Hey folks

Noticing a slightly alarming trend here on posts where folks are looking for a part

Unfortunately this trend is firmly established on Facebook

Just putting this out there for folks that may not see what’s going on with Facebook

The volume of scammers is absolutely insane. Some posts have ten scam responses to a oarts wanted request on Facebook.

The number one question is “where are you located?”  Well before saying they have the part or anything else.  Of course that is to determine the location of the OP so the scammer can say they are in a location that’s too far for collection

Just making folks aware in case so they can be vigilant

Ensure the person offering you the part is either A: a known entity or B: you can verify they exist and have the part they are offering.

Was a battle to get $49k for mine in 2002. Prices have risen nicely since

What an amazing story. Thanks for sharing

Good car to bring to the 60th Anniversary Mustang Celebration in April 5,6 & 7 2024.  It is at the Barbers Motorsports Track which is a very fun Track.  Registration is open and filling up fast at MCA.

Thank you, I am a boat ride away, I am in England.

I’ll have it next week

Saw it a few years back for a valuation and was able to buy it recently.

Based on a 390 GT and is a four speed with dual 4bbl carbs

Excited to drive this one

Cheers. Peter

I read again and again about these systems fixing issues. I spoke to a guy with a spectacular Mach one in PA last month. Said he just installed a Sniper system and it was great BUT!  There always seems to be a but. Something about the Tach causing issues with the system.

Hear the same type of thing again and again.

Guy had four wing cars. Two were moved off site. The other two were six feet in the air. Hard to imagine they would be washed off the lifts

Haven’t heard it in years but did hear it probably ten times as a lad

Years ago there was a guy in Hemmings, Alex Takasian (sp?) he would advertise all these parts from cars he was obviously taking apart to sell in bits

I bought a trunk lid and a front fender. We are talking easily 30 years ago so you can imagine how pissed I was to remember his name to this day

The items arrived in deplorable/unusuable condition. Packing couldn't be less secure. I can't imagine for the life of me how they could be so damaged. I reported it (was so obvious anyway) to the driver and a refund was give. TO ALEX

I finally found out his father worked at a law firm and called there. I got my refund.

I feel for you. I was more angry that original decades old rust free parts were destroyed by sheer laziness. I hope you get sorted

I have always wondered what happens with a salvage title car when it is brought to a no title state.  Many states don't issue titles to older cars NY being one.  It gets a transferable registration.  Does the brand follow?

Ah. That’s why so many cars have GA titles. Clean title state. Wipes the Brands

It is quite amazing how we are all being led down this garden path

The problems I have with even basic business interactions these days (read: banks) does not bode well for the future when there will be even fewer people to speak with (after an hour on hold) who can sort out the issues caused by their systems
