There are always two sides to every story. One of my sales guys, who are car all car guys, sold Criag Charles from Pittsburg P.A in June, a 1970 Mach 1 428CJ original car. Craig came up to inspect the car and brought a check for the car with him. We normally hold cars until checks clear but he convinced my sales guy on taking the car right away. We also always do the paper work to clear customers in but he insisted he do it himself. We let the car go after all he is a lawyer and could do the customs paperwork. We said we would hold the original documentation of the car, until he sent us the US customs paperwork, so we are not liable for 15% Canadian tax. We still don?t have that paperwork from Criag as of this morning. He says he is now going to fax it to us. Craig let 4 months go by then contacted my guys in a huff about paperwork. We then boxed all the paperwork we had and sent it to him, my guys had now forgotten about him sending us the customs paperwork. Which he says we were not clear on. If that was the case wouldn?t you request the paperwork for the car when you pick-up the car? Anyway we sent him everything we had. He got everything including copies of the gas receipts. We sent him everything in the file. Now apparently everything got to Craig except for the original gas receipts but the copies are there. Craig phones me up and asks for them about a week ago. We look high and low in all our files for the gas receipts, we can?t find them. I phone Craig up tell him. We can?t find them. He?s pretty upset about the original receipts. I asked him what he thought fair compensations would be considering he did have copies of the receipts, just not the originals. Of course he has all the other paperwork original bill of sale, ford invoice, the ford 999 report, the Marti report ect. His reply was $6,000 for gas receipts which he had copes of. I then offered to buy back the car. He absolutely refuses, he likes the car. As he should it is a great car and he?ll be the first to tell you. If some one is reasonable I will be as well. He then said in not so many words, he would make my name mud all over the Boss website and that he was a lawyer. I said I?m certain he had only told them half the story. So this is the other half. I also phoned him this morning looking for my paperwork so I don?t have to be liable for %15 of the purchase price. Hopefully I will get it after 5 months. I also told him I will resolve this with him but I wanted my side of the story on the website. So guys how many dealers or private guys would even talk to Craig about what some gas receipts are worth. Keeping in mind he has every piece of important paperwork with serial #?s on them. The car is a great car. He has never complained about the quality of the car. I would love to have the car back. And gas receipts can not be documented to a particular car. They are cool to have but certainly not proof of anything. I asked him what he thought was reasonable he said $6,000 dollars for gas receipts, if someone is reasonable with me. I?ll be reasonable with them. I said how about a coupe hundred bucks, thinking he should take his wife out for a nice dinner on me. So who is being unreasonable the lawyer or the car dealer?
?We apparently lost some original gas receipts which he has copies of.
?I have offered to buy back the car.
?My guys have no reason to keep gas receipts
?Gas recipts are cool to have but can never be proof of anything other then somebody bought gas for a car anycar. There is no positive correlation to the Mach 1
?I really would buy the car back in a second. It?s a great car.
?I offered compensation on something I?m not ever sure we lost. He thinks $6,000 is fair. This guys is a lawyer trying to get money for gas recipts.
?There is always two sides to every story he is a lawyer and know how to make things look bad for LMC.
?Sorry guys it has taken me so long to post, I am a very slow at typing
