Just met another idiot!

Saturday AM a friend from here called and wanted to see if it was okay to show my Chevelle to his brother in law from back east. I said sure and they came up and I backed it out for him to see. He wanted to see the paper work and etc, realized the rarity of the color and the frame off resto. He asked if it were for sale and I said maybe. I told him it would be north of 40 if I did. He looked at me and said he could buy ones just like it all day long in OK for around 15. Then he asked me if I had any guns for sale. I advised him that it was probably time for him to leave while he was still able.

I have never had the balls to be that way but I know one guy that does and it is simply amazing some of the deals he comes up with.

Re: Just met another idiot!

So he can buy them all day long at 15 grand eh? Tell him that while he's picking & choosing these so-called Chevelles to grab you one while he's at it at that price.
Jeez, even project cars aren't cheap when you are talking about 1967 SS396 Chevelles.


I doubt any of those so-called 15 G Chevelles are anywhere as nice as yours.

As my dad used to say. "they walk among us". Of if the person was an major idiot, he'd say "there goes one of god's noble creatures"

Iíd be more upset with your ďfriendĒ, he would have, should have known how this guy was going to act. This behavior doesnít exist in a vacuum. Iíve know people like the brother in law. I donít think they realize what they are doing. They tend to be egotistical ďknow it allísĒ that never make a mistakes. The guys like that tend to think everyone elseís car, or whatever, is worth a fraction of its value, yet inflate the value of everything they own when it comes time to sell. Itís best to ignore them and not take it personally, donít have anything to do with them, and never talk about ďbusinessĒ if you canít avoid being around them.

Re: Just met another idiot!

Hope your friend's sister doenst suffer the same "calculus". "got any guns for sale?" gets the GTFO reply.

PS post a pic of the car for the rest of us, the noble end of the Chevelle clan. RP is GORGEOUS!

Re: Just met another idiot!

That guy has a low sense of self worth and is jealous of your car. Its so sad when that happens, you could of both been enjoying the beauty of your car instead of dealing with the buzz kill of insult..

He probably just forgot about the 27 years that have passed since a car like that was $15k in 1992.
