Im really at my wits end with this guy who just bought my hemi car.
I decided after 35 years to part with my baby. It was older restoration but still looked great. He bought the car sight unseen. Gave him plenty of pictures and I gave him the most accurate description as possible.
He just received the car and he was easy to deal with at 1st when he gave me a deposit.
After deposit and many phone calls, he started getting a little intense and became a real PITA.
He just received the car and now is picking it apart wanting me to give him money back. I signed the bill of sale but they took the car without signing it.
What's your thoughts on this matter?

Don't fall for it... He could have had the vehicle inspected at any time... After the sale is no time for negotiation...

As long as you didn’t misrepresent your car, there is nothing that you should be concerned about.
Buyers remorse is not your problem. You are not a bad person if you just ignore him at this point.

They drove away without signing the bill of sale.
The guy got really annoying and asked a million questions before the deposit was made. I told him everything I knew and was totally transparent.
Now he's texting me like crazy wanting me to give him money back.
Should I just block him?

.

All of it,, or a portion?.
If all. and money's securely transferred to you, then No.
If a portion, and they can somehow dispute the payment, maybe yes.
Yes: because of something you may have overlooked.
Seems bought sight-unseen by them.
That's a "risk" a buyer knowingly takes & therefore must assume any repercussions.

I received all the money with wire transfer. If there's no bill of sale what's the repercussions?
He is asking what am I going to do for him?

1. Put together all of your paperwork and pictures.

2. Document a timeline of how the transaction took place, i.e. from the first point of contact with the buyer to the last point of contact you had with the car.

3. Call your lawyer's office Monday morning, make an appointment with your lawyer, explain the situation and ask for his advice.

4. Follow your lawyer's advice.

He made the choice to purchase the car sight unseen with no inspection and you were honest. I think he’s likely just hoping you’re going to bite and save him some money.
Unless it’s something rather serious that you missed I’d tell him no refunds!

IIRC, the buyer is not required to sign a bill of sale. If the document has the buyer identified, that is what is important.

Is it better to have the buyer sign a bill of sale, sure.

If the BOS says sold in "As-is" condition, tell him you bought it. Caveat emptor Proper due diligence on the buyers part is lacking if they complain now.

Honestly, this seems to be a common practice anymore, buy the car, it shows up and complain about what was purchased.

True, I would do this for piece of mind.

IF you decide to refund his money, I'd want to have the car back home and YOU pick it apart before I released a nickel. Just my opinion.

This is great advice.! Then your lawyer can tell him to pound sand. Or you can tell him you're coming to get the car and will give his money back. I wish you good luck. Some people are just a-holes.

doesn't matter if it is a classic or newer car, people always try to get money back later.
I have sold 3 used cars and every single time the person called me back after owning it a week wanting something, money back, or me to fix something that just broke.

I would do nothing. If he bought it "As-Is" and sight unseen...his risk. Sounds like a guy looking to flip the car for a greater profit and hoping you will cave and "refund" some of the money he paid you. Move on with your life.


Never, ever argue with an IDIOT. They will drag you to their level and then beat you with their years of experience

Unless you misrepresented something, it's on him. Most likely he has a history of doing the same thing to other sellers too.
