Or so he thinks!
Not American Pickers but a guy that does the same thing.
He bought an old vehicle just down the road about two miles and had it on his trailer. I recognized the vehicle. Interested in some of my junk. I heard his ad on a local radio stations trader program a few weeks back. Seems he calls radio programs all over the country looking for stuff and offers a finder fee. He lives many hours from here. His trailer has no lights whatsoever and a flat tire. Seems less than organized and very much in a hurry.
Some red flags are flying! I get to asking him some questions.....
He tells me his profession - its not old vehicles. Doesn't say a word about fixing them up, collecting, or playing with them. No mention of what he has in his "collection". Just looking for certain items.
Now he was nice to me and I was nice to him. Mama raised me right. I even aired up his trailer tire that he didn't know was flat in the first place.
While here he showed interest in a few of my vehicles. The one he really wanted I was pretty sure wasn't for sale but I said I'd entertain an offer.
He threw out an offer of about half of what it was worth. I call
If I'd been more with it I'd have asked which half he wanted.
I don't get mad about it, but just like the Pickers TV show, why on earth would I sell something at half the value so someone else can double their money?
I am perfectly capable of selling things myself.
