Some time ago I heard a story about an auc­tion­eer who was not ex­actly po­lite when it came to deal­ing with po­ten­tial ven­dors. He’d of­ten end up in­sult­ing the would-be seller’s car. In­sult that per­son’s car, and you’re in­sult­ing them too. It’s not pleas­ant, and it’s cer­tainly not pro­fes­sional.

I had a re­cent ex­pe­ri­ence when I wanted to put a car through a sale and the auc­tion­eer didn’t want it – no rea­son given, just it wasn’t wanted. Fair enough, but it didn’t make me look for another auc­tion­eer. In­stead, it en­cour­aged me to pile in and get it sorted out.

And that’s ex­actly what I’m do­ing, be­cause the car didn’t cost me much, parts are eas­ily avail­able and at the end of the day I’ll have a us­able, un­usual mo­tor.
