As many of you know, I have tried, on this forum, to warn potential customers of Lawing and SAS to STAY AWAY! at all costs. I have also tried to keep a close eye on his output, which is impossible to do remotely.
Unless others have more knowledge than I do, it may be inaccurate to say that SAS isn't producing cars. I think what well-meaning commentators mean to say is that SAS isn't delivering cars to those that we know about on the list. There is a big difference in those two positions.
The sad but irrefutable fact is that none of us knows how many buyers are in the queue, or, even sadder, how many queues there are. Think of it this way: Lawing completes a replica for which the buyer has already paid $18,000 in two or more payments. If Lawing sellls it to the buyer, that's $18,000 less than he could get from a fresh fish, a new guy that hasn't paid anything. Of course, a sense of morality, decency, and fair play would dictate that the first guy in line, whom the car was made for, should get it. However, that's not how things work in Lawing world.
I have gone from anger and righteous indignation to outrage to disgust to pity. I hate what he did to me and others, but life goes on and it takes too much time and energy to hold a grudge indefinitely. I have no idea if karma really exists, but it does give me a warm feeling when I contemplate a cosmic weighing of the scales for certain individuals.
