Thanks to Metdeath, I'm going to look at a black, 5sp, GT convertible today. I already have a round fog (jdm tight, yo) alltrac bumper and hood in black already in the basement! I hope my alltrac brakes bolt up too. I need another toy like a hole in the head, but it's close to home and I've been looking for a black 5speed vert. Could be going topless! w00t!

A 3SGTE swap in this car will be sweet!

Sweet, Good luck. What plans for it? Stock? Swapped? (If you actually get it of course)

that is my old car, and AO took those pics, haha, can't believe you found this thread... your welcome for the call earlier. trying to figure out what procedures to take so we can get this taken care of

I would lean to his statement of calling it his 'old' car to mean that it has indeed sold. Otherwise he would state 'that is my car.'

Bongs is SOLD. And if this interacts with you selling the 'Trac, GTFO. Otherwise hope its a good deal.

Sorry, bugs. I can't go back!

I want black because my ATA Alltrac hood and bumper in my basement is already shiny black. Plus, how cool would it be to have two black/gray 5th gen's in the garage?

I saw bong's car a while back. It's nicely done, but not to my taste. Short of the eventual swap and alltrac parts I plan to keep it OEM in appearance. I like the clean look. As a bonus this car is 45 minutes from my house and I should be able to pick it up for less than $1500.

Well, We had tentative plans to meet today around lunch. I drove downtown and never heard from the guy. Not even a phone call to cancel. I'm convinced all craigslist people are flakes.

I hate bad business people. Even a simple phone call is ok stating why you cant make it.

Did you by chance call him while you were waiting?

Ah shit man... at least it wasn't another 90 minute trip, one way.

True.

And no, I didn't call. I'm done calling. I've been polite and patient and made it clear I have cash. I'm not going to beg him to sell me the car. Some people just have no sense of common courtesy.

I probably wouldnt have called him either because it was on his plate to call you. he has something to sell not you.

I only asked because if you had called and he didnt answer then that would have been even more messed up.
