I dunno, but damn that's a cheap price. an 02 GTS with 40k on it is worth at least 12k stock. I know aftermarket mods can lower a cars value but this car is very nicely done and there's a ton of expencive mods on it worth probably more than 5 grand. If I didn't already have a GTS I'd buy this car for 7500. Unless he maybe blew his motor with that double shot of nitrous he's got on it, but still a new GTS motor is only like 2k, so for 9500 you can have a custom wide body custom color custom dash and interior and kick ass stereo system. the only other idea I think it could be is to cheat Ebay outta some listing fees and he's really trying to sell it for more than 7500 and going to tell ebay that that's what he sold it for. since he's kinda sketchy in he wants you to contact him on his private email address he's got the bidding starting higher than he's selling it for and will withdraw your bid if you place one without talking to him first. he's also got 0 feedback.

I wouldn't buy it because it's already a show car. No fun with an "all-tricked-out-ride-that-mommy-bought."

INteresting that every single person who has bid on it, has a 0 rating. This is a scam from the bottom up. I sent him an email saying I might be interested. I asked how long he's had it, where he got it, & did he do all the work. I know the kid whose parents bought it for him, has had it probably less than a year.

It's probably legit. There must be 2 of these cars that look similar. because the guy in superstreet lives near philly. and this guy lives in Toronto. But i would still be carefull. That is really cheap. Sounds fishy.

Wow here's the reply I got back. Total scam.

Quote:

Hello,
First, I want you to know that I live in USA,but for the moment I'm in
England.Two mounths ago my cousin died in a tragic car accident.
My cousin family need money urgently and thatsware I sell this car so
cheap,becouse i want to help they.
The car is in excelent condition .It has a title clear wich you will
recive along with the car and two rows of keys.
The buy it now price is 7500$ .
Regarding the payment method i would like to use Square Trade like a 3rd
party for the deposit.Square Trade is a affiliated company of eBay.They (as
you can see on ebay site map) develop the program Safe Harbour -Fraud
Protection.I am a seal member and that's mean I am backed up for all my
auctions on ebay.I pay them fees for that!
The car is here in England and it is allready to Square Trade,they inspected and tested the car to
see if the description on eBay matches with the real condition.
Look how they work:
1.I will contact them , and I will send your shipping information.
2.They will send us mail forms (the forms will be from customer support
team) for you about payment deposit.
3.Those forms must be filled by every part of this deal(me and you)
with infos that they required.
4.We must submit the forms.
5.After you will inspect the car,Square Trade will send me the
payment infos and I shall pick up the money.
This means a 3rd party.
After all that will be done,the car will be shipped from Square Trade,and
will arrive to your place in max. 10 days.
You will receive a tracking # in the same day that the car will be
shipped.
I forgot to tell you that the shipping is free if you pay 7500$ for my car.
If you want to go on with this deal , mail me asap because I have another
interested buyer and I need to sell this car fast.
Best Regards!

This is def a scam and for multiple reasons. Pakistanis and Foreign people try this shit all the time and ill tell you why and how. They spam for ebay passwords meaning they send fake emails out which look like ebay is having trouble with your account and they need you to fill in some info such as soc #, address, credit card info, and password. They steal your account and begin to sell items. Since they may not have control over your email they will use a different one. They will accept the payment than book and there is NOTHING you can do. Absolutely nothing!. Its quite obvious to tell they are scamming and he has very poor english. Just check the link out.


" I cannot reach you if you contact me through "Ask Seller A Question"
because I have a problem with my email from ebay account and for this reason I will use another one so we can close this deal.

So contact me at this address [email:divaio123@yahoo.com"]divaio123@yahoo.com"[/email]

"If you place your bid until you contact me I will canceled your bid. Email me first to bid so you can have my aprove to buy this car!!!

Please respect my auction conditions!!!:

I think that car is on the cover of HCI as well. I'm pretty sure, because I bought it because there was a celica on the cover. I'm gonna check my magazine pile and see.
