DO ASSUME THESE FACTS CAN BE PROVED AS STATED HERE.
Victor Tremont has a classic muscle car that he fixed up and has enjoyed drag racing. He has kept it well maintained. Much as he loves the car, Victor finds himself in need of cash. He parks the car on his front yard, with a large sign on the windshield that says, “Cherry of a classic car, For Sale $4,900 or Best Offer. AS-IS.”
Gloria Goget drives by and sees the car. She is immediately enamored and stops to look at it. She is sure the car is worth more than the asking price. When she knocks on the front door, there is no response; she looks around, and decides nobody is home, so she takes her business card and on the back writes, ” I will pay you $5,500 cash for your classic car.” She signs her name, and dates it, including the time, and slips the card onto the windshield of the car under the wiper blade.
About a half hour later, Victor returns. He does not see Gloria’s card because he does not walk around and look at the car. A few minutes after he is home, his buddy, Levi Lord, pulls in to look at the car. Levi has always liked the car and has gone racing with Victor. Levi offers Victor $5,000 even for the car, and Victor accepts. The two men shake hands on the deal. Victor goes in the house to get the car title while Levi writes out a check to Victor for $5,000.
Victor comes out with the title in his hand. As Levi starts to hand him the check, Gloria pulls in. She has an envelope of $5,500 cash for the car. Victor says to Gloria,”sorry, but I have just sold the car to Levi here.” Gloria objects and says she already offered $5,500 earlier.
When Victor says, “No, you didn’t,” she marches him to the car and shows him her card.
“There is my offer, I already left you before. You weren’t home and now I have the money right here,” she said.
Victor turns to Levi, “Sorry, she did leave this offer, I’m going to sell it to her for more money.”
Levi objects, stating, “You just said you already sold it to ME. We shook hands on it. You cannot back out now just because some card was floating around no one knew about. She wasn’t even here! She’s a loser too late!”
While the three of them stand in the yard arguing, Jack Bucksworthy drives in the yard. He gets out of his Cadillac, looks at the muscle car, and moseys over to the three arguing people. He asks, “who owns that hot rod for sale?”
“I do,” says Victor.
“No, I do,” says Levi.
“It’s MY Car,” snaps Gloria.
“I’ll pay whichever of you, $8,000 for that car,” says Jack, “but only if the engine starts.”
Victor answers, “Of course it starts. I accept your offer.”
Levi hollers, “NO! That car is no longer for sale! I bought it! It’s mine! I’m not selling it!” (Waving the check in Victor’s face.)
Gloria stomps over to the muscle car, grabs the sign off it, and sits on the hood. “It’s my car. I was here before all of you and I have real money in hand.” she yells, waving her envelope over her head.
Victor says to Jack,” Pay no attention to them. I have the title — right here. My car. Let’s start the car.”
YOU BE THE JUDGE. DECIDE WHO GETS THE CAR.
USING THE ABOVE FACTS, DISCUSS AND ANSWER THE FOLLOWING:
identify the contract issues you see here.
Applying the principles of contract law, who gets the car, if anyone, and for how much? Explain your reasoning using the definitions and principles of contract provided in Lessons, required readings and any other research you do.
In terms of making an offer, what is the legal significance of Jack Bucksworthy’s statement, “only if the engine starts?”
