[DMCForum] Re: Inappropriate Car Show Behavior?



I did not lie about anything.
I explained this to you in private emails.
I told you I needed the parts you offered to me to put in my
car, but I ended up selling my car BEFORE I installed the overhead
console...I was't going to throw it in for free after all the money
I put into it.
I offered it to the buyer but he didn't want to spend any
more money so I decided to sell it separetly.

Besides which, what difference does it make what I do with
the parts I buy from you?
They are not given to me as charity you know,
I paid top dollar for this stuff, and was happy to do so.
I thought we were helping each other.
You needed the extra money and I needed the parts.
What's the problem with that?

I have never lied to you about anything.
All I have done is bought stuff from you.
I think I have given you somehwere in the neighborhood
of about $1400 or so, I would have to check.
You never had much of a problem taking that from me.
I am getting the impression that your opinion of me
blows with the breeze, and maybe you think that since
I sold my car that I am out of the game...I don't think I am.
