What is it with people who, when they see a car for sale they continually drive prices of cars down on forums?
I`ve not noticed it on here or any other US forum really so it must be a UK thing. Ive had loads of cars and been on all the relevent forums and theres always the same miserable, tight holed bastards with comments like "Oh you won`t get that money" or "prices are falling mate, you`ll be lucky" or the old classic ........"I`ve seen them as low as $$$ you`re way too expensive".
Usually they drive the shittest budget variant of that model or a ******* shed. Bits held with duck tape and cheap *** tyres. you know, the "I cant afford to service my car, because of family commitments etc".
Personally I think you get what you pay for. A babied 17000 mile one owner garage car for $10000 or a 98000 mile, tired and ragged to death, decalled up `days of thunder` wannabe for $5000. Its a personal thing but if you can only afford a wreck then don`t ******* knock the guy with the nicer car.
I had a Type R Accord once which I paid a wee bit over the odds for. The guy that owned it from new was a ******* fruitcake and wouldn`t use it in the wet and it just got polished. I had that car for a year and it looked, drove and smelled like new. I sold it and got my money back. Some other fanny said "You paid waaaaaaaaaayyyy to much there mate". I got mine for x amount less. His 5 owner shitbox needed a gearbox rebuild and new suspension costing thousands. Still, the dumb bastard thought he got a better deal than me.
Sorry for the rant
. Just some fudgepackers on the British Mustang owners club continually telling people how Stangs are worthless. Funnily enough one of the `great bargains he mentioned needed a gearbox AND ******* clutch.
Anyway peace. I`m having a whisky.
