3. If you are going to call the number listed in the ad, you are wasting everyone's time if you are going to offer less than $4k.

4. Please don't PM me questions about the car (see #1).
I'm sorry Justin, really really sorry...

I have no problem with you. It is the 90 other people who want to haggle with me via PMs.
I am probably coming off as an a'hole but it is a little frustrating when I have plainly stated the car is not mine, and I am still getting people offering $2k, $2.5k etc.
At this point, the sentimental value of the car is not as important as maximizing the return on the sale of the car. The final decision of the sales price rests in someone else's hands.
My sole responsibility was posting it on Rennlist b/c we thought this would be a good venue for serious potential buyers for a relatively rare car. Yes, it is not perfect but the price reflects the condition. I know of another Turbo S with no engine for sale recently that sold for $2500.

This car runs and drives for $4k.

In the end, whether it goes to an enthusiast or the salvage yard, makes no difference to me.

Offering you $2k is an insult. Whoever did that is a complete fool.

Fool or knave -- it makes no difference. It will only take two people who realise the value of what's on offer here, and are in a position to make an offer to ensure a fair price is realised. The rest are just wasting their (and everyone else's) time.

Personally, I always worry about entering into a high-dollar-value (or even a low one, for that matter) with a person with limited attention and/or reading comprehension abilities anyway. It's what 10 foot barge poles were made for. On ebay, if I get a really low-ball offer from someone on a "make an offer" item, I just whack them on my non-bidders list -- some people you just know are going to be a hassle in dealing with.

I would try if you can to rephrase hotshoe, after all having seen alot of threads now that are very similar to this one, the d bags posting aren't necessarily the teenagers. If you have proof to back it up that would be great, only mentioning this to defend myself and a few innocent other teenagers that i know of that have been caught in your generalization.
You are right. I apologize for saying "teenagers" because I'm sure it's not entirely their fault. I sometimes forget that many of the said d-bags are adults!

I agree everyone is giving this guy such a hard time...and in turn could possibly be turning him away from a potential sale. Oh well tho, if it dies, mine is just that much more rare.

In all honesty, good luck with the sale and I hope someone decides to pick it up, for the car AND your friends sake.
I think you missed the point of my post LOL It wasnt to get the Color/ interior codes for the silver rose model

You sir, are an idiot. When you SEEN your tow guy again, tell him he is an idiot too.

Ok. He obviously doesn't know what he is talking about. He has added absolutely nothing to this thread. He has no interest in the car.
Comparing a Turbo S to a 95 RX7 is insane. I don't know the production numbers of either car but I would bet a year's salary there were 5 times as many 95 RX7's produced than Turbo S 944s.

sorry ernie, ive followed this thread and the pathetic boocauckie the op has been getting. i'm with the op on this one. truth is an absolute defense.

I also happen to have personal knowledge of the whereabouts of junk yards brother salvage yards, his mother front yards, dad back yards and sister side yards.

None of them know this guy DANNie who claims to be a friend of junk. Next thing you know i bet DANNiE is going to tell us he knows Jack Shyt. I bet he doesn't know Jack either.

I'd say scrap it if the tow company will give you $4k...like others have said, I doubt this. It's probably just a tactic to keep low-ballers away...I know, I've used it before. "So and so will give me $xxxx so don't bother unless you will give me this much"

Best of luck.

Where's Lart on this one?.... I'd like to hear his opinion.
