Everyone knew the state this car was in and that it needed pretty much a complete restoration to be a properly neat/working car again.
You have always had a chip on your shoulder Michael, there must always be an issue with someone when it comes to you and even if there isn't, you'll end up creating one.
Yes, the seller is a friend, but not even I would've bought that car because of the amount it work it needs. It will take a super long time to get that car up to standard again. To be honest I definitely think you realized that only after you bought it and now regret your decision. I would regret it too, but 10/10 would not try and make it the sellers problem to try get out of it. Its actually fcuking disgusting.
This seems like a personal attack on me, using my own thread as a platform. Not sure where you find the relevance but nonetheless. Justifying the value of the car against what was received, to me, shows that you have missed the point completely. I wouldn't have paid any amount for what I received, and you seem to share the same sentiment, but the non-disclosure of certain critical items robbed me of the ability to make an informed decision. I was in no way expecting a show car (as I clearly opened with).
In your own words:
but not even I would've bought that car because of the amount it work it needs
If you had read my post properly, I made a calculated decision, which was, unfortunately, based quite heavily on trust in the seller. If I had known of half of the issues (work it needs), I would never have even considered it. But now I'm just repeating myself, you can read the original post if you are still unsure.

100% correct, I went on what I was told, what was presented to me as the condition of the vehicle, which was unfortunately very far from the reality of what I received. The disclosed issues I weighed up and decided that it would be feasible to fix and use my own labour and knowledge to rebuild and enjoy, expecting me to anticipate everything that wasn't disclosed is just not reasonable. But yes in a way I should have known better than to trust someone that I hadn't met.
