lol, Immortal. I wound up getting my money back from that d-bag thanks to a2 PD. The business with Snafu was worked out as we both discussed also. He's a great guy in person, but the crazy online persona casts a long ass shadow.


I don't think I've ever dealt with, or met Ridin Dirty - my jab was at mschaffer for calling the kettle black. Wasn't he the one just a short time ago bitching about items being severely overpriced, i.e. a certain member selling highly overpriced bald mud tires?

When someone asks what the bottom dollar is I respond in one of 2 ways depending on how nice the person is.
If he is nice i will ell him I do not negotiate, that is why I put a low price to begin with.
If he is not so nice I add $1 to my asking price and tell him that his bottom dollar is the extra one he just decided to pay me.

Yes, I do expect to deal with idiots. That is exactly why this thread was started, so that they can learn to be a little bit less of an idiot.

funny part is that always seems to work for my one friend who manages to get amazing deals on shit. he bought a good condition duramax engine with everything to make it run for 400 bucks. needs injectors is all thats wrong with it. guy originally wanted 800. he offered 400, and the guy said no. friend said well call me if you change your mind. 3 days later guy calls him says its yours.

Idiots are idiots because they don't learn. This is more of a rant than an informational thread.

Bottom dollar is the amount of cash they bring in hand that may or may not be close to said listing price that you accept. Otherwise the bottom is wide open.

If I really want it I'll offer what I want to pay after I look at it. If its a meh, I would like it, but would only buy it if the price is right, I will ask what the bottom dollar is. I have got stuff fo 50-65% of as price that way.

Is there something in the water in this Saranac place or just a lot of high voltage power lines?
