"No thanks, (insert your own price) gets it".

There is the end the negotiating process, unless Brian was to buy it.

Having said that, I will say I have been a smartass before to offers, but it must be a ridiculously low offer.
To offer a man $12k for his '69 Camaro (mine) deserves a "kiss my a**".

Just my thoughts as I sit here all bored with cabin fever.
i hear ya Rudy...i agree My Friend...now if you want to let me ride that New Hog...just holler..i am digging that new ride ya got...lucky dawg !

lol..i heard that Steve....i agree there is a Big Difference in the 1/2 price thing when your comparing 10k vs 1500...i sold My 63 vette lets just say over the 60k mark this past September..i did come off several thousand dollars but i would have kindly declined 50k etc ( but would have never blocked that person and trust me i got some offers below that 50k range but i treated those people with all the respect that i treated my Buyer)... i also threw in a set of new slicks cause i seen some bad economy issues rolling down the pipe..it was a good sale for both me and the buyer i do not have a problem saying he ( the buyer)probably ( i know) has a lot more money than i do..but i can say i am 60k plus richer than what i was after the sale was complete...
So the $1600 blower deal was not that Big of a deal..its a run of the mill blower( nothing speacial) and i know you were ribbing me with your Last post ..i am a good sport ( and you are from clinch Mtn..lol)...but what i did mean was that ED would need my Money loooong before i would need his ever so common Blower...lol



i think you made a wise decision to accept the $7500 on your vega

as i have said in the past..we are dead in a Recession and Money just ain't changing hands like it was.....so it might come back to haunt some folks turning up their Nose at good cash offers.Money you turn down today you might need tomorrow..

thanks for all you guys replies.




yeah but i done went and spent it and then some on a rail/dragster!!LOL!!i need a trans/stall/headers before racing season,but the wife is about to kick my yoohoo!!LOL!!,,steve

anytime you want man! Come on up and take it for a ride, bring the wife, take her for a ride, then she will be hooked!

Seriously, it has brought me a problem that I am not sure how to handle.
Wesley, my nine year old has had a couple dreams that something bad happened to me on the Harley, he wakes up before the outcome is revealed in the dreams. He has asked me on more than one occasion to not ride it,,,,jeeeeez,,,,,,kids!! I am not a believer in much that I can't see, but, you never know. You would be absolutely blown away at what Jay drew for me when he was around 8 years old.........I will post it in the military quotes thread.

Damn Ken i may have directed this to you, and got mixed up on the stories of the 2005 accident. I'm sorry but i just don't like street bikes. Now i raced in the desart from 1975 to 1980 and then went to trials riding, but never the street. I then lived in Phx. and had many friends who were bikers. But never owned a street bike, and never will, i've seen too many people crippled from them, and being 70 yrs. old in 2 weeks i want to go out in my race car, or a natural death, not programmed by some ediot motorest who's not watching out for me.

Zip.
Zip, Ken,
I don't care that the story got mixed up, and I know Ken doesn't either. I am very happy that ya'll think enough of me to leave your opinion about the bike and Wesleys' dream on the table. Ya'll oldsters, (for lack of a better term and said with the utmost of respect) always give me a bit to think about. I do not necessarily fear death, but what I do fear, in all honesty is leaving this earth with my sons' still needing me to guide them.

I waited for many years to get this damn thing, now I am not sure I really want it. Man, life sure is funny :!: :!: :!: :!:

Rudy' just be careful, pretty scooter by the way. I'd like to have a hardtail chopper, but I'd kill myself on it. I had a 750 honda chopper when I was young, but never a real motorcycle. I do go down good though, it's my only talent on a motorcycle, is I go down real pretty, and OFTEN. ops: ops:

Zip,
