Re: [DMCForum] Re: Deloreans on Ebay



First off, YOU brought this up in public..  and I
don't think a private deal between you and Rob is
something you should be discussing in this manor..

With that said, I will defend myself.

Again, If you would have had all of the DeLorean stuff
ready for us when we got there, then we would not have
had to go through your stuff.  YOU told us to do it.
When Dave and I got there in the morning, you told us
to start digging through you piles of crap to get a
buried transmission, and doors...  When we got to the
loft in the garage, YOU told us to look through the
stuff.  If we would have waited for you to move all
the junk around, and dig out the parts we would still
be standing in your yard today!

You gave up your time for free??  Um..  Uh..  Well, I
guess you did not have to be there with us as we went
looking for all the parts.  And what about Rob PAYING
you?  Id say you did nothing for free...  Shit, Mike
even bought you lunch!

We have 4 guys working there.. I Personally was up for
24  hours straight that day.  The four of us worked
for over 12 hours straight going through your crap,
while you moved at a snail pace... Inspecting every
part (not only delorean) in the place.

Your heat story is Bullshit.  When you winterize a
building, you shut the water off and blow the pipes
out.  From what I saw, your heat was forced air so you
could have turned the heat on with no need to touch
the water. Even if you did have to turn the heat on,
small price considering what Rob paid you. 

The day was selected (from what I was told) based on
YOUR NEED TO GET THE BUILDING EMPTY.  As far as I
know, the stuff is still in a trailer at Rob's shop,
so we know he was in no rush for it.

FWIW, your "other buyer" would have not shipped all
that crap back to Europe...  And I hear the complete
car you sold (#16686??) also ended up in Europe,
because the American buyer dumped it, it was such a
POS...  Maybe standards are lower across the pond?

As far as Rob looking at the parts, and the deal you
made... That is not for me to comment on.  I don't
know anything about Rob's business.  However, There is
no way he knew exactly what he was getting, and
clearly he trusted you when you told him what you had.
We could all tell he was disappointed.
