me, but that's not factoring in the sentimental part.

Talk them down and see if they will throw in a plane ticket to get you there and drive that sucker home to avoid shipping...

Also OP, you know the history of your car. They want 20k for a car that was in a rear end collision, and has a repo on it with 45k+ miles? These right here are your weapons of negotiation. And do not under any circumstances tell them this was your car before, and now you want it back. They'll try their best to use it against ya.

Of course they are going to try and get asking price for it, However they still have leeway .. For one they tried to auction it recently and it did not sell. Two like they said they are deep into the car and its value is going to go down over time not up. Explain to them that you have the 15,000 witch is actually a reasonable offer and that you will take care of the shipping or will be down to pick the car up, Don't ask for a yes just continue with so what paper work do I need to fill out so we can make this happen. assume the sale and you will have your car back.

Well crap... I still think you can get them to lower the car down significantly. Probably down to 16,500. That car is not worth 20 grand. And you've got the tools to tear down their price. Perhaps they don't know that you know its been in an accident. Hopefully they change their tune when you bring it up.

I wonder why it didnt sell at auction? The past damage or their into it for too much money?

When are they supposedly calling you back?.. Probably didn't sell at auction because didn't hit the reserve price. They probably want more then what was offered. Witch doesn't mean 20k could be 14k but we will never know that.

I wasnt being hostile by any stretch I also told them I have all the damage paperwork which will make it hard to sell not to mention it was a repo....If necessary I will let them sit on it another month and see what happens. If they tried to auction it they obviosly wanna get rid of it for some reason and most likely its the past damage and repo against it and I am trying to use that to my advantage.

Leave them with your name and phone number. Tell them if they want to negotiate, to give you a call. Dont call them back. Wait at least a week. If they do not call, then they truly are serious about 20k. And will be holding onto that car for awhile.

Yeah I would leave them with one last msg. short and simple.
I am interested in the car. I obviously don't agree with the asking price but would be happy to work with you to find a reasonable price that works for the both of us. If you think we can make this work please give me a call at # or text me back and I would be happy to work something out.
then just wait.
That's my opinion but something like that is probably your best bet at this point unless your going to choke up 20k

Oh boy, the sharks can smell blood in the water...
It's crazy that they won't send all the pictures that a potential buyer might want.
These people sound kind of shady.
I wouldn't pay a dime more than 15k for that car and that includes the sentimental value.
Just keep after them and don't budge on your price.
It sounds like you may have time on your side.

They'll cave...

I just did what you said to do. Now a waiting game...dammit. But at the very least I can keep track of the car now and if I dont get it now I will get it one way or another, I wont stop until I do.

Yea they are betting on sentimental value, $15k is my limit and they pay shipping. They will get desperate sooner or later...I hope

another easy way is to buy a 2007 Mustang that is beat for cheap, Register it, Go steal your old mustang rite of the lot as they wont notice until morning when your long gone. Put your plates on that car throw the insurance in the glove box and rock it. How often have the Police ever checked your vin number when getting pulled over... they don't. jk jokes don't do that

yeah I was just reading reviews on them, not very reputable that's for sure.
That sucks that its your car and you would have to pay a lot to get it back. 20k out the door is a lot but I assume they are going to eat all the fees and taxes.

I cant beleive they would let me walk considering they have tried auctioning the car with no sale and no buyers and know I am a definte buyer...

Their arent any fees or taxes since im a out of state buyer.

Its amazing how attached you can become to a car even when it isnt the latest and greatest.

The good memories come from my daughter and me and was/is supposed to get that car when she is 16.

And the bad memories come from when I drove Phoenix night after night trying to find where my now exwife was at 4am in the morning and finally catching her at a motel 6 with some loser who works at Kohls department store and not being able to decide if I should whoop their asses or get back into my Mustang and drive away. I did the latter and sat in the parking lot and threw up from what I saw and how angry I was. So that Mustang has been through alot with me and I will get it back one way or another....

So you lost it in 2010. You don't know who and how much it was abused? Why not let it go and go buy another one that DOESN'T smell like the ex-wife?

Good Luck but I would bet they don't bend over for you.

The ex wouldnt even ride in it because she didnt like the color (Grabber Orange) and your right I have no clue what happened to it from 2010 until now. I do know it went from Phoenix to Minneapolis, MN and wound back up in California where it came from originally. I will figure out a way to eventually get it back (legally)...lol

Great story but I wouldn't give $20,000 for it. My fiancée bought her 2007 GT premium in March of 2010 for $19,300 with only 6,900 miles on it at a Toyota dealership. They must be smoking something pretty good if they think anyone is going to give $20,000 for that car.


I hope it works out for you.
