I know how car dealers are, they want retail for what they got and they want to give you nothing for your car. If you sell wholesale then I will take wholesale for my car, if you want retail for their car, then I want more than just a "Low ball price trade in" for my car, it don't work retail and wholesale as a deal. In other words, if your FGT is retailed at 270K and you want to buy a car at retail for 500K, and they only want to give you 150K and they still want 500K for their car, would you take that deal????? I bet not!
If someone want 260 for their car and I want 60 for my car, then I see it as I owe them 200, but if they want 260 and I want 60, and they want me to give them my car and 230? Thats when I say my famous line, "No guy, how much for ONE?"
I just don't want a car that is inflated and be expected to take a bath on my car. Thats all...
The bottom line is I am asking X amount for my car, yes if someone wants to buy it, I can deal, if someone has a car and we can make a deal then OK, but people got to give a little.....AND the people that do not want to give a little are the ones STUCK re-listing and re-upping their ads everywhere. The proof is on eBay, Hemmings, and carsdotcom.
Oh no problem! No offense taken. The problem I guess I am having is there are a few red cars, a few white cars, a few other color cars and they ALL look great, it took me many months just to finally say I want red or white Ford GT. LOL, my wife knows how I shop and how do you pick a 8K mile car and differenciate it from a say 9K mile car, that looks just as nice. If you can imagine, I hate to say this, but looking at pictures of different cars makes picking, "The One" very hard to do, as all of us want, to pick one that is a great fit. I know once I get one I will be very happy, I plan to drive it and keep it nice, heck, I will pinch myself many times just seeing it!
I actually would buy a FGT outright, I just have 2 cars that I am interested in selling. I put this post in this way, because I had about 3 people asking me about trading. I just bought a nice 1967 Shelby GT-350 and I want my collection to get just a little thinner now. Thus the 66 fastback and the 67 K-code fastback will go, not for the need of money, but for room! Those FGT's are wide and it makes them a little harder to fit in a thin spot on the garage! LOL
I will just wait in re-listville....I have been watching cars for over 6 months now and I still don't see a "sold" under completed sales. I am getting close as some are showing sings or getting ready to sell. My 67 is being offered for sale also, I put this in for trades to get some options, I did have 3 people interested in trade, but they did not want to really do something. Thats OK with me as I dont need the money, sure money is good for the personal hobby, but being fortunate, with not needing to sell one to buy one, I think it will work out for the best in the end.
