|coreyeroc||I would keep on them, and buy it for whatever low ball price you can - its not like THEY"RE going to do a 16v turbo/trans swap - this thing will see the crusher before too long. You said yourself the body is in LIKE NEW condition - where in the heck else are you going to find one this rare, and in such amazing shape (body-wise) again?|

|DeLorean||So I just looked, and " this user is no longer registered with ebay" Huu. Wonder why... Anyway As much of a shame as this was, I will not be going back for it. I do not have another day to waste in Kensington. If anyone else is interested in "giving it a try" PM me for this places contact info and it's yours. The car deserves better, but I already gave it my try. It's someone elses turn.|

hope it didnt get crushed , that car was a scream to drive.

|DeLorean||I will call them this Friday and see if they have totally killed it yet.|

|BurnsSide42||so you given up on this one? Have you called them/they called you? See if it's "running" yet - or offer low again.|
|08-25-2009 02:44 PM|
Wow. What a story.
Too bad you didn't come home with a car, but you made it out alive.
|08-25-2009 12:20 PM|
I actually told Paul before we went there, "had I known this place was in Kensington, I never would have bid" Their location comes up as being out near Pittsburgh when you lookup their ebay address. Oh well...

|Deek||Kensington.. What did you expect guys?|

That really sucks, man. You should call them and see if they'll take your offer now.

|Sedan||Ugh, sorry to hear how it turned out. How did these idiots end up with such a nice car to begin with?|
|08-24-2009 08:07 PM|
ooh! I think I know that car, did it have gold shelbys on it? that guy was on crack, tried to get that from him for years, but he wanted way too much money for it, kept going on about the engine being rebuilt, yeah, sure buddy. It sat there for at least 10 years, only went away recently, presumably to the crusher, sad.

It was really quite incredible, pretty much the only way it could have gone worse would be if my car got stolen while we were in the "office". I've had some sketchy car buying experiences before, but this really took the cake. Jeff didnt even mention that the head "mechanic" had one arm that was majorly smaller than the other...creepy.

I once went to pickup a 99t in newpaltz ny with "fresh new paint job", it turned out to have rust bubbling back thru the fender lips already and the entire hood was in primer due to moose humping on the hood...or something like that....turned around and drove home too.

|aireeca||Wow. Just wow. I kinda wish I had been there. Kinda.|
|08-24-2009 07:21 PM|
|bruceinmiami||thats a hell of a story. more pics would have really been welcome. like the car under fire...or the the cat glowing...or...|
|08-24-2009 07:16 PM|
Oh man that was a funny story, sorry it couldn't have had a happier ending. That looks like it was a nice car before it got pumped full of diesel and that interior is awesome.
That ad is pretty sketchy, I trust you tried the fancy electric rear windows?*

|Talladega900||What a shame, D. You had no choice but to walk.|
