Sometimes you find things on CL that make you just go WTF and figured I would share this one. Anyone seen any good ones lately?

Helps to copy it in since the links will eventually go bad....

"....have to many other projects to ,do..."

OMG, let's take up a collection to keep him AWAY from GMT360's, or else we'll see a horrible bondo-attached outhouse as a second story on one. :eek:

Good find. :wink:

There isn't enough beer in the world to get me to the stage where I ever thought this was something worth doing....let alone waking up to stone-cold reality..!!

A waste of 3 vehicles....

Last year, spotted an ad for two late model Yamaha 4 stroke snowmobiles and trailer for some ridiculously low price (less than the normal price for one sled). Knew it was a scam but decided to play :tongue:. Basically the usual "I'm out of the country at the moment but can ship to you for free". Funny thing was that he was going to ship a 10 foot wide trailer in an 8 foot wide container. Hmmmmm :undecided:. Finally asked if he was from Russia, Nigeria or Romania. Wound up being Nigeria. :rotfl:

This is a project i took on, I purchsed a 4 seater gem car. I was unhappy with the 3.5hp 25mph electric car. i looked on line to see if anyone else built one with a gas motor. I only found 5 out there. They were made with motorcycle engines. I wanted a automatic, and more hp than what is delievered from a bike engine. So I purchsed a 2001 Ford Explorer, removed the entire body and bolted the gem car on to it. Now I have a V6 210hp engine on less than 1500 pounds of chassis. I used the front end from a 1994 jeep Wrangler to enclose the engine, and a 2006 truck bed from a gmc canyan to mount the radiator and gas tank in. The project will be finished in a few weeks. Fenders/Damond Plate/Radio/ and all Lights still need to be installed. I will be leaving the island in a few months, and plan on selling my toy. I have not come up with a price yet and not finished it, just puting it up to see if there is any interest for this kind of toy here. If interested shoot me an email

Every once in a while when I'm going through one of my saved lists, I'll see something with a jacked up price change on it. One time I had a set of stepper motors, usually under $30, was listed for $125 :weird:. Had a set of plastic recovery traction tracks which were normally about $30, were listed at $150 :crazy:

Made this its own thread instead of hi-jacking one meant to help people post good deals.


However...the price of that is typical of what I see them sell for. I would never think of buying one for a 1/4 of that, but it is normal price.

They do that because they are out of stock and want to keep their ad spot. I called a seller about this recently and he said ebay rules kinda forces them into it.

This just happened:

(Read from bottom up..)

You changed it, but failed to change it properly.

Please copy and paste:

4.2 I6

(Not V6.)

Have a nice day! :smile:

What motor does this have? These trailblazers never came with a 3.5 v6. That's a chrysler made motor. These had either a 4.2 I6 or a 5.3 v8. Which is it?
