Posted 18 April 2005 - 10:49 PM
I posted it up on craigs list in Portland and with in 6hrs had 4 people interested in it and one of them is from Canada.
This person is going to pay me 1500.00 in a m/o I will remove 300.00 for what I'm selling the car for and the rest is to go to a shipping company to ship to Canada.
Doesn't this sound weird? Why would you pay 1100.00 to ship a 300.00 car to Canada. Or am I missing something, like gold under the dash board or something?
What do you guys think?

"This person is going to pay me 1500.00 in a m/o"
If by m/o you mean an international money order, then it's likely not a scam. Take the money order to any bank and exchange it for cash. On the other hand, if it's a cheque (yeah, I'm Canadian), then you may be up against a scam.
As for Subarus being rare up here, yeah, they're definitely not as common as down south. Combination of a number of things, not the least of which is a harsh climate, small population base, and limited model availability. I used to run a 1987 4wd Hatch out of Vancouver, BC - had to drag the local Volvo/Subaru dealer out to the lot to convince him that it was a D/R; he kept insisting that no such beast had ever been made. Should'a seen the look on his face! LOL!

let me guess! the richmond dealership!!!! they are a bunch of stupid idiots there... i asked them what the phone # to a local subaru repair place was... big old subaru sign ourside the local place... says certified suby repairs... and they said to me, "there isn't a place there..." and i was all, "I was just there!" and they were, "NO it doesn't exist..."

I would definitely be very weary of a scam...

Watch out for these guys I was so willing to sell to these guys... I feel like a dolt.
I want to sell my car and I would love to get what I asked for it but not ending up like that......

You KNOW it! LOL!! Was going there for parts originally (this is back in '98), but found that Aldergrove Wreckers were a far more knowlegeable source, and WAAAAAAAAYYY CHEAPER!!
Still have the hatch, though not on the road. Engine still works, too; can't seem to kill'em - sort of a Chucky thing... MWOOOO HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

Rare, I just bought a gl-10 turbo sedan for $250 !!! I don't think anytown in North America has more subes than Nelson BC. Saltspring doesn't even come close, alot of N.I.M.B.Y.'s tho.
Is that for the GF, or a DD until you fix the wagon?

been there, Bill Potts is his name if I remember it right. He had an LSD still on a care a while ago but he has since sold it. I think I'm getting a second gl-10 sedan with a blown bottom end for a couple hun. Might make one really solid 4wd turbo sedan. There's a fair # of sube up for sale right now up here on the north island.
Bill died a while back, his son Ed is running it now. Yes, lots of subes there, all kinds, even 2 gen 1 Brats in the far corner - great people to deal with.
