Some people.....

I went and looked at an old Snap-On tool chest, $50 for the top and incorrect bottom which was not snap on. The top box was circa 1960's ish..

Anyways, I get there check it out and the old man asks where my front plate is from. I tell him, Germany. He then asks, you German? I reply with a " a bit"

He then calls me a Nazi.... Well, I'm done.. no sale


I can't believe some people.

Does this car feature an OBK grill badge? I've gotten a few funny looks, but never a comment.

Those problems and the others could have bought your car at asking price 5 plus times over. Please excuse my melt down. You set such a good example in the past I thought I'd give it a try. Very therapeutic.

I can't believe some people.
probably did you a favor, a good tool box is like a good computer monitor, its what you see and use everyday so its important. wait and pay a little more rather than have something you hate but cant scrap because it is functional.

There were plenty of Germans who were not members of the Nazi party. The man's comment shows a lack of understanding of basic history.
