Dont you HATE it when this happens....

So I am looking around at cars for sale as I do from time to time.... I run across an 04 Mystichrome Cobra with 4500 miles on it.... I would so buy it if I had a garage space to spare.... oh well maybe I will low ball him to see what gives... worth a shot I guess.

Dont you hate it when you cant find crap when you want to and when you are not looking you find ANYTHING you want...

It could be worse.

My dream car has always been a '69 429 Boss, but with what they are worth, I'd happily settle for a '69. One day driving, I spot a '69 with a "for sale" sign on it parked off a main street in a not-so-good neighborhood. I stop and check it out, and call the number. That guy says he wants $5K, and I talked him down to $4,500 over the phone.

I told him it was mine, and I immediately go to the bank to pull out the money. I call him a bit over an hour later, and he asks me: "Didn't you just take the car on a trailer?"

Apparently, someone else called a bit after me, and he though it was me, and sold him the car. :

To this day, I hate that man. The car was PERFECT, with original tires (probably replicas, but whatever), original iron wheels with hubcaps, a 351C, a it was a 4-speed if I remember correctly. No rust, a more than decent interior, with all numbers matching. It was the deal of a lifetime.

Re: Dont you HATE it when this happens....

yupp... happens all the time.

I found an 04 Mystichrome too when B was on his Sonic Blue rampage... I will do almost anything to get one of those. When it comes to something he wants, it's in the garage the next day.. Me? never.

BAH.

yeah Brian, I hate that so much. I ended up realizing I could've gotten a GT after I got my v6...

Re: Dont you HATE it when this happens....

Same thing happened to me when I first started looking for cars. This older lady I cut grass for had a 65 fastback with the 2v 289. Auto, caspian blue, mint interior, outside was clean, really nice car.

It was her husband's who bought and sold tons of mustangs and cougars in his day. He had alzheimers and was going to a nursing home and she was selling the house, so she just wanted to get rid of it. Was gonna sell it to me for $6700. A guy from illinois who vacationed down the street knew the old man had alzheimers, and talked him into selling the car to him for $4300 when she wasn't around. Never saw the guy around town after that.

Pissed me off that he screwed them out of some money and me out of a nice car.
Never found another 60's era mustang in that condition for that price...so i ended up with the 03.

Brandon, I have plenty of garage space if you want to store it here for a while... You can come up on the weekends to see it.

Re: Dont you HATE it when this happens....

i wish i had a garage. or a house for that matter.

im hoping the recession continues a bit longer so i can save for 20% down... because 20% for a house in dc/nova is a mini fortune.

I, too, am starting to get into the house market. I hate renting, it's just throwing money away.

Re: Dont you HATE it when this happens....

Yeah, this happened to me today. I was coming home from school when I spotted an 02 silver GT sitting at a buy here/pay here lot. I stop in, test drive it, it runs good, yadda yadda, and they want 7k for the car. *sigh*

Re: Dont you HATE it when this happens....

I was in Gatlinburg for the MCA show. This guy has a '73 Mach 1 that he just wanted to get rid of. It had a 351W, auto, burnt orange with black stripes. Not in the best shape, but decent.

$2k.

Had to pass.
