I didn't say not to post your information about this car or thoughts on here but that calling the seller when not interested in buying it is a bit 'tedious'?
Did it actually sell before as they own damaged cars that are then sold through places like Copart & previously Bluecycle before that ceased trading?
On PH they have a 'Ringing kits - not on our watch' thread. When I used to buy MCN years ago people would advertise a frame for a motorcycle with a log book. I think the game was steal another motorcycle and give it the identity of the frame and log book being advertised.
I don't see how flagging up stuff that's been altered since it was bought from a salvage auction is much different.
......so 'caveat emptor', each man for themselves here may rankle a little.
Did you not read(understand) my previous post?
They actually sell their cars through the salvage sites, including Copart, so it might not have sold before & now they're selling it themselves....& stating that it's an insurance write off.
Are you now suggesting that someone would steal an original Cup & ring it with this one? Easier to fix this one than go to all that bother, they could steal a std red V6 GTV & turn it into a genuine Cup-a-Like!
certainly isn't one of my favourite sayings. The last 'gentleman
' who quoted that to me sold me my first V6 GTV which promptly broke it's crankshaft after I'd owned it for 6 miles!
It was a fun
6 miles though & it didn't stop me from buying plenty more V6s.
I blame the last owner not the design of the engine.
Caveat emptor I think means 'buyer beware
' but when buying a damaged car, IMO, it should be 'buyer be aware
