Default what an idiot!!

Am I wrong for calling this person an idiot for selling junk for so much? http://clubroadster.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=21974

I'd like a HT, and no window is not a problem (I'd do the lexan thing). But his price is way out of hand, considering the cost of a new glass window and the condition of the paint. Maybe 650 shipped?

Bought both of mine for $450 each. One through a friend of a friend, one on Craigslist. First one was pretty nice, sold it for $850. I could have gotten another hundred, but wanted to move it quick. The second one is ugly as sin and will be rattle canned for track days.

Well, if either of you find a HT for a decent price that someone can ship, I'll be all over it.

Finding one for less than a grand around here is impossible. Whenever I do find one for less, it's a 6 hour drive away, and the seller won't ship.

That would be a nice score in the $3-400 range... assuming you're looking for one w/o a rear window.

I'm waiting for something like that to come up locally.

Yeah, but unless you're bringing me a HT, it doesn't count.
