It's a free country, but to say I'm just a little pissed would be an understatement.  I'm so sick of people bleeding about how much they really "want" a car and it's the love of their life and then they have it for 3 weeks and flip it.
For 28 years this car had only two owners who are still best friends for over 30 years.  And now it's getting whored around on ebay.  flame
I really wish someone on this site would have approached me on the car...

IMO....once you sell a car you give up all say in what happens to it. Why sell it at all if you are worried what the next owner does? When mine are gone...even ones I loved I try not to even think about them any more. Like you say its free country...

What Chris is saying is the buyer lied to him about how much he wanted the car, when he had intentions of flipping it from the get-go. I totally understand how Chris feels... I would feel the same. It's not the fact he is selling it... heck, a dealer would do just that, its the b.s. about wanting one for so long, then selling straight away for the $$.

perhaps, if you list it for $10 and the buyer hands you $10
do you feel the same way if it's someone you know, and you took $9 under the impression the car would be going to someone not out to make a dollar on it?

That Sucks Chris!

Next time burn the car and get the insurance... flame
Then its gone and forgotten and the Dealers can sell Chevvies to each other... smilielol smilielol smilielol

You know I woulda bought your F8 Beauty in a heartbeat, but a messy divorce and no job, kinda wrecked that idea.

Back to 'plan A' build my F8 hemi clone 4-speed and no dealers or scumbacks will ever get to buy it, let alone make money on the backs on REAL Mopar Folks... 2thumbs 2thumbs 2thumbs
Then I will strap a solid fuel rocket to her ass and drive into a Ford/Chev dealership and tell the insurance company it was real hemi car and the j code vin, got buckled in the fire... shruggy

THE THROTTLE GOT STUCK, HONESTLY JUDGE.

Where's my MEDS??? Shocked

No! say it ain't true?  ....come on this is life, be it cars, car parts, houses, business, etc, etc, once you part with something you lose all control on it's destiny, perhaps the new owner is in a financial bind suddenly and the newest toy has to go?, perhaps he bought it without the old ladies "OK"? and it's now a case of the "car or me" syndrome, or perhaps the "freed up cash" the buyer used is now needed for a better vehicle or business deal?....

It's on Ebay for those, including the last owner to "rescue" if so desired from the clutches of the next "flipper"....my mantra is to never sell the processions that I cherish, that's for the courts or family members to do after my death

Ahhh ...so it's not that he sold it soon it's the fact that he had the ability to sell it for more than you did! No one made you accept his offer. It's a free market economy and that's what made you country what it is today. You sold it for what you wanted...so that's it as far as I'm concerned...and how I would think about it if I'd sold it. Buyers lie, sellers lie....we all know that. I've , how small we say "pushed the truth to the limit" on both occasions. Just move on....and make a better fist of selling the next one!

I learned my lesson on this once too. If its something i dont really need to sell ect i put a price on it that i have no regrets on selling it. like a fair price plus 30%. If it sells so be it. if it does not thats fine too.

My dream car is a C500. maybe one day i can trade a restored 70 r/t for a rusty c500 project and do it all over again lol.

I would have loved to make you an offer on this car, but sadly it was out of my possible price range. I do hate it when people cut someone a deal on a car and then see it being flipped shortly after.
When I just bought the second 500 last week I assured the seller that I will under no circumstances be selling the car anytime soon. Don't plan to ever sell either 500. May trade up for Daytona but odds are that's 5-10 years off.

Hi Chris,

I've seen this happen hundreds of times over the years with Car-Dealers.
I have guys phoning me up looking for genuine buyers rather than sell to the 'devils children'.
Its the way it is, unfortunately with 'done cars', they are outta the price range of most Folks.
Then the 'done-cars' are traded around the 'trade circuit' until it goes outta fashion and/or needs some TLC and its back with an enthusiast again! pity
This is not just a top-end car problem, its right across the board.

There's a Ferengi in every walk of life trying to make a quick buck outta someone's 'pride and joy'... brickwall

I have refrained from doing it myself and have had many opportunities to flip a Mopar, but my conscience is clear (I think)... scratchchin
Until I sell my C500 after nearly fifteen years, so not really a flip, more a flop... hah

Who would want a 'messed-up' 69-R/T Charger, as my mate calls her?
Filled in back-light and a crappy Coronet grille, STUCK ON with screws and fixed headlights, how NAFF!!! Roll Eyes

NO pleasing some FOLKS... eek

Thanks for that. I recall several people in the seventies -and even eighties -referring to the C500 as the "chepo" low-end model from their point of view -and at the time- they were not far off. slap
It was a change to a nice looking style and indeed was not intended to be an aesthetic improvement. lol

For example--I met a guy in a parking lot (late 70s) that had a nice RR and we chatted for a bit about chargers. He told me about a nice solid C500 that was in line to be cubed at an auto wrecking yard because it was one of the "cheep"/low end models.

Another C500 story.-- I pulled in to look at a 57 New Yorker that had a for sale sign on it. (I was driving my C500 and my guess it was 1982). A kid on a bicycle came up to me with enthusiasm to let me know that I had a special charger.  I thanked him but he insisted that I understand what he meant. I said that I indeed understood what my C500 was all about. He finally accepted that I knew my car and proceeded to tell me about a 69 hemi GTX that was in bushes down at the beach.(a hundred miles away from where we were). 
My ears perked up and I quizzed him about it. He gave me enough information for me to seek it out the next weekend.
BTW this kid was an odd one. He was too young to drive so his finding this GTX was on his bike.

The next weekend I got on my motorcycle to follow the directions.  I came around the back road curve this kid told me about and spotted the tail light in the blackberries he mentioned.  It was indeed a 69 Hemi GTX complete without a motor. A B5 blue 4sp car with trans and dana in place. I tracked the owner as best I could but never connected properly. That car got away from me but I read about it a few years later as being a nice find in the blackberries. nana

OOps--sometimes one story leads to another.   BTW I bought that 57 New Yorker that the fire department wanted to buy for the engine. I sold them a 392 I had at home for their resto project of a vintage fire engine. And I got a complete fine running New Yorker. Some get away and some don't.  Wink
