  1. I never said or suggested that you invented the details of the sale or the defect. Actually, I was taking what you had said as fact. Just seems odd that a supposed used car dealer wouldn't know that when dealing with cars that are 30 years old if you leave them standing something might go wrong.
  2. As someone who values genuine enthusiasm and the communities that contain it, when I see the market being manipulated by people purely for financial gain and to screw over said enthusiasts and communities, I think that sucks. If you don't value these things, then I guess you won't understand my position.
  3. Sorry am I missing something here? By "Jim" I presume you are referring to the member jimmer, whose post states that the seller had contacted because there was something wrong with the car that was present before the seller had collected it. Yet the eBay listing makes no mention of this, and, in fact states "Just had a cambelt service at Nissan Drives beautifully". Am I the only one who is seeing this? If this "buyer" actually exists then I feel sorry for them.
  4. If the car has been sold why is the eBay listing still active, and why is the listing on CarAndClassic still active?
  5. The "retro" Japanese car market is a bubble that will inevitably burst. More than likely the prices are being manipulated in an attempt to screw actual enthusiasts out of their hard earned money. You have to ask yourself who has been buying the thousands and thousands of 90's Japanese sports cars that have been sold over the past decade or so since the bubble started. They certainly aren't being bought by genuine enthusiasts as they have been totally priced out of the market at this point. The other thing to consider is that many of these makes/models from the 90's are not that rare/exclusive. Just look at Skylines, Nissan made absolutely thousands of them over the years and many still exist today, but the prices are ridiculous. Remember back to what happened with coin collecting in the late 1980's, insane prices being fuelled by market manipulation, and once the market crashed the prices never recovered to anything close to what they were at their peak even to this day. However I still fear that many genuine enthusiasts have been conned along the way, which is sad.
  6. Did you notice that on the seller's website the vehicle actually shows as being sold? What do you think the reason is for that?
  7. Makes sense, if you can't shift something, put the price up.
  8. So you are resorting to trolling as the foundation for you argument? I would say I expected better from a committee member of this club, but the way it has gone downhill over recent years I am not surprised at all.
  9. Again, the fact that the cars are still for sale after all this time proves my point a thousand times over. I don't understand why you are still confused by this, it's very simple.
  10. Post as many unrelated examples as you like. The cars are still for sale and have been for ages. That's my point. Do I need to repeat it for a third time?
  11. That's been up for sale for months, just like the black 1994 at HJA. You'd think the idiots that runs these businesses would learn, but no. They are just chancing it that they can fuck someone by charging double what it's worth.
  12. Hi, I have emailed you twice and I have not had a response, are you receiving my emails?
  13. When I click the message box another box pops up and says I can't send messages?
  14. Not sure if I am just being dense, but how do you message other members on the forum? More specifically admins/moderators? Are they able to accept messages? Thanks!
