Rethinking Buy/Sell Section Rules

Recommended Posts

nathanOJ    3

As a lurker, I understand the meaning of the rules for the buy/sell section. I need to sell a car ASAP and I don't want to create garbage posts (such as this one) to get it on there. A certain member of this forum has given a lot to this community, unfortunately passed away and I feel it would be in his best interest to give back to this community one last time. If not it will go on craigslist.

Hi Nathan

You raise a good point and one that we shall consider further.

Hopefully in this instance, you are able to post up the advert and it would be nice for the car to go to someone who would cherish it as much as the previous owner.

Could I ask who it is that has passed away (private message me if you like)?

Best Regards,  Trevor

Well you can probably guess by my username but I'm the son of Landar.

Unfortunately Landar lost a long battle with lung and brain cancer for over a year.

I need to get his Lexus sold quick before I need to put it in storage for 9 months.

Nathan, I knew the prognosis was not good but I was hoping your father would somehow make it through this.  We PM'ed about it on the last day he was active on this forum.  I would have liked to have met Randy in person but didn't know how to contact him after he dropped off the forum.   Randy was incredibly helpful to others on this forum and it was always great fun to "talk" with him by PM.   

I assume you are talking about the red SC430:  

 

 

 

Perhaps a local Lexus dealer could provide suggestions on selling it or even sell it for you.  Or maybe there is a business where you live that specializes in selling older pristine special interest cars on consignment.  I'll bet this SC would sell in an instant if it was on a showroom floor.

nathanOJ   Sorry to hear about your father....as 1990LS400 has mentioned, if it is in great condition and being an up and coming classic then a specialist dealer in prestige cars should be able to sell this for you on a commision and get a great price for it whilst displaying it in a clean, dry showroom.

Alternatively, you should be able to list it on this forum's For Sale section with no restrictions now.

Good luck with the sale

Hi Nathan. I apologize for not connecting with you sooner. I am always amazed at the depth of friendship and caring that can be built with someone you have never met nor never knew what they looked like. The LOC is a place where those who enjoy their hobby can find others who like swapping stories with like minded friends.

Landar was a great part of the LOC and was a great source of Lexus info and technical help.

Thank you for letting us share your journey.

Paul
