Kinda low, but would you take $8,000 and I pay for shipping?

Offer

I am not trying to offend you by any means.
I am serious about my 11k offer. There are a lot out there, I just bought a wonderful black one in FL for little less then this. And I wanted a second one for the GF, so I consider yours, if you are interested.
Thank you.

He is right, his offer is a pretty good one. Check out what they are going for on eBay. Shocking.

The market value is between 8-10000, and considering that all you did is correct. 11 is fair

I am sure your car is immacualte, that's the only reason I even made you an offer.
I am very sorry, that you feel offended.
I would advise you to trade it in, or try to sell it for 16,000.
Sorry, that you are so upset, it's just like with houses, the value is what the market gives you at that moment, real value is a matter of opinion and demand.

Good luck, I really mean it. You have a wonderful car, and I hope you find the right buyer at the right time for you.

Let me know if you change your mind, I am not in a hurry, since I just purchased a beautiful black 97, and just wanted another one of those black beauties.

Cheers, Auf Wiedersehen

Wow. How much explanation does it need to say no.

Just one question. Why did you even offer your car for "Best Offer" then, why don't you just put a pricetag on it, like everybody else will do.

That would have saved you a lot of tears when receiving offers.

Once again, good luck, and if you wait 20 years to sell your car, then it will be worth much more then today, if it's still in this condition.........

Hey. Really. Why don't you just not sell the car, and rather add on your garage for the money you possibly loose on a 12 year old car.
