Flaking and Why It's Wrong

So after 2 flakes in a row, I finially find an awesome car, that I can afford (He posted to my WTB ad here on FF). Very clean, low miles, lots of new parts, and a supercharger. Want 6.5 butI got him down to 6 by having him switch his custom header for the stock SVT head and cat, seemed like a fair deal. I go to the bank get my loan approved, but when I go back to pick up the check, the bank is closed for the weekend. I told him, "consider it sold." I'd have the check monday and we could meet sometime this week when he was available. So today I text him asking if he had a day in mind yet, and he tells me he's pulling the supercharger and selling it to someone else. But we had a deal, right? Guess not. Now I got no car, a loan thats for a car thats no longer worth the value of said loan, a up credit score after I go to cancel this loan, and the urge to drive 2 hours north to beat the shit out of someone I've never met.
Long story short, a deal is a deal, you're only worth as much as you're word.

Moving this to "Vendor, Dealer & Seller Reviews". While I agree that it's a shitty way to deal with someone. But he does have the right to do what he wants with the car since you have not put the cash directly in his hand.
