Technically, it's Sal's sons car. Sal and I were too broke to buy it, so his kid came up with the cash and we'll help him resell it once he cleans it up.

I just barely got it. Sal woke me at 1 AM east coast time with a phone call and I gave him the go ahead. He woke up the guy in Ca. and told him we'd be down in the A.M. As Sal was making the 3 hour trip another guy was heading north on his Harley, another out of state dealer made a cash offer site unseen and the owners phone was ringing off the hook.
By the time we got to the car we had the choice of handing over the cash or losing the car to one the phone callers or the poor guy in route on his Harley.:)

I hope the previous owner let Mr. Harley know it was sold before he made the trip. To me that's justifiable homicide to tell a guy it's his and then sell it out from under him without notification.

Amen to that. Once I talked to a guy on Saturday night at 9:30 about buying an Avery tractor and drove 3 1/2 hours to his house the following morning. He was no where to be found and there was a sign "tractor sold" nailed to his back door. Good thing fuel wasn't $3 a gallon. [xx(]

Not a car, but I had a similar experience, I made a deal for a set of
slightly used "Vette Brakes" for my wifes 78 Camaro, we drove ALL the
way down to LA to pick them up, I call the guy about 5 minutes from
his house and he says, "Oh, some guy bought them last night". I was
in shock, my wife was SOOO pissed. I asked him why he sold them when
I TOLD him I was buying them, he said "the guy had cash in hand". Man
I could have killed him. 300 mile round trip for nothing.

How do you "I just barely got it" when Sal found it, Sal's kid paid for it, and Sal's kid drove it home? I don't see the John Poulos part in the transaction other than giving Sal permission to buy it. The way it sounds to me is that Sal's kid owns the car.

Sal is one of my "dealers", but we signed up his kid to finance this one for me. If the car sells at a loss for example, I still have to pay his son back for the loan

Now I get it... the kid buys the car, does the work and then splits the profit with you. I've heard of that practice with hookers, but never with cars.

Yep, that's the way it works except I normally buy the car, this time I borrowed the money for a week or two. I'll do it the other way too. i.e. Pat bought a Golden Hawk, I did the work and split the profit with him. I'd rather split the profit on sale with one of my dealers then keep it all and pay the shipper $1000 to ship it here. Pimp I may be, but my Ho's are very well paid. :)

If you read through the history of this thread, you said you bought the car, then you said it was the kid's car, then it was you were going to reimburse the kid if it sold for a loss, now it's a two week loan. The more this story goes along the more it starts to come together. Does the kid realize that he could keep all of the profit by just doing it himself, he's already done all of the leg work and owns the car... and it appears that he'll be doing all of the prep work. Why he'd split any profit at this point is beyond me... he could probably put it on E-Bay as is today and make a healthy profit by doing little more than driving it home and washing it.

It's a good thing I don't sell cars for a living... I obviously don't understand how the process works.
