Well as many of you have prob heard by now.This trade deal, didnt go thru. The guy drove for 30 hrs, from Yuma,got here, brought him and his non english speaking "mech" friend inside the house for Biscuits/gravy and coffee/scrambled eggs. Let John look at all my documentation on New mtr and specs,dyno results, carb rebuild/mods to fit size of mtr etc,etc.. Went out to my heated shop to uncover my 56 for his inspection. WOW!!! His MECH ripped/picked it apart???? I never advertised it as a "10" show car, but an updated older resteration. He with drew the bag of 100,s and wanted to trade straight across, which I declined,but gave him a very reasonabl counter offer,which he immediately dismissed. He swung around and out the door,waited to shake my hand and was gone. I was in SHOCK.. My roomie Donna said I should have just traded him. Afterwards, I thought so too. But too late. He left no time to digest what just happened. 30 hrs later, nast rude comments ,showed up on my FB profile/time line. Than the big insults along with my add appeared. Very disturbing ,and I immediately notified FB and he was blocked and banned I think. He posted that slanderious message along with my add to many other 4 sale/trade sites. Many who knew me, deleted his remarks,banned him and notified me to do some thing?? Didnt have a clue as to what I could do. A crazy deal, and a big waste of time and money for this guy John N Lisa Fleming. ???

Kinda makes you wonder if that wasn't his plan all along. Straight trade and if that doesn't work walk away, but the mechanic part is the worst to me. When I look at a car I look and I make my own decision, I don't want someone elses opinion clouding my judgment. With that guy bringing a mechanic he probably doesn't even know his own car. Someone else is tuning it and telling him what parts to put on it so it will run the way they think it should run. Its a cool car but I think a better deal will come out of it.

They were speaking spanish, so couldnt understand them at all. I sure wanted that car, need some up grades, and would have been worth more, but stuff happens for a reason they say.

Sadly not everyone is honest in today's world. Something was definitely wrong with both of them and maybe you can consider yourself lucky that the deal didn't go thru! So many scammers around that just want to screw with people.
