Thats what he says the car has, i have a picture of it but i don't know how to post it....

He replied today and told me that he wants to make the deal over the internet when i asked if i could have his phone number so i could talk to him...
the car looks extreamly nice..he says he has it for sale because he needs money badly and has no other choice...Do you guys think this is a con of some sort, a joke or?
And how would i do this deal safely if its true, what would i have to do to not get robbed or jibbed....

Thanks alot guys,

Ben

It would be a lot safer to purchase a bride from Bulgaria, than an auto. :doh:

If you get ripped off, how would you track down somebody who won't even provide his phone number? The only way I'd even consider this is if I were super-rich and $5800 + shipping meant NOTHING to me.
