Just tell yourself - if they are getting rid of it that cheap, there is something really wrong with it. Don't buy someone else's problem. If nothing else, it may make you feel better. Lol.

See it more often than not. Lots of parts I want to pick up just for resale. Last week I missed some bull dawg uppers for 200 & a few months back a hardtop for 450.

It's just Murphy's law in action.

Heck just build up the buy fund, then a quick trip downtown and I'm sure you can find someone who will be happy to "provide" what you are looking for.

Just kidding.

Don't worry,,, if you live your life right, keep your eyes and ears open, everything will fall into place when you reach your late 50s.. Timing is everything, and for me, after banging my head at every missed opportunity for decades, I am now astonished at how everything is falling into place.. Everything happens for good reason, that missed opportunity was more than likely worth missing,, . Have a great day !!
