I still smell a rat. That car has been for sale, and in an ebay scam, in the past.

In 2008 I had some PM with on member from this board about this car:


"I saw the car about 1 month ago on ebay on the one hand from the guy who sold it now, and on the other hand by a guy from Texas. The seller from TX wanted about 11K USD.
Pics were the same (with the dog, I think Nutella is its name), and also the same disciption of the car.
Maybe he gave the car to http://resurrectionrods.com/ to repair / paint and did not pay, so they now sell the car to get their money.

I am searching - maybe I will find the old ebay link.

kind regards
Oliver

Thanks,"

Must be the 10th time these pictures has been used on eBay for the last 2 years. Seller is not responding to questions. Definitely another scam attempt.

Listing has been removed, but I just got an e-mail from the scammer: :whore:

I'm sorry for the late reply, i have some health problems. Here's a link with more pics:

The cougar is in very good condition and it looks great inside and outside, no damage or mechanical problems. It received a frame-off restoration. The title is clear and the car was never involved in an accident. My final price is $9800 - the buyer gets insured shipping and a 30 days free of charge return policy and inspection period. For safety reasons i will only deal through ebay. Let me know if you're still interested.

I guess his health problems are mental? Anyways, I just sent him a message asking for some additional information and how we could finalize the deal now the the car has been removed from eBay.... I am awaiting his answer :)

Yes, that is the Cougar I restored and had at Carlisle last summer in one of the indoor displays. And those pics are from the original listing I bought it from on ebay. You would think, after all of the attempts to run the scam with this car, they would move on to something else. Isn't the dog a dead giveaway?
