    That was quick. Pulled the Marauder from the market. Is it just completely impossible to find reasonable people to deal with?

    I've never understood why people want to bargain down without even seeing the car first. Tell me the tires are thin, knock the amount of rock chips, etc... don't just say; "Will ya knock 30% off your asking price?".

    Got one MM.net member harassing the **** out of me right now 'cause I didn't give him the car. Inbox is filling up. WTF! Just glad that fool didn't end up with it.

    Unfortunately now the people that are on the market to buy the Marauders. don't have much money in their pockets! Or they expect a showroom Marauder for $4,000. Lol I went through this when I sold mine.

    I couldn't figure this guy out. He wanted under carriage pics. Great! I drove it to town, put it up on the hoist and got 'em. Then he wanted a mechanic inspection because he was 'fraid of an expensive repair bill in the first year. Fair enough.

    He then asked what other offers I'd gotten on it. When I gave him a laughably low lowball I'd received he added 25% to that.

    His plan was to have a truck drive up from Illinois and have that guy haul it back to Illinois....sight unseen.

    I don't know who the hell buys a 15 year old Marauder sight unseen. Red flags went up. He's just 5.5 hours from my house. Why wouldn't he want a look at it before buying it? The whole thing sounded fishy.... as if I'd be left trying to cash a bad check while his buddies hauled my car away, and so I told him I had to think about it. He then went off the handle about how what a great offer he made and how fast it would be gone.

    I let him know exactly what I thought him, his plan to come get my car and his attitude.

    Within minutes(!) his follow-up e-mail included a strong hint at a legal matter from my past. Apparently he'd been doing some snooping on me and it felt to me as if he was gonna try and extort/black mail some money off the price.

    Yes, seriously. He'd done a background check on me and threw that in my face when I didn't accept his offer! I'm not sure if I'm going to refer this for prosecution or not. Since this crossed state lines there could be Federal charges involved too. I still have the e-mail chain and it sure doesn't make him look very good.

    I've been through similar things in the past. That guy got sued and currently owes me a pile of money.

    I'm not going to name the guy. I suggest this guy tread very, very lightly. He is on thin ice. These days I've got the means to defend myself.


    Some people will do anything for a Marauder. Lol. Never thought someone would pull a stunt like this though.

    Thumbs up McGard Security Lug Set

    FB blocked the image even though it was only 47KB. FB accepted the link well enough. Imgur won't accept the image either - some sort of copyright code? Finally ordered a set today through CarID.

    https://shop.mcgard.com/products/aut...ouch?sku=84550

    Update: Cancelled order with CarID and re-placed order with Amazon - saved $22 and get it tomorrow. Thanks for hot tip from long time board member Zack.

    Oh, yeah. Many. But, luckily, this is the way it is.

    Thumbs up COT

    Received a serviceable COT from a FB seller today; don't know if he's on here or not - in Chicagoland area. A neighbor experienced with refinishing automotive parts (and building cars from the ground up) is dropping by to take a look at it. $150 plus $25 shipping. Beginning to gather 'difficult to find parts' as spares.

    If anyone wants a supercharged Marauder with almost every upgrade from built trans to SW headers and exhaust to suspension work to every single system new or rebuilt, including cosmetic items, new refurbished OEM wheels, completely babied, WAY, WAY too much to list, first place show winner, 151k miles would pass for 51k miles, for $20k FIRM, no BS, send me a PM. The car runs perfect and is a beast. You get what you pay for. I will send you a list of all the **** I've done to it. It's endless.
