  1. In reply to mercer09, Western Union is great if you are receiving funds; not if you are sending them.
  2. It has front suicide doors. That makes it a 1935 Model 120. If it has a molded, extended trunk, then it is correctly classified as a Touring Sedan. I realize this is an old ad, but I couldn't help myself.
  3. I'm so glad y'all are getting wise to this criminal!
  4. Yes, this is the same jerryz/ christophertyler818@gmail.com, that tried to sell a car to me that doesn't belong to him. Nice diligence on your part, sagefinds. We have to weed out these thieves.
  5. I know I'm not the only one being contacted by these crooks. Members need to report whoever is trying to rip them off. The more their names/E-Mail addresses are exposed, the better the chances are that we won't get scammed.
  6. I'm advertising for a WTB 1937 Packard 120 six wheeler nose, and I get a response from a guy whose E-Mail address is christophertyler@gmail.com. who supposedly lives in Florida. He is a "Newbie" on the A.A.C.A. site using the name jerryz. He says that he has what I want, in excellent condition, for $35,000, and that I should send the money thru an "account wire transfer", such as Western Union, and he wants my address. The price includes shipping. He sends a picture to me, below, of a 1937 Packard 120, without side mounts, which is actually being brokered by a company named Daniel Schmitt & Co., in St. Louis, Mo., for $37,500. The picture is right from a Hemmings ad. The car, obviously, doesn't belong to him. I don't know about his reading comprehension skills. I don't want a complete car, unless it's significantly less than $35,000. I called him out on it and told him that I knew who really owned the car. I asked him to explain himself, and I haven't heard back from him. There seems to be no shortage of scammers. I also told him that if I am wrong about him, I would be happy to apologize. I don't think that's going to happen. Just an F.Y.I.
  7. The two photos of the side-mounted Packard are of a '37 Model 120. Look at the hub cap in the photo just showing the driver side of the front end. It says PACKARD ONE TWENTY.
  8. Hi Flackmaster, I am looking for a complete front end off a car that has either had an interior fire, a tree fell on it, or has had a rear end collision to the point where the only usable piece is the front end. There has to be one out there. I don't want to pay piece meal. The cost, I believe, would be prohibitive. I received your E-Mail. It's good to know you're out there. Thanks for responding.
  9. There will always be people who possess no sense of integrity, who are looking for a fast buck without working for it, no matter what the cost to the trusting victim. We all need to exercise extreme diligence when dealing with these vermin. "Caveat Emptor"!!!!!!!!!!!
  10. Recently I had a response to my WTB ad for a 1937 Packard 120 six wheel nose. Lion455 said he knew a man, Jonathan Sonnhalter, jrsonn365@gmail.com, who had what I was looking for, and gave me his E-Mail address. I sent an E-Mail right away to Mr. Sonnhalter, who lives, supposedly, in Ohio, and he responded awhile later with, yes, I have a 1937 Packard 120 with side-mounts, in excellent condition, which I haven't touched in 40 years. I am the original owner, and look over the two pictures I sent and tell me what you think of the nose. How old is this man to be the original owner of an 83 year old car? The two pictures turned out to be a 1947 Delahaye, which slept in an underground Manhatten, NY garage for 40 years. He had the 40 years right, but obviously doesn't know a Packard from a Delahaye. I Googled the two pictures and discovered that the Delahaye was bought by a couple of guys from New Zealand, where the car is presently being restored. These two pictures were taken directly from the New Zealanders website. No money was discussed, so no money changed hands. I would have taken a road trip to Ohio to see the Packard before plunking down any cash. When I sent another E-Mail to Mr. Sonnhalter asking for an explanation of our previous E-Mail exchanges, he didn't respond. No surprise there. Just thought you might like to know.
  11. wanted: 1937 Packard 120 six wheel nose, complete.
