    Is Advertising a car for sale okay at a Cars & Coffee Event?

    Hey Everyone!

    My Dad has made the decision to sell his 2002 Black Pontiac Firehawk. The Firehawk is the Trans Am from Pontiac that was sent to SLP for additional tuning and go fast parts if you didn't know.

    Knowing that a car is only worth what someone is willing to pay, I plan on trying to target F-Body and/or Firebird enthusiasts as this is a special car. Here are the reasons why it's a special machine:

    - 1 of 1501 made
    - Last year this car was built (2002)
    - Garage Kept
    - Non smoking single owner
    - No mechanical issues as it was maintained immaculately with all original SLP/Pontiac/GM parts
    - Full Service Record, Original Bill of Sale, and Window Sticker from Pontiac/SLP

    That being said, if I were to bring it to a Cars & Coffee event, can I let people know that it is for sale through for sale signs of some kind? I don't want to intrude on what Cars & Coffee is supposed to be, so I'm not sure if any unwritten rules (or written that I haven't seen) exist to prohibit this.

    Thanks for any advice or input!

    It depends, in hunt valley Maryland we have the largest event in the USA, it it not allowed by the property owner. I don't have a problem with it, but I would check with whoever runs it.

    I'm hoping someone from AG chimes in, as it is held at their facilities (the one in particular I am talking about).

    PM Sent as I don't know the rules of advertising cars on AGO publicly.

    Thanks for the suggestion! I was starting to poke around for forums and local F-Body/Firebird enthusiast clubs.

    I just sold my 2000 Firehawk on Autotrader (such a sad day :-( ). I paid 75 bucks for the "list it till it sells" ad, and I actually got a couple bucks more than my bottom dollar price (and ended up selling the car for $3250 more than I paid for it almost 5 years ago). I would look into that because people who know what they are looking for seem to run specific searches there.

    That being said, I don't see why anyone would have an issue with you trying to sell a car at Cars & Coffee....

    ls1tech is tough to sell a car like that because those guys are enthusiasts and will nitpick every little thing. They are also acutely aware of what the cars are going for and what they're worth.

    It depends on the circumstances of the case.

    Thanks for the confirmation/reassurance, Meghan!

    Soon I'll be taking it to various events to try and build up some hype and hopefully attract a buyer.
