ItzaMe,

Good luck to you. Really. You will need it given where you are headed with the p-car "bargain" finds of yours over the last few years, if I recall correctly.

Listen to Matt. Get his car.

There is no reason for chasing bargain basement prices 911s. 90% of these ads are scams and the other 10% are sold within minutes to dealers.

Financially you are way better off setting you budget to $30k and vetting cars/owners properly without the stress of rushing to pick up a $20k bargain beater. $30k gets you a good 76-83 911 or 912.

And all 911s will need work so you always have a project whether it's a $20k car or a $50k car.

The car I had was a 912 Widebody wit ha 2.2 from a 911 in it but yes I'm looking for a 911 but this was a very potential car that I'd like to just get running and drive as-is and worry about cosmetics later.

ANYWAY DUDES A SCAMMER. Straight POS...

Talked to him on the phone, told him to send me pic of his L's

Blah blah blah turns out the sh#thead got some pics off Beverly Hills Porsche club off a '65 911 front tub and after google searching all his images he sent finally got a match..

One of the pictures he sent me was tons of receipts and one has a waster mark from a shop and he said he "took those pics two days ago no editing or anything"

Whats a dumb@ss like going way out of his way to scam and the easiest part he messes up..

Go thorough all the cars I receomnded.

3-5 were daily runners no rust 18-20K steel widebody 911's some would calll sheepers but they were super nice and very ideal! No ugly kits just turbo steel widebody and nice cars that I missed out on.

There was a gold salvage car I really wanted that was being sold by a younger couple i SLEPT on it was such a deal oh well not going to think about those cars.

Those were cool and I'm looking for something similar since I can now get one and not have to worry about tuition payments.

Anyway, yeah this guy is an idiot. Said he is law enforcement and sent me a google image screenshot of 'him' hahaha

Now I told him I sent him a deposit and he wanted a photo so i sent the photo of the '65 911 tub and he was clueless.

Dudes a clown going to see how long I can keep this going

The least expensive 911 you will buy will be about 30,000. All these deals will be well over 30K when you have a driver you want to live with.

I know scams VERY well and have had fun with them my whole life dealing in car business.

Even after the super terribly cropped pics, terrible quality, i still was giving him a chance.

Told him to call me and he did, this was the first big mistake.

- I asked for his name at the end of the call "What was your name again?"
- He stuttered and almost said a name starting with an Ahh sound then hurry and switched the subject asking what my name is very quickly and asking If I was the same person who called before and Im like ummm My name is mario and nope this is first time...
- Oh okay, my name is jeremy......


hahah IDIOT


Whoever is interested I can post all the pics he sent me along with this one he sent claiming to be him.

"his" pics below

I wouldn't waste my time or money, especially if the seller seems sketchy. I think you'd be heading down a very long and expensive road, and would blow your budget just on body work.

I love 912's but they're not 911's.

(Found the other thread) Opinion on the value of a '66 912
Most of them are rusted, but in AZ I have seen a lot of original batt. tray nice no rust SWB 911/912's and I have bought a few and they look like that in pictures.
But you have to see them in person to really know what you are getting.
I am really apprehensive of 'Deals' on CL and the internet in general.

Yup you got that right.

The more I work the more my 911 budget will grow.

Looks like I might as well slip into the bottom barrel 930 game next... lol jk
