I sent him the following:
I was going to ask a question about this but then I read you response to a  
simple question asked of you by another ebayer. What the heck is your problem 
my  man? You need therapy! Badly!

Thanks  for the tip, I will send him several emails asking him the  serial

Hopefully many people from the list will also send  them to him asking
him until he posts the info.....

I just sent him  my question....

ZERO bids due to lack of info, $800 is a lot of money  to spend on
something that you don't know what it is. The engine number is  visible,
in plain sight, if you look down between the top shroud and  the
alternator by the oil fill tube. No PHD required just the ability  to
read. I am in Chicago and interested, but need to know the engine  code
to determine the cam and crank gear retard for the  application.

Subject: <VV> A New E-bay  Low!

Hi Guys!

An interesting item has appeared on e-bay. It is  item #220006493504.
It's an "NOS" 140 engine that looks like a 66  California model with smog
control. The starting bid is $800. I was  interested and sent an e-mail
to the seller in Michigan politely asking for  the engine serial number,
even telling him where to find it. This is the  response I received:

"Please so not ask any questions! I DO NOT have  time to answer them!
(His caps). If you have any questions don't bid. After  you buy the
engine, you can find out anything you want to know  yourself."

My response:

"I was going to seriously bid on your  engine. Your curt and unhelpful
response has convinced me to not deal with  you. THANK YOU." (My caps).

I have been buying and selling on e-bay for  five years and have more
than 700 positive feedbacks (zero negative). I  have never had a response
such as this. I don't know what this guy is  thinking but I hope he gets
hundreds of e-mails asking for the serial  number, thereby wasting his
incredibly valuable time!
