    I ran into some scammers this week. One picture post with nice car and good deal. Sends me email about losing husband 3 months ago etc etc. I caught on when the words “ship the car to you” came up for a car only 5 hours away that I would have gladly driven to and paid cash for. Long story short, they wanted to use eBay motors for payment. Sent a really move looking invoice. Yes so when you call the number at the bottom of that invoice, you get some asshole overseas. The number doesn’t work now.

    Had the same thing over Christmas. Sent me a eBay motors invoice. None of the links worked.

    Yep, I inquired about a model A and they give me the widow story and wanted me to pay thru ebay motors (car was on craigslist) or in some odd way. I asked for a picture of a dated newspaper on the seat of the car. Then all of a sudden the car was in a different state since the lady had moved. It was my time to move on as well!
  6. I can't believe you guys missed this! She took 11k for it and it's now sitting in my garage...

    when you get a free moment, can you take a pic of the
    "Torque Tube Style Axle with Open Differential" ?
    I don't recall having seen one of those in a while.

    That's funny, I am dating the widow and driving the car! She buys the gas, and hauls my ashes.
  14. Y'all are just jealous! I am now engaged to her daughter who is a "Nigerian Princess" and is inheriting millions! (Not a half-bad cook either!)
  15. I have a bridge in Brooklyn for sale.
    I'll take payments.
