Whats wrong with people

I replied to an add in the classified section of this site about a 2nd Gen Big block car asking where is the car located here is what I got back.


"I am asking for a $100 finders fee, then I will reveal the seller. "

This is why this world is going down the CRAPPER

Re: Whats wrong with people

sounds like somebody is trying to "double dip". bird dog or finder's fee are usually paid by the seller, not the buyer unless the buyer contracted for the service.

Re: Whats wrong with people

Tell him that in order to interact with him and you will need to charge him your consultant fee of $175/hour for action required to conduct research on his background and credentials on acting as a registered broker and as a contingency should his alleged information not be correct or reliable.

Re: Whats wrong with people

I thought finder's fees were only paid if the item was purchased, not just to contact the buyer/seller and/or to go look at it?

Driving a #s-matching Z in the rain..... and lovin' it....

Re: Whats wrong with people

Dave hit it dead on the head!!! And Frank if i was you I would post what i knew NOW before the auction,, You might save a fellow car nut a 100 grand!! Just the staement"That car is nowhere as original as they want to pass it off as" would be enough for me to post the info i knew.. Seems like the old racer is out to get him a big cut of the profits from a misreprsented car too. just my 2 cents,, sorry if i offended anyone,,Frank

Hmmm.... borders on extortion, doesn't it? Just guessing here.

Re: Whats wrong with people

I'm guessing the man will be paid money by either Reggie or Craig because he adds value to the car that is being sold. He can base his fee on percieved profits if he chooses. If not for the auction he would be sitting home and getting nothing so saying he will not get any profits is really pointless. So the car he had has been restored and lots of orig stuff has been replaced, same as Ray Allens. The Ray Allen car was totally restored and all the graphics were vinyl stickers so the new owner can make the car look stock if he wishes. Ray Allen still had a stake in that car when it went across the block. The statement of only 16 LS6 converts being built was proven wrong years ago. There are many more than 16 documented LS6 converts. I think people are now guessing between 50-100 built. I see nothing wrong with Barrett-Jackson selling mostly musclecars. Each auction has it's niche. Barrett-Jackson making the city 6 mil is a bad thing ? The buyer and seller each pay 8%. The price the car sells for at that auction usually more than makes up for the 8% the seller has to pay. The buyer pays more but he also can come to one place and look thru about 1000 cars to find one for himself instead of flying all around the country looking at mis-represented junk. The big money being paid for musclecars has helped all thru the industry and more and more shops are able to makie a living restoring cars for customers that might actually be worth what it costs to do a proper resto. All is good.
