To the OP, nice that you had the courtesy to not say anything negative about the car. That's tough to do sometimes when someone shows up with a new car purchase, all fired up, and all you can see is the problems they obviously missed.

You were kind enough to recognize they were happy and leave it at that. A good call!
Lead, follow or get the hell out of the way

So I told him it was not my car, but it would be well into 6 figures to buy it. He didnt blink and asked how deep?
I dont think this guy would have blinked if I told him $100K to own it

I gave his number to the cars owner and told him it was up to him, He has yet to call him , nor does he plan to.

That said, IMO if the OPS car owner is happy , more power to him to fulfil his dream

Thanks Peabody. To tell you the truth after her boyfriend opened the door and banged it into the front fender on my daily driver without even acknowledging it happened I was kinda shocked. She found the car for him and I didn’t want to upset her by telling her he banged the door into my car. It was dark out when it happened but I looked today and it did chip the paint on the wheel lip on my car.

I almost took my truck out of the garage so they could pull inside. So glad I didn’t because that chip would’ve been on the Cuda.

I was kind on the description of this car also. Looked like an old race car someone put perfume on. The short block looked old and worn orange paint that they painted body color over to try and make it look fresh but was chipping off. Had an old Indy valley plate on it but the heads and manifold looked new. Old MT valve covers.
I agree that that black lower paint screams bondo along with the huge amount of new undercoating applied. Flipper

Concidering the skill to do things one self being a lot less prevalent.
More and more things being made with the intention of not be maintained.
Financing so easy to get and things being priced out of the, "Save up for it", economy.
Add to this, instant gratification becoming a growing "necessity".
This is quit simply expected.
A lot of people can't see the forest for the trees.
The car is better than mine was when I got it in the early 80's, or will ever be again. It's mine though, and I've owned it for several decades, and had my fun. My Grand kids will have to dispose of it, cause I can not afford to repair it, nor will I ever get rid of it.
I do have other toys to work on and enjoy.
That said, I agree with not bursting the bubble.
As long as the folks that bought it are happy,
Who are we to cloud up their "Sunny Day"?
My biggest issue is that the O.P.s ride got dinged and no one seemed to notice, let alone care.
These are usually the first folks to blurt out about being "Disrespected".
Ok, I'm getting off my soap box now.
Have a good night everyone.
I have mechanical Aptitude.
I can screw up anything.
