This is Paul. Paul just bought the Safari. Paul handed me $3,000 in cash and never even started the car. He'd been ripped off twice in a row, the second time, by a guy who sold him a van without "Cadillac converters." So it wouldn't, couldn't possibly, pass smog. Paul's served hard time twice and now spends all of his time and effort in service of God, in service of others.
I'd listed the car for $4,800 initially, and I'd lowered it to $4,200. When he called -- and there's another story -- I asked him what his budget was and he said $3,800 and, having heard the first tidbits of his story, I told him he could have it for $3,000. But now he's paying me a substantial chunk of the $800 he saved to me, to install an inverter and a simple sleeping deck, procuring a charger and an inverter, blacking out the side windows -- he'll be sleeping in the van -- and other things.
Paul was the only person who called about the Safari. The. Only. Person. And when he first texted me, frankly, I thought he was another scammer, and I asked folks here what you thought. @WilliamsSW , @AestheticsInMotion , @Shop-Teacher all said the guy was likely legit and I should ping him back. I gotta thank you guys.
Paul left me with his $3,500 in cash, never having even started the car, and he's off to DMV to register it. I avoid discussing it here, but I will say that I subscribe, all-in, to a worldwide organized Christian faith, and this was definitely something that, as Paul put it, "had God in the midst," and that we had "found favor." Simply an amazing experience.
