Holy Toledo. I hope no one does that to me. I wouldn't want to have to make that decision. $16k is about four more cheap rats tho.

I start to leave and this other guy pulls up, the first guy had called him. He looks it over and says he wants to buy it. I tell him I'm not finished with it and I'm not sure I want to sell it anyway. He says it's finished enough and how much?

I figured if I gave him some outrageous price he'd shut up and I could go finish my brake job. I told him again that I wasn't sure I wanted to sell it but if you want it for $16,000.00 I will sell it. The crazy guy gave me $500.00 and told me he'd see me tomorrow with the rest.

So I guess I'll be looking for a new project tomorrow, and now I'm thinking I screwed up!!
Holy crap! that is a good payday, obviously it is a great compliment to your work and build!

Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought the guy would
take it at that price.

Here's a couple of outside pics after the paint stripping.
Maybe the last pics.
Kinda sad I didn't get to finish it though.

The time to sell is when you have a buyer standing in front of you with a fist full of money
Congrats on the transaction
I'll be waiting on the new project
