    It's simple really. They only buy what they seriously want with cash! Call them picky spenders!

    Do some people think it's possible to buy things person to person without cash? There is no such thing as a serious buyer without cash.

    I've always pondered what that meant " I will give you X , cash". Well, explain what your other options might be would you?

    I've been known to tell a seller that I have cash and it's a no b.s. deal before I make an offer. Its part of the negotiations. I've also put that in a want ad a time or too, but someone that starts the conversation with that phrase is probably full of crap.

    I know, as apposed to what?
    What’s that line even suppossed to do? Chances are I have more cash my pocket.
    Is somebody going to finance a “$2,500” C body?
    Or going to sell one with a “rent to own” option?

    I usually tell people that I'm on the way with cash. So they better be where we agreed to meet with 100% of what we agreed to sell/buy and it better be the one in the picture and in the condition that we talked about.

    And by the way...... Don't be alarmed but I will have at least a S&W 9mm with me for your protection and mine. And I'm not talking about sockets or wrenches.

    That's just the simple truth.... no games.

    That's how I was able to get my first Polara, payments to the owner, car was mine when paid off. Didn't have a lot of money, but I laid out a plan and we both agreed to it. Did that with my '72 W200 also. Not so much these days, but I couldn't have gotten firmly entrenched in the hobby without these two deals.

    Nothing wrong with that if you can work out a deal.

    Would you take in Silver? How about in Gold?



    I did using my Cap 1 card. I got a card with a proviso of spending at least $1500 within the first 60 days, using at a dealer. I gave the dealer $1500 in cash and put the rest on the card. I had it paid off within 6 months. I had cash for the whole deal, but I needed a card so all in all it was a deal!

    Really? Whos gonna do that in todays world? They only say cash because they think it enhances the offer and for no other reason .

    Like when people say " I got it for X out the door" . Huh? Why even say it?

    When I bought Missouri the seller asked (on the phone) if I would be paying in cash . After I hung up I looked at the phone and said " how the Eff else would I pay"?

    Bitcoin is a digital asset and a payment system invented by Satoshi Nakamoto, who published the invention in 2008 and released it as open-source software in 2009. The system is peer-to-peer; users can transact directly without an intermediary. Transactions are verified by network nodes and recorded in a public distributed ledger called the block.

    I'm sure some of the humor will be lost in the translation. :poke:
