Well, the last thing I want to do is resurrect last night's back-n-forth with this guy (Let sleeping dogs lie ...). I'm not sure if he owns one now or just wants to feed his "nostalgia" on the very cheap (I used Steve's Inflation Calculator tip : the drum would be nearly $800 in today's $'s : his response was that "the model T will never come back in style as with the _____"). Did I want to inform him that there sure as *hitty *hitty Bang Bang would be enough people out there with ready cash for a vintage Model T, but I didn't want to blow his last and final cylinder.I like this idea "if he really thinks you're out of line, maybe you should offer him $175 for his." I'd love to hear what he has to say to that.
And that line of questioning asking for his ____ for $200 would no doubt have unintended consequences. Like, say, he'd want an even trade for his beat up non-functional drum for my near mint one. And I have to say this for him : he was very polite about everything (didn't see it this way at first); even when I was mocking his malfunctioning logic. We left on good terms. In today's world how many times can you say that things ended well after dipping south?
