    Interesting. But if you're airing down, shouldn't there be some increased concern over sidewall durability? Seems if you were going to take some serious damage it would be in this area.

    The article has been updated to say they stopped someone walking away from the scene.

    I imagine the conversation went like this:

    Cop: "Hey did you start that fire?"

    Guy: "Yes"

    Cop: "OK then. Good job, you can go."

    Someone obviously had a better offer. The OP started with "willing to separate" but then changed it to "Not willing to separate" after seeing all the demand. I don't blame them for trying to sell it all at once and be done.

    I may have tweaked a few things...
    There could be valid reasons but if there were then they should be easy to explain and @Twizted shouldn’t feel like he got Skip-bo’d.

    The way i see it, it’s fritz’s rack and he can sell it to whoever he wants.
    The fact someone says “first” doesn’t mean shit. Maybe the other guy wanted it more and offered more. Maybe @Pcyc got a text from someone, who knows someone, who sent him nudes to hold it for them. Who knows.

    Sucks for you @Twizted , but unfortunately sometimes thats the way it goes. :notsure:

    Was in the middle of discussing picking it up this weekend, when all of a sudden the terms went from willing to separate, into not willing to separate. As specified in post #2, I was only ever interested in the rack. I'm happy for the buyer, and I suppose for the seller, but I'm obviously disappointed that I was pushed out after OP had changed the terms after we started discussions.

    It's true, and you really can't blame someone for getting the best deal for themselves. It's how you handle it with all the people involved that shows what class you may or may not have.

    in California a verbal/text or email, agreement is a binding contract and you could file a small claim against him so im told by a friend, not sure if its worth the effort or how true that is.
