I LOVE my new perfect H6!!!!!!!!!! AND it had a surprise waiting for us- it even had Eyesight!!! We didn't know since the ad didnt mention it. This site is great for all the help-thank you, especially Duncan :)
Now to figure out how to get rid of the old one.

But they're all running! I need to get a picture with them all together.

There is the blue bean, a white rust free limited, lil red, and a the VDC donor (now crushed but it's drive train and VDC system lives on in the Baja.
Ah, Little Red, Mr. @DavidPeab 's old possessed obsession. You need to post something on her epic WV thread to keep the Smithsonian people up to date on their future "piece de-resistance".

lol- i think it just sold in 7 mins! Unless it is a prank- they are sending a cashiers check via mail- letting us get it cleared- then will bring his mover to pick it up. How can it be that easy!??


Actually it could be a prank boohoo- two of the craiglist rules flagged: #1 and 4
  1. Do not provide payment to anyone you have not met in person.
  2. Beware offers involving shipping - deal with locals you can meet in person.
  3. Never wire funds (e.g. Western Union) - anyone who asks you to is a scammer.
  4. Don't accept cashier/certified checks or money orders - banks cash fakes, then hold you responsible.
  5. Transactions are between users only, no third party provides a "guarantee".
  6. Never give out financial info (bank account, social security, paypal account, etc).
  7. Do not rent or purchase sight-unseen—that amazing "deal" may not exist.
  8. Refuse background/credit checks until you have met landlord/employer in person.
  9. "craigslist voicemails" - Any message asking you to access or check "craigslist voicemails" or "craigslist voice messages" is fraudulent - no such service exists.
edit: looks like they might be legit after all- they are now mailing a normal check- not the cashiers. Still a bit wary!

Let me guess.

They're out of town on business/leave and it's exactly the car they wanted?
They never said- just texted my husband. Do you think it is scam with a normal check?
They said their movers would pick it up... once the check cleared. Asked 3 times to take the ad down- but I just edited to say 'Sale Pending' We have had 3 more people call about it so far.

ok yeah not getting a good feeling. Going to call the deal off - they were a bit too strong with us wanting to take the ad down. Which gave me a weird feeling straight off.

Dandys - have a quick convo with your bank about the best way to receive funds.
