NOT MINE either!

I like it when members post the pics and details here too so after the CL posting disappears, we still have record of it (research, pricing, history, etc.). Someone may buy this and try to flip it or resell it a year or two later and we can see the history. Also, when they do list a price, it helps us get an idea of what they are selling for (or at least what people are asking for them) :)

Looks like it could be a really cool rig, but have never heard of anyone having good luck buying a big project like this that is only partially done. What a fair price be for it? I'm sure he has a bunch in the parts, but can't see it selling for a fraction in its current condition.

Owner is a mudder, local to me. I've seen the rig before, it is a serious project but a super clean project.

Contacted him....his response:

”Taking offers. I’ve told a couple others $15-17K, will take best offers, one looking next week”

Haha! True! Guy needs to finish it if he wants some real money out of it.

Sounds like he doesn't have the time to invest in it.


this happens more times than you'd think,
someone starts off all gung ho, dives deep into a project, buying all the goodies he wants, then time drags on and it's not running and gets pushed off for other priorities.
then the time comes to get rid of it and he has $10,000 spent on a bunch of parts and wants that much for it and it's worth no where near that much.
so then he needs to decide, to take a loss or at least get it running and driving

I don't know how much the guy is asking for the above rig, my example above is just an example.

Yes that's me. I've been absent for some time now, just busy with"stuff". I realize I won't get near the money I've got in to it. I guess folks are afraid to even make an offer.
