Not surprising at all. Far too many fools trying to game the classic car thing. It smelled like fish when it first listed with it's vague details. The guy sounded like a kook. An out of touch Californian with a weird sense of entitlement. Insanity bolstered by a childish belief that if he does not get his way. well damn you all as he makes idle threats to destroy the car so no one else will own it. Like that is motivation to deal with his insanity and over pay in order to save a poor BMW from pending doom. He should take it to a cliff and hold an auction, if no one bids to his desired amount, then roll it off the edge. Hopefully with him behind the wheel.
Typical around these parts, He states in his description the following:
"I drive this car constantly and hate to part with it, but honestly I am tired of it. Seriously, I know what this car is worth, but I will trash it if nobody buys it. Somebody will miss a good deal!"
I have seen and heard in-person many times this unrealistic expectation of an owner/sellers who will say they would rather junk it than sell it for less than they want. Why not just do it already or list the buy it now price and stand firm.
but what do I know, according to Ryan I'm just bitter. 🙂
