Default Beware of Jimmy Sexton

Beware of Jimmy Sexton of Waterville ,Ohio. He likes to trade for your good parts for his junk, then tell people how bad he got screwed. He got me, and others, and will continue to screw people over. He has gone by the handle Jimmy6 and Johnny5, but his name is Jimmy Sexton.

OK, here's the deal, I traded him a 1994 S&W dragster with a 555 BBC that ran 7.70's for a 1964 Chevelle that had been back halved and a S-10 drag truck that needed to be finished.I thought I looked everything over good, but ,I had to take his word on allot of stuff. Well, the first thing that happened was, on the way home in the trailer, 2 of the 4 link bars came unscrewed, turns out they were too short, then I tried to change the rear wheels because the ones he had on it were too big and rubbed the wheel wells, they were the wrong bolt pattern. Then the 9 inch that came with the deal that was supposed to have a posi unit in it was not a posi, it came with what he said was a "Brand New" Optima battery, it won't even hold a charge, the Powerglide that came with it doesn't even have a tranz brake in it, it has the solenoid but no brake, the power steering pump was junk, the water pump was a short unit and to run an alternater and power steering unit you need a long style, on the S-10 most everything there is what he said, but , the Chevelle is where the deal was based on. Here is what he got :

1994 S&W Hardtail is certified for 7.50 and up until 2012.

555 BBC

This car has ran a best of 7.71 @ 171 MPH 1/4 mile with the old Carburetor.

The first time out with this car it ran 3 7.70's in a row. I told him that the valves were adjusted cold and as soon as he got some heat in it to re-adjust them, which he did not do , so he broke a push rod tip off.
I called him at least twice try to get this deal straightened out, and he said he would make it right and would call me back. He did not. So, this is why I am telling this, he is now saying that he got the bad end of this deal and that the engine is not what it was supposed to be. Well, anyone who knows me knows what that engine is, and if you read through the add you will see it too. All I want is for him to at least try to make part of this deal right.

Nice real nice.

The bad guys are replicating faster than we can deal with them it seems.
