I believe he doesn't really know how to run the ads and set-up. What's with the mixed big fonts?  As said, why would he put all the questions and answers on there?  Doesn't know how to keep them off maybe?  Wonder how he sells anything in his "store"  if he answers All the questions in grumpy mood?  Bet he doesn't sell much or quiclky and got him to be a grouch and it never went away! Wondering what ebay would do if we reported HIM as being the A** and treating us customers badly! Maybe we could Ban HIM!

This guy is so funny. He doesn't know as a seller you have an option to allow these questions to be viewed to the public. Here is my second response & his return. Hilarious

 

 Dear varietyvintageplace,

Wow do you have an attitude I didn't mean to pluck a hair. I do nut & bolt to the frame restorations professionally. On a good day you might get around $800 for a total restore on this tractor. I'll make you an offer I'll give you $50.00 for it delivered & give you the first opportunity to buy it back totally restored for $1500.00. Let me know because I'm interested. Thanks

 I seen that & that was going to be my next response but I want someone else to get involved with other zip codes. A cross the country coverage of this guy would be entertaining.

Just some advice if you have an eBay account. If you ask this guy a question & he gets mad go to your account & ban him as a buyer from your items. This way he has no way of retaliating by buying a small item just to give you a negative feedback. I collect Brett Favre football cards & bought a graded rookie card on eBay. Long story of over a year I got this crook banned. During this investigation & I say that because it led to a federal arrest of him & his buddy grading cards out of their garages in two different locations. I was given the advice to ban him immediately so he could not buy just to give a negative response. You got to check this guy out he is very entertaining. :dancingbanana:

Go figure this this still listed. About a year ago it was listed and asked him question regarding the price and he said if it didnt sell he could easily part it and get over 4000 bucks for the parts. I then asked why doesnt just do that i never got an answer back

Here is my question and his response lol.

 

Q:  Hi, from the pictures you show the tractor looks to be in great condition for it's age and well cared for. I do have a couple questions about some stuff that I can tell from looking at the pictures. First is the engine free or seized and if it's free does it have compression? Second what are the tire sizes front and rear? Third what size is the mower deck, 44 inch or 54 inch and are all of the spindles free? Does the tractor roll easily? One last question because it's hard to see in the picture. Is that rust or dirt on the lift cylinder? Thank you for your time. I'm very interested in your tractor. Nov-28-14

 

A:  Thank You again for your very kind, & honest words regarding my tractor here. I will check the tire size, mower deck size. I believe it to be slight rust on the cylinder but repairable Im sure? I will also check the spindles, but I believe them to be free at this time? This tractor has been garage kept since I owned it for 4 yrs now. Kind Regards, varietyvintageplace

Dear varietyvintageplace,

I wished you would report me. You as a seller have more serious requirements as a seller than a buyer does. Because of your unprofessional attitude you would get a warning & possibly a probation for awhile until you prove yourself as a respectful seller. Maybe I should consider reporting you ???? You could possibly get maybe a $100. or slightly more if the buyer could see it in person & with a short towing distance, definitely not what your asking.

Dear sawdust513,

FYI !!!!!! Apparently this prospected buyer disagrees with your thinking completly? and more than likely will make me an offer close to what Im asking!!!! please take note : Dear varietyvintageplace,

Hi, from the pictures you show the tractor looks to be in great condition for it's age and well cared for. I do have a couple questions about some stuff that I can tell from looking at the pictures.

Thank you for your time.

I'm very interested in your tractor. Note: this message I recieved about 30 minutes ago and after your original onoxious, rude, & inconsiderate comments about my tractor. Please dont think because I sell on Ebay fulltime and I try to defend my items here on Ebay by low ball offers that I am out of line? Im not out of line at all only doing a service for HONEST BUYERS who have a true appreciation for scare, hard to find, highly collectable items. This is what I do full time here on ebay for almost 3 yrs now, so please do not accusev me of doing anything different here!!!!!!!! kind regards, varietyvintageplace
