Default I narrowly missed disaster today v.crime

I bought up a '99 swap car a few months ago, through an acquaintance but never paid him because he wanted the front clip, and the body parts (he held the car as a favor because I brokered a deal between he and my father for a 68 Yenko Camaro). I told him that I couldn't get the car for a while, and he was cool with that.

I talked to him this weekend and the guy demanded that I come get the stuff. Suddenly however, he wants $300 more and won't take a check. I cross referenced the vin he gave me (for lsd checking) a few months ago with the police to find the car was stolen...lol.

Well, the police are going to meet him later today. I would have bought the parts up if the guy hadn't been such an ***, raised the price, and been a dick about everything.

I'm back to square 1...damn it!

I know its ------ry, but I wanted to think I was standing up for the miata crew lol.

If anything, its one less person to worry about stealing my car. On a sad note though, I'm stuck with a shitty old 150k mile 1.6 still.

i've seen spec miatas with more miles on their engine go multiple seasons without a rebuild without problems and finish well.

Its worth the money for piece of mind on a rebuild. I won't have fun if I don't think the car will make it home.
