I previously mentioned the rusty old Saab I aquired from my 17 y/o cousin. I sorta liked it, ran and drove fine after some tweaking. Long story. My lil cousin graduated from HS this summer and at his party, the neighbour's son, who is 30-ish gave him the keys to the Saab that had been sitting (not running) in their backyard for YEARS. It was partly a gag gift, to be able to say "yeah, I gave you a car". My cousin was gratefull, but already had a new truck and was on his 4th vehicle in a year, his parents were tired of registering and selling cars, etc, so the Saab sat in HIS backyard for a month or two. My lil cousin is a wheeler-dealer, he wanted some cash and I worked him good on a deal. Got him down to $200...franky the car was not worth much more. I took the car home months ago and they (my lil cousin and his mom) had the title, blank waiting for a signature. No big deal, I did not really know if I wanted to sell it or keep it, likely I was going to offer it f/s $500, BitOG Members have first crack. I did a lil work, mostly cleaning the 2in of pine needles, scraping some rust, fluids and filters, cleaning snot off the windows. I was about 1/2 way done with it. The PO were wierd about the whole thing, badgering my older cousin who takes care of her Alzhimers Mom and stroke-ridden Dad in a paranoid way....psycho. They have been neighbours for 30 years and I have been around them for a long time too. Not a real friendship, but politeness and I've been over to their messy house, etc. So, I came down to get the title transfered yesterday. The Dad cancelled on me because of their "confusion" as to whose name was on the title. So, I went to the Notary and asked if they could just have the guy come in and sign. I was told to just put my name on the title, give it to the PO and let them come get it notarized. Ok, I went to their house with my older cousin and gave the title to the 30 y/o son "owner"/driver for his dad to sign. I remarked I liked the car, we ALL laughed, the son now has a new Mazda-3....no problem. Later, my older cousin (lil cousin's dear mom) gets a call from the psyco PO "mom"..."we want the car back"(!) Citing "conditons" and that they gave it to my lil cousin, not me. My lil cousin later produced his graduation card from them "Enjoy the Saab"!!! I called the PO/neighbour/mom/son today and explained that ok, I would make the car available (1st step) but I had done a lot of work (polished paint and all the other things I mentioned) and basicly wanted $100 for my work and $200 I gave my lil cousin for it. They said no, it was "my problem" that I worked on the car and they were "going to (come) get it". They were abusive and would not follow a logical explaination of events. So, my older cousin begged me to return the car and SHE paid me the $300! I was pizzed, rightly. The neighbours bullied her into something they could not get away with in the Real World nor in dealing with me. I am still mad, but am glad it's over. My cousin was supportive and really needs to have no problems with them, her "friends". Can you believe neighbours of 30 years would make a crazy scene and stink over a car that has one foot in the junkyard? The mom there is crazy. After me telling my older cousin everything was ok last night, I thought about it and called the neighbours today to sorta explain that I had worked on the car and was under no (legal) obligation to "give it back". Well, I did not like that they bullied my cousin and wanted to deter than from doing ________ like that to my family again and set and example for my lil cousin how to NOT give-in to psychos and bullies. So, yeah, the 5ft tall PO/son told me he would "kick my arse". Ten of his friend would not be able to do that, I'm 6ft, solid 220 construction worker from the city who can take a punch. lol. I did not make it easy for the PO and still kept my cousin from over-stressing, she's a Cathloic School teacher for gods sake! I walked a fine line. Did I do ok?
