The clearcoat would go bad quick and the nail polish would probably eat into the paint. I wouldn't.

Thanks - "Drive more, worry less" seems to be good advice!

180 degree V6? Didn't Ferrari refer to some of their flat 12 engines as 180 degree V12's? Maybe because their engines had opposing cylinders share rod journals on the crank though?

Chances are the majority are overseas so local authorities wouldn't be able to do anything and they're too small time for the FBI. They just want to lighten your wallet of a few hundred bucks and then move on to the next mark. They work on your greed for wanting to be the 1st to grab the unbelievable deal they're offering, so they ask you to send them a down payment in order to hold it for you. It's sort of impressive how they adapt and evolve. Too bad it's not for the betterment of mankind.

I totally agree with your last statement. Esp the ones who scam the elderly (not necessarily thru car ads). That is the lowest of low.

I liked the one comment to the Haggerty article where the guy said he's never had a problem buying a used car on Craigslist because he only buys cars from Ward Cleaver or his neighbor.

One of my pet peeves with Craigslist ads is when sellers say "no dealers." I think what they really mean is no used car dealers who will show up with a wad of cash that is half or less of what the seller is asking for the car and try to get you to sell too cheaply. I once had one of these guys show up and just told him no deal. The last car I sold on Craigslist was to a used car dealer who offered me a very fair price, very quick and painless. I don't care who buys something I'm selling as long as they are willing to make a good deal.

Ultra low mileage S/E 6spd. No mention of IMS, so probably not addressed. Ad says 'local only' - yeah like he'd turn down $19K from someone out of state.

Without doing much (well...any) research, I'll hat-in-hand ask this: for a S/E with 11k miles, that's not too bad a price is it? Assuming it passes PPI, etc.

The ultra-low mileage drives the price up on this one. You'd want to do the IMS on one that's sat around this much, that's another $3K. There have been several SEs that have sold on BAT in the $20s and they weren't this low mileage. I've seen several for sale for $16 that had 60-70K mi and were tips. So price is decent / market correct if you want this low mileage.

Aren't you supposed to be waiting for a certain LE to hit the mkt?

This one's not exactly #005, but it's practically new.
