    **Buyers beware 1996 Corvette Convert by CHRISRT in NY**

    http://www.racingjunk.com/category/1...spd-vette.html

    Here is the Ad. Chris Contacted me to set up a trade for my Procharged Mustang...after NUMEROUS story changes, meeting and travel plans changed and cancelled, excuses as to why he was changing stories, he called last minute and asked me to meet in the middle of the night, driving 7hrs to meet him. Being a man of my word, I honor that, even though I was very skeptical. We agreed to meet in Columbus Ohio, he calls me and says he is too tired to drive further and asks me to drive an extra 50 miles his way while he slept. I drove all night, to get to him at 530am. He looks over my entire car, which is EXACTLY what described, I sent 10 pictures, and videos of the car, and he said the car was "too much of a race car". And he is going to pass. A man of no honor, wasted 15hrs of driving, $400 in gas, and "is going to pass". Just wanted everyone to becareful, as he obviously doesnt stand behind his word and has no problem or integrity wasting peoples time, and safety. Thanks RacingJunk for a place to deal with honest people.

    I HAVE ALSO TRAVELED HUNDREDS OF MILES AND HAD A GUY TURN DOWN THE TRADE AND I ALSO HAVE TURNED CARS DOWN. THIS IS WHY YOU GO TO LOOK. ONLY A FOOL WOULD TRADE IF HE IS NOT SATISFIED WITH THE CAR.
    IF YOU CAN'T TAKE THE TIME TO DO IT RITE, DON'T DO IT.

    Its sounds like he didnt like the car, if the role was reversed and you showed up and found something you didnt like on the Vette, would you have still traded? I too have driven hundreds of miles to trade or buy and come back empty handed. You take that chance every time you load up. Now I think he is over exagerating that the Mustang was a total POS, I read his ad and that car is for sure more of a drag car than a street car but far from being a POS and I dont see anywhere in the ad where it says its a street car??

    just my opinion, I could be wrong...

    Actually I didnt call him a scammer, I said Buyers beware. Funny you didnt say the car was junk when you were there Chris, you said it was too much of a race car? It IS in fact a licensed, and insured STREET CAR, we have driven quite a bit on the streets. The only thing that is missing from the interior is the back seat, and the car has Kirkey Pro street front seats instead of stock. EVERYTHING else is in there? So how is it a gutted race car????

    Lets talk about time slips and videos, I emailed AND text them to you, videos and timeslips of THIS CAR before we even made a deal. Opps another lie or excuse Chris, Stock car exhaust? The car has 3" Magnaflow stainless muffers and Xpipe because its a street car lol! Bald tires..Has a set of BFG drag radials with 6 passes on them from my NMRA car...oops another excuse. Regardless, im not going to defend the car, its ultra clean, everyone around here and other places know the car and I was upset you didnt even offer a valid reason to "Pass" after calling a friend and wasting alot of time. I am honestly thankful we didnt do the trade because I would have ended up with a riced out lt1 car with a strim on it. Its clean as heck yes, it better be for only have 12,000 miles on it. not much to brag there. Like I said, not upset other than the fact you have zero integrity and didnt even offer a valid excuse until you post on here. I had sent you 10 high resolution pictures of the car, and a cell phone video of it at the track, so there was and is nothing to hide.

    Sorry, one more thing to post, first you said its 13hrs, then it was 12.5 when actually looking at my phone records, you left your place at 6:30pm eastern time, and was parked asleep at 4:45????? Opps!!! That doesnt add up either Chris? Regardless, i am glad I have my "Junk" car just bothered you couldnt give me an excuse until on this forum.
