So I'm currently listing a bunch of 74' MGB parts on ebay and sold the motor for $256.01.
The guy is from Albany and said he wants to pick it up. We set up a date and he cancelled due to the weather. He calls me back and asked if he could pick it up Sunday, I told him sure no problem, but that I wouldn't be around on the weekend.
Sunday came and I called him, he's on the way. I call the bodyshop guy to let him know he's coming and he's like "wtf, there's a ice storm on the way". I have no idea why the guy picked Sunday's ice storm to travel in, but he did.
1:30 I get a call. (can barely make out what he's saying) "I bloke my truck!" what? "I bloke my truck!!!" what!? "I ROLLED MY TRUCK!!"
******* guy rolled his truck on 84! Jesus ****!
There's not much I can really do for him at this point. I'm at my gf's place and the highway is basically shut down. Long story short he gets a tow, goes to the hospital, ends up staying at a friends house in CT somewhere. Then shows up at the shop yesterday morning in a rented Pontiac Aztec.
We got the motor to just fit and all was well. He showed me pictures of the truck, it was completely totalled. He said something about strapping down the pallet and I told him no worries, the motor isn't going anywhere its chained to the pallet. He says "I'm not worried about it moving around while I drive, I'm worried about if I roll again".
He was a good guy and everything, but $256 motor
1999 Ford ranger.
Thought I would share the story.
