The boy is fishing for suckers - The fact that you may know what he's up
to doesn't bother his type in the least. He onlyy has to sell it to one
person- it's just not going to be you - Lon

>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."
>"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!
