if people still fall for these scams, they deserve to lose their money.

car is priced at $12,500
very little time left before it sees the inside of a container.

Down to the nitty gritty....I'll be surprised if it doesn't sell now.

Just so you know, someone has taken your ad and made another ad trying to scam:

Do you know if your car is 50 state legal? I'm in California and registering an out of state car can be a real hassle. especially if it's a 49 state car.
This is from the cali DMV: If you acquire a 49-State vehicle (manufactured for all states except California) from another state or country, you may not be able to register your vehicle in California.)

shipping is your responsibility. I will help, obviously.
it's funny to see people in Cali post about legality, when Cali is the capital of tuner cars. How do they get them registered? Ask them

Cali has CARB and smog and noise regulations man, so they have good reason to be concerned. Last thing they would want is to buy this dope ride and then find out they have a track only ride.

You can register anything in Cali, but if you're asking about how to do it on an internet forum you're not going to be very successful.

I love this car so much. I really wish that I would have known about this forum before I bought mine.

get this...

i get 2 guys, both "very interested"...
one says he wants to come from the west coast to see it, calls me a dozen times in 2 days for every little detail, the usual "let me know if the other guy wants it, because i want it, consider it sold, it's a done deal..." the usual stuff you'll hear.

Never heard from him again.

The other guy, paints himself as a nice guy, honest, semi-retired great guy, pats himself on the back by saying "once i say something, i never go back on my word", calls me a half dozen times in the course of 24 hours, tells me "it's a done deal, tell the other guy it's gone, sold, tomorrow you'll have the money in your bank acct" yada yada yada...

I ask if he's sure, so i know what to do..."yup, DONE DEAL, I don't go back on my word"

After two days of not calling, no emails...after I call my ins. company and tell them after such and such a date, cancel my insurance... guy never bothers to call or say nothing again.

I text, call, email him 2 days in a row, he texts me back saying "ah, sorry, found one local, so i'm not buying yours".


So...i know you get a bunch of tire kickers and talkers and dreamers when you sell a car, but I've gotten nothing BUT these people, who I guess have no problem lying and making **** up as they go, just to satisfy themselves probably, i have no idea why people behave this way, honestly.

If you can't buy it, if you don't have the money if you don't want to travel a distance, if you know you have no word, why lie? Why bother someone day after day after day...make him cancel his ins. make him run around like a chicken without a head trying to find a shipping company, put him through all this work, then never bother to say "hey dude, sorry but i can't come, or sorry but i'm a broke *** and just dreaming"...

People are liars.
I knew that already, but trying to sell this car just confirmed it solid.
No matter how educated and nice they sound over the phone, they are liars.

So i hope to sell this to a person who deserves it also.
I wish i didn't have to sell it, i've been driving it around past couple days and it puts a smile on everyone's face who goes for a ride...heads turn everywhere i go, even though it's just a Miata.

We shall see.

That sucks man.

I hate when people pull that **** with me when I'm trying to make a sale. Usually if its in person I can get a feel for what kind of person they are right off the bat, and I can decide how much time/effort I'm going to give them. But over the phone or just through the internet is a totally different story. People take advantage of the no face to face interaction.

This car is amazing and if there was a way I could, I would. Hopefully someone that deserves this car ends up with it. Good luck man!

if people tell you it's a done deal, make them give you a nonrefundable deposit of moderate size. at least after a few of them you'll have some cash for the hassle.
