Me too. But idk why but the ad seems fishy. The yahoo email address instead of using the CL one. Maybe i'm just over thinking.

I can't see the ad from work. What I'll usually do is to choose a distinctive phrase from the ad and do a Google search of it. Lots of times, the same ad is placed in many cities.

Good idea. I put the email address listed into google and nothing came back. I'll try this too.

But, I emailed the guy. Who knows, maybe it'll just be a nice parts car.

Idk, the ad just says "Hudson Valley" which is a big part of upstate NY. It could be anywhere from 45 minutes to 3 hours.

Maybe He is on his 3rd transmission and is just sick and tired of it.

Or the motor is blown....

Or he can't get it inspected....


Or, or, or......

Depending where it is it might not be too far from me, I emailed him as well. Looks just like my 1A2, but with comfortable seats.

Got an email back:

"The car needs engine, tires, brakes (which I have brand new in box...never got to put on). Water pump and thermostat replaced, but still overheats. No rust. Mileage between 60-70k. Located in Newburgh. Make offer"

Car is closer to you 95BRMW. Might be a good parts donor...

Then there is Lynol's 51k 94 Caprice that didn't look too bad until you looked underneath it. I emailed them back (got the same replay you did), definitely want to see this one in person.

This IS true. I'm still amazed how rotted that car is for how few miles it has.

I finally looked at the ad. First off, by not posting a price, they are violating the Craigslist TOS. It's not an auction site. There is no picture of under the hood, which usually shows the rust on the fenders. I don't think it's a scam, but I don't think the guy is terribly honest.

If I sent someone an email asking the price, and he responded with "make an offer," I would either walk, or make a ridiculously low offer. I don't have a lot of tolerance for people who play games.
