Wow, what an unfortunate turn of events. I had a large business deal go belly up on the last day when the seller changed his mind (right after the bank had cut him a large check) so I feel your pain. You will find a few for sale every month, but they go fast so be ready to jump on one that ticks all your boxes. That likely means being able to fly on short notice to snag a deal. Best of luck..............

If I ever get to the point where I contemplate selling, I think I'd end up being "that guy" as well!
Unfortunate for you on this round, but you'll out finding something that makes you happy - good luck with the hunt.

Yep, agree with all. Welcome. Persistence and quick action do pay off eventually.

Yep, great attitude and that is what is necessary. I bought mine out of state.

Circa 2000-ish, I used to ride the bus or skateboard-commute by a house where a nicely kept '70 Chevy Monte Carlo lived. I caught up with the owner one day and asked if he wanted to part with it. He said sure for maybe $2500 bucks, but that his teenage daughter drove it so he'd have to ask her. She was at work. Dad said she wanted a Honda Civic or the like anyway. I said let's make a deal.

I thought we'd get it done that day, so I waited for an hour or two for her to get back (think pre cell phone ubiquity) before I took off. The dad called me an hour later to say sorry. Daughter couldn't part with the car after all. I couldn't blame her really. I was bummed though because the car was already mine in my imagination...

Anyhow, I know the feeling Thanks for the excuse to tell the story. Good luck with the search!
