Ridiculous offers for big blue

This is the second time I've had someone throw me a serious offer. 10,000 cash for my truck. The highest I've gotten...12,500 no joke folks!!! If I don't get asked atleast once a day at work if I'm selling the truck it's odd. What's the highest offer y'all have gotten? And if you were me would you sell the truck?

Did they want to write you a check for 25,000.00 and have you send the truck and the change to them?

I had a legit offer for $20,000 from a top fuel funny car team owner. Just couldn't bring myself to go through with it.

The most common question I get asked is,"Does it even run?" and that's no joke. Before I did all my own work on my rig, my mechanic offered to buy it but we did not get to $ figures because it's definitely not for sale. It's going to be a long time before mine is as nice as yours, but I agree with the earlier post...BIG PICTURES so we can see what makes people value our rigs.

I had mine parked in the driveway the first week when some guy pulled up and knocked on the door and asked if it was for sale.

No prices were mentioned, but I wasn't about to part with it.

That's happened to me twice.....the most recent was a guy looking for a big "safe" vehicle for his daughters first car....he offered me 3K....I probably should have gone for it, but that big stupid jeep has got some kind of hold on me

ive had plenty of compliments on mine, which i think is funny enough. its not nice. a friend gave it to me and i had to put a ton of work into it. 8 months later when he saw it was road worthy again, he did offer to buy it back. i told him id think about it. told my wife i was going to ask if he could just give me what i put into it, i really should get rid of a vehicle or 2. wife told me NO.

That's a nice truck! I'm partial to the clean/shiny look over the muddy look.

No wonder you have to turn down offers all the time.

Nice!

I never get offered anything for my Wagoneer. But I do get compliments from time to time, and occasionally someone asks me what it is...

Now, I get people all the time asking if I want to sell my 300zx. If someone ever offered me enough, I reckon I'd sell my Wagon... And then go buy another. But I know "enough" is more than I'll ever get offered!!

If you can't make it better why waste your time. No use repeating the orignal mistakes. I'm to old to push it that's why.

For $10,000 I'd let all three of mine go along with every FSJ part I have around here - including the 401 of unknown condition sitting on a cradle. But then there is the fact that they're all projects in process...
