I'm guessing most of us have had a similar over the years. Recently I learned that a very special car was sold that I thought I would have first opportunity IF it ever was offered for sale.

Very happy that this has been worked out, and very much looking forward to seeing it next month!!

The car was pretty nice other than missing the drivetrain. I had the money earmarked for something else but wanted to help him get back into a Camaro. I didn't have a place to keep it so instead of me buying it and parking it until he paid me for it, I let him keep it and said if he ever sold it I had right of first refusal. Yep, I was young and stupid. Next time I saw him, the car was gone and I never got my money. It still sucks pretty bad thinking about it all these years later.
My father (RIP) always told me one of the quickest ways to lose a friend was to lend them money. And that if you couldn’t afford to GIVE it to them, don’t LEND it to them. Now, I know that isn’t 100% true 100% of the time, but more often than not, he was right.
“Lend money=Lose friends”.

Glad you got this worked out. I'm sure you'll keep digging to determine "the rest of the story".


"I found out that the owner I bought the Z from promised Tom the first fight right of refusal when he was ready to sell the car. Tom having the same passion for the car that I do, I completely understanding why he was upset and hurt when he saw that I bought the car."
GGGRRRR... unfortunately, this brings back a, still smoldering, screwing I got in 1998 too. I sold my rare 1982 Kawasaki 1100 Spectre, that I bought new to a "friend" cheap, so he had a bike to drive until he found the Harley he wanted with the understanding it only came back to me. He found out he could get 3 times the price of what I sold it to him for and I never saw it again. Seems many of us have had something similar when dealing with cars and motorcycles over a lifetime.

Tom sounds like a heckuva guy to reunite the POP with the car.

Congrats on the car.

Seems a bit odd that there are no instructions for stripe delete on the order form.
