thanks for all the advice, though all negative.


You're right, it's all a bit heavy, it's only a car for God's sake! You're entitled to be happy and make your own decisions. You should buy the car, your'e OK dealing with Mike so I say go for it.  :drink:

Im after 67 convertible 4 20k

Landed in Aus. or 20k purchase price in the USA?

This one in Fresno is a little out of your budget at 24k but you'll have add $ to ship it here and you may be able to bargain it down some.

Also ... get it inspected!

Are you expecting a project, 10 footer or a nice car?

At 20k you are unlikely to get a good one.

Sorry to be one of the negative ones, but you came here for advise so it is advise you shall have. We have seen it all before. We could sugar coat it all & be really positive & tell you what you want to hear. BUT that would sort of defeat the purpose of good advise.

Why has Tones deleted all his posts? They have all been quoted in other posts anyway and there was nothing bad that I could see. What's up Tones67?

I suspect I know why he's deleted them. 67 Scotty knows the rogue (MM) pretty well by now and I reckon he'll know why. No loss, as long as the thread is kept for the next poor soul needing to check up on him. A leopard doesn't change his spots.

well im back. Had alot of thinking & investigating to do. Felt like I had to delete my posts as i had to try & burn MM. I noticed that he does jump on here and some might know him, either way dont care now. I found the seller, waited for him (62 year old retiree) to unlock his agreement with MM. Told him the story of lies by MM to both of us and dealt with him direct. Also got the car for around $9k less all up. Arranged my own shipping (thru a friend) including the never ending paperwork required, received the permit and its eta is 18 June. I do appreciate all the feedback i did receive especially StephenSLR. If you do your research and never give in you can find a bargain. I have been lucky that the seller was very forthcoming and at times too much by providing never ending info.

Thanks.

The past few months have been a good time to buy with lots to choose from.

I can't stress enough to be patient, do the research, see what similar cars are fetching, etc.

Another thing to keep in mind, right now the AUD has sunk to below parity 0.97c, some say it'll go lower, others are saying our economy is good.  I can't predict how it'll perform but shifting by @ 3.5 cents can cost you $1,000 AUD on a 30k transaction.

If it's no rush it can be worth waiting a few weeks to see if it bounces back or holding off till it does.

Hi all.


looks like we`ve neutralised MotorMentor(or now known as) Californiamusclecars. He hasn`t sold a car since May2011. Check out his Ebay account.

http://feedback.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback2&userid=californiamusclecars&ftab=AllFeedback

I did notice a few strange buys by him on his (Buyer/Seller) profile. He was buying 1000s of facebook likes. Weird!!!!!!!!!!!

Looks like he's back at it again;

Though he is selling on the ebay UK site.. I guess he ran out of business here in Aus!  :hmm3grin:

Well,Well,well..... Just noticed on his EBay site he is no longer a registered user. Good thing. Better keep an eye out though. He may pop up under a new name.
