Why such negativity?

:D yep... I've made more money on Miata, Honda and my all time favorites....a 1999 Ford van, 1500 retailed at 3000 used it for a year and SOLD, a 1996 Buick land yacht. Bought her for 1500 and sold for 4500. Now it took marketing to a Brutha but hey I knew who to market it too. Saw it a few months later and YES....big ole 22's on it. I was happy and so was he. OH and I used it as a work car till it sold BINGO.

 

Ohh ya..Did the same on a little toyota camry ..I traded a sks too my cousin for it " I paid 120 for the sks "..I had a good idea who to market it too..lol I drove it around for half a year and sold it for 1000...cannot be brand bias " even if its british or from europe" lol i would flip a jag or a MG any day if i got it cheap ;)..lol

 

Heck i just watched my dad last week sell one of his 1950 fords for 5,000..he got it for 2500 out of a barn earlier this year, and put less half a day of his own time getting it too run correctly...Flipping now days is about timing and your local market, and a good eye on how much work it will need.." if any"...But over all i agree a 71-73 mustang is not a good investment to turn a buck, unless you get it on the cheap. But there are alot of classics out there to make cash on. You got to think out of the box a little and not be stuck on what you like personally.

I love Craigslist - period!

 

Old enough to remember the Sunday morning papers classifieds being the only local option? That sucked and was expensive to sell stuff.

 

Auto Trader magazines you had to buy? - black and white picks and still sucked and was still costly.

 

Free local traders full of local dealers crap?

 

Hemmings? Still hanging on but soon to go all digital. No cheap cars.

 

Early online classic car sites? Life was starting to get better but few cheap cars.

 

Then comes craigslist - We have bought and sold so much on CL and it has proven to help make this silly hobby of mine self funding.

 

Like others have said keep an open mind - just flipped a 1992 HO 5.0 T-bird. Very clean car that just needed a little TLC. Paid 1400.00, put less than 200.00 additional into it and sold it for 2700.00 - all on the local CL.

 

A 78 Firechicken went online late Saturday night and was sold by Sunday morning. $900.00 and the pictures and description looked great. I would have bought that in a heartbeat and would easily have made a few grand.

 

Most of all it is fun and I have met some very unique people.

Im going to bow out of saying anything any more on this site don;t want to hurt any ones feeling was not my intensions.

 

Hi Ron,

 

Please don't stop sending your opinions and ideas on the forum. Your opinions and what you have to say are respected and valued, and you have every right to express them. I know you havn't set out to intentionally abuse anyone or hurt feelings, and i don't think you have.

 

When you put forward a thread involving a stong point of view revolving around a controversial subject, you are bound to get heated debate and strong opions back from folk. The trick is not to take it personally. I welcome and respect what you have to say, and i'm glad you put up your thread, and got a robust response.

 

I'm sure the Admin boys on the forum would agree with me when i say that the key is......... that we may sometimes disagree with each other, but still end up respecting each other in the bigger sense. The forum is a great way to make friends, not enemies.

 

So keep it coming brother, and i look forward to any further comments you want to make in the future.:)

 

Thanks Ron,

 

Cheers,

 

Greg.:)

+1 for what Greg said. Ron you are entitled to your opinion mate as others are entitled to disagree and state their own opinions. I thought it was a good discussion on a topic that is only likely to have people respond with a personal point of view. It is some time hard to convey the correct tone in a typed format because we are car guys not Ernest Hemingway ;) Stick around.

He has all the vices I admire and none of the virtues I despise

This goes for all on here! I'd buy you all a beer (or beverage of choice) BUT Dana reminded me just how BROKE I am right now... can't even afford to talk to him if he visits my city :P :(

 

I DO know some cheap burger dives! :D

Very good discussion, grown ups don't have to agree on everything to appreciate or respect what we do. Its when people start acting petty over shit. One nice thing about this site compared to many other car sites I frequent.

 

Another thread brought up the fact that one or some other Moostang sites you are pariah if you go against the grain. Some will happily show you the door if you don't conform to the groupthink.

Yeah, i agree. This is a great site, run well, is sensible and mature, full of top info, yet we can have some fun and horse around when we want. Personally, this is the only international forum site i am involved with.

 

..............and Luke, you ain't gettin' nothin' from Dana!:P:P:P

 

Cheers
