OT: Any of you ever have someone knock...

.. on your front door and ask you if you'd be willing to sell your truck? I had a guy knock on my door this afternoon and ask me if I'd take $4000 for my truck. The answer was "no," but it seemed really weird. I guess he'd seen me at the tire place where he works getting some tires swapped on some rims and looked at it.

I don't know, it just kind of caught me by surprise.

Never had anyone ask me that, but if I knew where this one certain Samurai lived I'd do it in a second and offer him trade or cash for his.

Just one time, but they didnt offer any price. Of course I said no because I dont want to sell it.

People used to stop and ask my dad if the K20 was for sale years ago when it used to just sit behind the house (after someone stole the carb, distrib., & PS pump). Dad would always tell them to take to me because I had plans for it.... I promptly told them no! [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

I've had people come up and ask me how much. I usually tell them $15,000 and if they are willing to give me that then it's sold

Re: OT: Any of you ever have someone knock...

i get this all the time from young kids that don't have any money,no job and no future most of the time i think they are hoping that you will say if you want it get it the h#ll out of here so i don't have to look at it any more,had a guy and his old lady walk up in the yard the other day and ask to buy
my dad's old mustang and haggle with me about the price
i set the price at 2500.00 and came down to 2200.00
and he said he had to go to the bank in the morning to get the cash and i told him money talk's and bull sh*t walk's
then he came back 3 day's later driving a k-5 blazer showing me his new 79 blazer that he said he paid 600 for and i
told him do you think i'm a dumb @ss kid it still has the dealer tag on the back of tail gate and the blazer is still sitting on the lot about a mile from my house.

Yeah, the other day I was working on my wife's Bronco and this guy drives up and asks if I wanted to sell my Blazer. I told him "no, I just bought 3/4 ton axles for it and I'm getting ready to put them in" so he says "ok, well here's my number let me know if you want to sell it..." um ya sure...
