Post Amazing what the boobs at *********** are selling

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=591918518

If anyone bids on 10 minutes of 'talking to Dr. Porsche' (the president of this crappy junkyard), I am going to hunt them down and beat them silly. Fair warning.

WHAT THE HECK IS THIS ALL ABOUT?????????

ARE YOU KIDDING ME???!!!!!

What is this world (let alone ***********) coming to?

Next thing he'll be doing is "I will bless your car and cure all of its problems by touching it" for $2000.00.

I've had the "priviledge" of speaking to the alighty Mr. Hussey, and he was a complete a-hole. Wow. What is this world coming to???????

Well, the advertising that they use is that of '80 with women half naked and all with the same hair style.

Wow, this Hussey guy is really pathetic.

I have never used auto-atlanta before, but their catalog has outrageous prices for used items ($700 for a set of used pistons).

He claims to have produced a 400 page assembly manual which is really just a photocopy of the original porsche factory parts manual.

Did everyone notice that Wayne from Pelican is now the high bidder? Are you going to give him hell Wayne?

I only hope that Wayne has bid as a joke. He cannot possibly want to chat with King George.

What's wrong with using scantaly clad women with big hair do's to sell your products?

I frequent them all the time for that reason, and that reason alone.

I've seen many auctions by Auto-atlanta on ebay....Most of the products are suspect....Items bearing a Porsche crest or logo usually appear to be poor reproductions at best...I wouldn't buy anything from them...Cus

Thumbs down

Automobile Atlanta is one of the worst mail order parts places in the country. Yeah, they do 944/914 stuff, but they are out there for the money, not the love. Their service is a sad reflection of their attitude. If you don't believe me, take your chances and see for yourself.

Rollins that's what Wayne wants you to think! He's really after King George's Autographed 944 tech tips. Of course this is totally hush hush.
