friends? really?

Dealing with friends with business/money is nothing more than a total bucket of shit, I dont care how long you have known them and your their kids godparent whatever or how deep your connection is they will fuck you the second things are not working out!
TAKE WHATEVER YOU CAN GET YOUR HANDS ON RIGHT NOW!!! TAKE HIS CAR TAKE HIS HOUSE WHATEVER THERE IS TAKE IT NOW!!!!!! In two weeks when he has declared bankruptcy and you get NOTHING you will really wish you had!!!!
Good luck!

jaluhn Take the tractor back. Thank him for the 2 month lease payment he made, and note that when he pays the rest he can have your tractor back. Or he can pay you what he owes now.

McCracken I'd tell him that although you appreciate the offer, right now you need cash in hand. That car may run but you never know what kind of shit the PO put it through.

Until now.....

thumping I think your idea of "friend" is a little different than mine. With friends like that kind of thing. And considering he's already fucking you over (if the car was worth 4k why doesn't he sell it and give you the cash?) if you call him out, he will use his police status to fuck you over as much as possible.

In other words, you're fucked on this deal and you should learn to choose your friends more wisely.

So he personally pulls you over. Then gives you a warning, several times? Or do you immediately start telling Barney you know Andy and all is well?

If you're buddy is a cop and has the connections, he might be in that car for $500. That said, at this point, its either take the car or repo the tractor, there is no option C of waiting on the cash. The car looks to be of about $4k value and honestly I think would be easier to sell than an old Massey. The longer this goes on, the less likely you are to get anything.
What difference does it make what he's into it? I'm into the tractor about half that but that has zero relevance to what it's worth and is nobody's business but mine.

And, you must have a shit circle of friends that would think you're being a dick about somebody who didn't pay for something. I buy and sell among friends with no problem. The money is handed over when the item is handed over.

Go repossess the tractor. And document everything. I am sure a CHP officer can also make life difficult for you too.

PROJECTJUNKIE I don't like cops, and i don't like being owed money.

But, if somebody did owe me money, I'd rather it was a cop, with a pretty bomb proof income, that was somewhat tied to not being sued or having ethical/ financial problems.

I have been owed money by a buddy that was in law enforcement, my needs changed in a hurry and he made it right, got me other liquid assets that I could liquidate quickly.

Finding out he's a cop, my tune changes to making things in text, so there's a bit of a record, hey man, the 4 grand kind of jams me up, but I'm not sure I want tu hassle with selling your buick, what of timeline are you thinking? Then deal with collecting the money, in full, but late.

BDK The friend's base salary is about 8K a month without overtime. Any transfer he made was voluntary as he cannot be compelled to transfer. There is lots of voluntary overtime in any position he could work. Whenever you see a CHP car parked in a lane closure on the freeway, the officers sitting in the car are on overtime. 3-4 12 hour shifts on one of those details would generate enough to pay you off. I know guys who are nearly doubling their income with voluntary overtime. He should be able to afford to pay you what he owes without selling a car. Have him pull the money out of his 457 or 401 to pay you. Getting you out of "expensive tickets" sounds like he does not take the moral high ground in life so why do you expect this deal to end well?

Everybody saying "wait for cash" is missing the point

The car might be worth 3 or 5, but you can get it today. It's a settlement, not an ideal arrangement.

Who's to say he won't sell the car and have another sad story?

Is taking the tractor back not an option? If you don't want to openly be a dick, then tell him you've got some projects you do with it. Once he's got the cash, your project is done
I think this as well. But sucks to have to unload a car.

Yes it runs. Needs new rubber and hyd hoses. I was going to ask 5500 but never got around to it, I took those pics 2-3 years ago. It has maybe 1 hr of use in last decade.

For others asking questions. No I do not need the money but I like money so I want it. He is a chp officer and has gotten me out of some expensive tickets and I want to keep that connection in my pocket so to speak which is a lot of why I am willing to work with him. I have financed a sale to friends before and it has always worked out. Also every time I do I know in my mind I may get fawked so only do it with things I can afford to lose if shit goes south. I will get the money eventually I'm sure of it I just don't know when eventually is. Right after we did the deal he was transferred and took a significant pay cut due to loss of overtime so I agreed to wait for the tax return which will probably be another couple months. Then he proposed this to me yesterday.
