Drive vehicle before paying!!!

by ana-dale / April 6, 2005 12:45 AM PDT

After becoming the winning bidder on a 1956 Cadillac for $8,500, there was no way I was going to have it delivered to me piggyback on a transfer truck. I figured if this vehicle was as described, it would drive the 600 miles home to my driveway. End result: Seller was a "classic used car saleman". Cost me over $500 in expenses, three days out of my schedule and, a vindictive negative feedback to boot. My only negative out of 110. When contemplating spending this kind of money, CAVEAT EMPTOR!
