    Van die bietjie wat ek al met Gary te doen gehad het, glo ek Gary se kant...

    Gee thanks guys (getting a warm, fuzzy feeling here......no, I said FUZZY, not FLUFFY)

    I've got nothing to gain here, its not about the money its about the way this wanker operates.
    The last thing I want to do is make my name gat on the forum.
    I just don't like the bullshyte.
    Tell it like it is, hell, if he was honest upfront, I would actually share the history to try and help him.....

    As for the payment issue, everything was discussed before driving around Cape Town looking for the Landy.
    I told Javier that I am running a business as such and don't work for free, he accepted that.
    It was then asked if I could repair it on site, not a chance. Unless, of course, you can tell me exactly whats causing the lock-up.
    It was then discussed how to get the Landy back to my shop.
    I was pushed for a price and guesstimated R6k on the spot, this would exclude the run around (which would be written off - if I got the job) and also excluded the recovery cost.

    Dude then asked if he could strip the Landy at my shop to cut costs. This is where it went south. I was very diplomatic and explained to him that it would take him 3 times as longer than normal and that I didn't want him working/falling over stuff in my shop (that privilege is reserved for my buddies)
    It ended where he was going to get prices to get the Landy to my shop. Thats when the calls stopped and he stopped answering his phone.
    Bottom line - I didn't get the job and I expect to be paid as agreed, for the joy ride.

    This dude squatted in my shop for 5 weeks....gratis and is expecting another freebie.

    Dude was married to Barbie...

    Got married in the States, couple of days later he gets booted (visa problems)
    They moved to Spain, traveled Europe for 9 months in a Golf.
    Bought the Santana, came down the west coast (6 months)
    Ended up on Melkbos beach, met Rob (?) which led them to my shop.
    After 6 years Barbie called it quits.
    Barbie is alive, well and living in Alaska.

    Gary, I think something very important is being overlooked here.

    where are the pictures of Barbie breaking your **ahem** power bar?

    Haha...dirty old man..

    Remember the Scope magazine in the 70's. I grew up thinking that women had stars instead of "bits".....

    Boy oh boy was I surprised

    And Jeep owners still celebrate this to this very day by placing "Stars" on their doors.

    I had a girlfriend that was a Scope centre fold. In fact she also in one of the first hustlers a year later.

    I was surprised when I saw the stars in the Scope.

    I never understood. What was under the stars was perfectly lovely. why did people want to cover those bits with stars? were they scared?

    Hustler guys were far more tasteful.

    Putting this in context, one really has to resist the temptation of calling Jeep owners a bunch of t......ts.

    I have NEVER condoned the rather tasteless practice of putting a star onto anything at all.

    Censorship I tell you!
