About 10 years ago I had an old Olds 98 car. It still ran like a top and the AC worked. The fuel lines has rusted away and the tank was close to leaking too. A good used tank and maybe $20 of fuel line and you would be good to go. I asked $400 for it and had every tire kicker from the area stop in it seemed. It seemed that every one had ten complaints about the car. Scrap was high then I finally took it in and got $450 for scrap and they did not complain about a single thing.

Craigslist people. Ugh. I've got a few stories. My favorite one is a 1991 Ford Focus. 240k miles. Manual trans. running good, but looked rough. Plenty of dents. Good brakes, tires, clutch, etc. It had another 100k miles of use on it.

Lady sees my $1600 ad on CL. She comes out, and starts complaining. She wants to drive it. Sadly, she hasn't driven a stick in 15 years. I tell her I'll drive. We drive around, it runs fine, AC works, radio works, lights, horn, wipers, etc. She's still complaining and wants do drive it. I let her try, she stalls it and jerks the clutch a few times. I tell her I'll drive back. She offers $1000.

I tell her to go away, don't come back. She leaves and calls me about 1 hour later. Offers $1400. I tell her it's no longer for sale.

Craigslist people. Ugh.

Probably doesn't want to deal with a cheapskate who will come on Yesterday's Tractors after they buy them and brag how they bought a couple IH tractors cheap from some fool that had no idea what they were worth.

He should have stoped with just PRICE IS FIRM and forgot his rant. That atitude would turn anybody away that would have bought at his asking price. If he would go into a rant in add like that what would he do if you showed up to look at them? I don't know if price was good or not or anything about that model tractor. Just his atitude is a stay away from ne.
