  1. Its my birthday so i spent it cruising the automobiles shown in pics i took today ! & sh*t just got real ! 57 Buick convertible reached 57000 miles .. Best Birthday ever !!
  2. Thankyou John , a happy new year to you and aaca members ..I do look forward to a new year & here attached is my Forward Look plymouth 1958 i recently imported from the Netherlands, along with 57 buick convertible from CA.. if you look at both cars Pictured you can see why in 1957 chrysler was called the forward look..came out streamlined with sharp edges..
  3. Cheers everyone !! .. i was very interested to buy it for sure !! and its not easy to view a vehicle in person when you live on the other side of the world.. over the past 25 years i have imported 7-9 vehicles ..each one was as described & everything i was expecting due to obtaining many photos of all aspects of the vehicle...and asking hundreds of questions and overall doing your investigations & homework !! If its a great deal & if seller was iffy for whatever reason ..i would hire an appraiser who would overlook the vehicle and send over 100 photos.. Ive personally also done over 1000 ebay transactions with people in USA & maybe just 2 out of the 1000 was not so good .... you nice people are honest and sincere over there !! Love your strong integrity and honesty !!!! Soon as i do a transaction with someone from either my own country (Australia) or Canada 1 in 3 are out to try & burn me !!! ...from my experience over many years unfortunately that is the honest truth !!! So i havent spent much money in these countries .. the only thing i dont buy from the USA are my groceries..
  4. Well thats a Pretty good purchase price at auction for a convertible with over $100k invested in the restoration.. c'mon if you list a car for sale & theres a buyer with hand up to purchase.. why procrastinate ? If seller is in 2 minds to sell ..simple ,, dont advertise it until you a sure you want to sell ... a request for a pic of a simple piece of paper showing current date stuck on the car for sale is not too much to ask for ensure its a secured bonafide sale.. also the craigslist listing shows only a link you can only reply to .. also the supposed work email address offered comes up with nothing on google ..hello !! Alarm bells are ringing to the tune of ScamoScoliosis !!
