Motorsports may or may not be a crook. Negative or positive comments as to ethics and honesty are fair game. I just re-read your original post and your only point was that the car was not improved and that the price had increased. As for "value added", there are many ways that a business adds value to a product. As much as you may have a reason to not like Gullwing
, you have no reason to complain that a vehicle was sold for more than they paid for it even though they did not improve the car. That is exactly what dealers of anything new are doing and exactly what many dealers of used items do. I am not just talking about vehicles. Without profit your local merchants do not exist so what do you do then? Your story has nothing to do with business practices of Gullwing
. As for the condition of the car that you referred to I suggest that not 1% of 356s have led a kind life. We are not talking about a 2009 Benz with water damage that is being hidden.
I can't believe that you have run a car dealership after hearing your protest that a profit was made on your friends car. When a dealer buys a car they accept the liability of any problems that surface. Often you don't know until you own it. Look at the yellow car that Gullwing
has and note that the nose of the car fell off on the first drive in NY!
Then when the dealer can not get his price and he loses money, will the person that he bought the car from write a check to cover the losses? A dealer must attempt to hit a home run(limited by the market and not as much as you think) on every sale so that the losers don't sink the company. You win some and you lose some. It sounds to me like you should have bought your friend's car and sold it on Ebay for a modest profit.
You have heard of Ebay?
I would rather hear from a wronged customer of Gullwing
or one that likes them.
