You should feel ashamed of yourself
No I should'nt, but you should. :roll:
Steve posted that he had bought the car, end of.
YOU were out of line by then going back and picking bones about it on a public forum. I think a magazine editor should simply know when he is stepping (albeit slightly) over the line thats all. Its simply a lack of common courtesy to the new owner.
And I am not stupid enough to know that there have never been any other arctics, I just pointed out that there is a little extra value in that colourscheme as well you also know and that as such it cannot be valued the same as say a re-reg'd black 60 and the cute plate added to the package a little more too. I never gave a price to anyone just that I would value it slightly higher than most other 60's in principle.
Obviously according to you and the seller some other people felt the same way as I do.
Yes, there are always a couple of nice og paint cars that come up for sale each year for less than you would spend restoring others like this one, but once you filter out cars with og plates AND an interesting colour, they dwindle right down to maybe 1 or 2.
You know that a car does'nt have to have og paint to still have the X factor. I am not going to argue with people who would rather play denial though. I am too busy.
