Test drive it. See if you might like it. With a few tweaks that car should run like a scalded dog. Or add a turbo and have sleeper car to blow off Camaros at the stop light.

I'm keeping dads 2015 Impala for awhile. I would never even look at buying one until now. Now I'm think on buying it when the time comes, but I don't really need it.

Do you need the money now? If so, check to make sure the paperwork on the car is clear and if so, take the title and sell it. Even if you can't get the $4k owed, at least you got something. If you can wait, write up a contract stating that he agrees to pay the full price owed by X date or you are authorized to retake possession of the tractor. Make sure to take it to a notary to have it signed. The longer you wait the more excuses he is going to come up with not to pay. If he didn't have the money upfront that means he really couldn't afford to buy it in the first place. Do something now, don't wait any longer.

OP, they're going for around 6K here. If that's the only way you will get paid, take it.

Just learn the lesson about business between friends; money comes over first.

I am with the bird in the hang thought here.

Take the Buick.

You might get $3k or $5k but either way the deal is settled and over and doesn't get ugly.

That Buick would make a really classy Donk. If you get it, I'll buy it from you. I'm gonna need to make payments though. I should be able to pay it off in 2 months. Cool?

Depends on how bad you need the money. If you are strapped, take the Buick and put it up for sale for the cash you need and move on. If you aren't, and want to keep the guy in your circle of friends, offer him a way out. Tell him you will take the title and get it sold. Offer him a cut over the money owed if he helps you sell it. Everybody walks out whole. If you don't give a fuck about the dude, take the tractor or the car whichever you can move faster.

However it turns out, life lesson. Don't finance to people who are friends, you lose money and friends that way. Don't finance to family because it gets ugly for all the people in between you that are forced to choose sides. Don't finance to strangers cause you can't trust them. I think that covers everyone.

Simple. Unless the car is worth at least $1K more than he owes you, tell him to sell it and give you the cash you agreed on. You've already gone beyond the original agreement with him so there should be no hard feelings. Just lay it out plainly, no need to be a Dick about it and you should still be able to be friends. Consider it a life lesson...IF you LEARN from this.

I'm leaning in the no just pay me direction.

He's 2 1/2 months late on the first payment. Go get the tractor back, once you have it, take a baseball bat and kneecap him, then pee in his wife's butt and take pics.

I own a similar vehicle Grand Prix GXP. To LS4 fanboys the Super is rare and cool. A couple things to know. The trans doesn't hold up to the V8 well and can be problematic (4t65e). The DOD likes to have lifters go bad. If you're just going to flip it, drive the piss out of it and make sure it's solid. Drive it for a while and make sure the trans is up to temp and not getting too hot. Then look up what those are realistically selling for in your area and decide if it's worth it.

That's a FWD as well. That is a block specific to the LS4. It's not the same as truck 5.3 blocks. The only real interest in them for swaps is the fiero crowd.

Go to it to Carmax and see what they'd give you for it. If more than 4k, then yes take it

More curious why you gave it to him without full payment. You can't do that with anything.
This.

OP, have anything else I can lease for free?
