ATTN: Charlottesville tire changer owners

SST and I would like to buy into it and as I understand it, Steve is willing to sell his two shares. As you know, it will eventually have to leave where it is now and I'm about a mile away. I'm willing to buy two shares provided it ends up here, but it doesn't make sense for me to buy into it at all if it doesn't.

Given that Steve is now so far away and there are also two tire changers in NoVa, it sounds reasonable to me that we buy Steve's two shares and one from someone up north. However, this isn't my decision to make; the group of current owners should settle this and simply tell us what to do. The machine has already moved farther away from some of the owners so maybe more people want to get out of it.

I have space for the changer and I'll have even better space in a few months. I also have compressed air 24/7 and a damned good asssortment of tools. I'm centrally located for the Albemarle folks. However, if the changer comes here it will be for the use of the owners only. No way do I want some stranger walking in saying "I am a friend of so-and-so and he said..." so if you want to help your friend out, you'll have to come here yourself or he will need to buy in. If you want, I guess it is possible to collect a fee from such people which would be used to buy out people who now live too far away. I was part of a similar deal in PA and it worked out really well.

Anyway, if I don't hear from folks in a week or two, SST and I will just figure out what to do... probably making offers to the people living farthest away (Steve and Jabba?).

Harvey and Ed, ya'll sell your shares first and get out...I'll stay in.

How about we get the changer and sell it outright and divide the money back up or have the changer taken back up north? The only fair thing to do is move it north or sell it and divide so that all that purchased can get some value back. Other wise two will sell their shares and the rest of us will be burdened by the distance to use. I am not making decisions for all, just discussing options.

Harvey, what is wrong with your garage? Or you eap???

You guys interested in buying it outright down there in Cville?

Another option is to list it on Flea Bay. I know we will not have a problem selling it.

How many shares are there? Grimmy mentioned that he might want to get in; and I think there are one or two owners in this area, aren't there? So if I buy two, SST, maybe Grimmy, Neal, whoever else is local, Steve you indicated that you'd be willing to keep one share... Plus new people will show up. If I have to, I could probably float a few more shares but I'd be looking to sell them as time goes on.

Anyway, I guess there are a few more shareholders we haven't heard from.

Unless the current owners can settle on a workable new location for the changer, I think the best option is to sell it outright and split up the take amongst the owners in the same proportion they bought. My garage is pretty small, I don't own it, and I don't know how long I'll be living here (hopefully not too much longer), so I think my place is not a good option.

How many of the current owners are interested in continuing their ownership if it stays in C'ville? That might help determine whether we should just sell it.

Aren't you a current owner? Don't talk about talking about it, say what you want.

I'm glad it seems so complicated to you. More interesting that way, I hope.

For those in a decision-making capacity on this issue, Charlottesville will be able to buy five or six of the shares pretty easily. If you want to sell it on eBay, we'll bid on it there.
