Default Was I a dick?

I'm not sure if this guy was being snarky or not.
He wrote my wife asking if we had any classic Mustangs for sale. We don't currently, but I have a '70 Boss that I'm not doing anything with. It has presentable paint and interior, but is missing all of its original Boss parts. It currently has a pumped up 351 Cleveland and a top loader. We offered to him for $40k. He asked a bunch of questions and then finally came back with this:
Quote:
Dennis,

Iíve been going through the numbers on the Boss and I wanted to bring it up to you.

Youíre asking $40,000 and Iíve been looking at current values of Boss stuff.

Iíve come up with between $20,000 and $30,000 in parts cost, depending if I do full concourse (smog etc) or not. The motor fully done could be almost $15,000 with carb, distributor, fuel pump etc.

Given those costs, I donít feel Iím in a position to offer $40,000.

$40,000 +
$30,000 =
$70,000

I realize $30,000 is a high number. But $70,000 invested in a non numbers matching Boss, does make good financial sense. Plus, I have to ship (open) it to Maryland for at least $2,000.

I realize that I havenít even looked at the rest of the car. But, Iím going on your word that it is mint. It looks real nice.

With all that said, if you have wiggle room, but Iíll leave that up to you.

Iím not trying to be difficult, just want be upfront.

Thanks
Kevin
So, I responded with:
Quote:
Hi Kevin,
Well technically, the car wasn't for sale. Kim just asked me what it would take for me to sell the car. I understand if you're not interested at that price.
Thanks,
Dennis
and he came back with:
Quote:
Dennis,

Sorry, I thought you were selling the car. Yeah, youíre right 40k is too high for me.

Thanks showing me, your beautiful car.
Kevin
I left it at that.

I agree with him you want too much. I agree with you that you weren't really selling it. Talking with a few members here they think you already are a dick. I just thought i'd let you know. I hope this helps.

I think you're being a whiny little bitch cause he didn't jump at the chance to buy an overpriced rustang just cause you owned it.

I think you're a dick, but for completely different reasons.

Hope that helps.

They deleted my avatar of President Trump and deleted my location "Trump Nation"

I mentioned their censorship in the MNF thread and they banned me.
