True story: There used to be an Allis Chalmer tractor jockey and AC used parts dealer near me who could have written that ad. He would rather sell AC parts for scrap than to have somebody leave with a good deal. Case in point: One time he advertised an AC radiator for sale and a guy shows up to look at it. The potential buyer asks the jockey if he would sell it for a lower price. The AC jockey exploded on him, took a sledge hammer to the radiator and beat the sheep out of it as the potential buyer watched in horror. The AC jockey then bragged to everybody around here what he had done to the radiator.
Why could the tractor jockey do that? Because he had won several million dollars on the state lottery just a few months earlier. The guy is now deceased and I don't know of anybody local who shed a tear at his funeral. (Not because he won the lottery, it was because he was a crook with a statewide bad reputation)

I agree with you on that one!!! There was a dealer in my area that if he took some stuff in trade he would stick it out back. Now if YOU came in and asked about one of those items the first thing he would do was to ask what you wanted to pay. Well that is when the RED flags go up. He would Double what you said you would pay and you hadn't even low balled him. I said no and walked away. If it sat for more than a couple of months....in to the scrap compactor it went. If he couldn't make his price. then no one would get it. Lost out on a couple of Gravely attachments that were in pretty nice shape but this idiot scraped them all. So no profit, just being an idiot. Another dealer bought him out. Glad he is gone.
