    I understand what your saying. But sometimes it never hurts to ask. I traded my chassis truck for a monoshock dragster a few months ago and the seller had trades marked as no. I still asked if he might be interested in a trade and he replied that he was and we traded. I can see where your coming from, but is it that hard to say no and thanks for the interest in my ad. You would be extremely lucky to have the perfect trade from the first guy that emailed you. In my opinion, alot times if someone asks if you would trade for a less expensive item, they're looking for a counteroffer.
    My grandfather used to say its easier to ask for forgiveness than permission............. :lol: :lol:

    Wife made me sell and remodel our house 10 years ago. Everybody got too fast anyway. It got to the point I didnt have enough money to try to set any track records. I'd like to find it though. Its suppose to be in south Texas. I'd sure like to get it back. I didn't realize how many people liked it until I got rid of it. Wife said I had to sell to spend moneys on our house, but I think she was worried I hurt myself in it. Where are you racing at now? Are you still in Carlsbad? Did ya'll ever get that track in Carlsbad up and going again? Check out my profile and see my truck and dragsters. Its not what my Vette was but I think its won me more races. When you get old you have to trade speed for rounds won.

    I am always glad to get trade offers, as long as it is not a Sidekick with a 383 in it wanting $25,000. trade value or a bone stock 54 Chevy wagon with 6 cylinder needing restored. Those 2 people will wear you out on offers.

    Goes with the turf, just be polite about it . You never know who might be 'testing' you for how you relate to folks. Might be a real player......
