Bummer man, sorry your having a hard time of it. I have purchased a few items from CL ads. But I always try to deal locally. The internet is great, but ya gotta be real careful these days.

BTW my club member here in NJ is selling her '77 Chevy low top conversion van. 2 bays w/ a window slider. Old school paneling and carpet interior. 350/350. The van runs and drives well, but needs a ton of body work.

Well, I guess once you advertise something for sale you are not allowed to change your mind.

You do have every right to be pissed about the camera though.

Why does it have to be craigs list?
I bought 2 captain seats with bases from a Vanner on here.
One of the bases was welded in an up position so I can't use is. {to high}
He promised to ship me another one on the 26th of march. now he won't even answer my PMs.

You just have to be careful. When I went for the chop I thought it could be a bogus trip the whole way to Indiana with a trailer. Turned out Mike was a stand up guy. I asked for 2 certain pictures and I had them by that evening. Told me exactly like it was. But you always have to be leary anymore. What a crying shame! I am sorry about your luck but maybe for the better. Somthing AWSOME might show up in your back yard!! Think positive buddy!

So the saga continues...
I saw that they re-posted the CL ad, so I sent a text asking if the van was back up for sale again. I didnt hear back, so I figured I would try again after a few hours due to the time difference. Again, nothing. Then, at 6pm east coast time, the wife calls up and says, "yeah the van is for sale again, you have first dibs, go ahead and western union us the money." I said no way...last I was told, it wouldnt start, and then there was an engine fire that wasnt sorted out. I said I would have to ask the vanner from here I know to come take a look before I sent any money, and / or finalize on a price. She was fine with that but in a rush. Less than 24 hours later, she texts me again, to let me know that her husband decided to trade the van to square up on some money he owed...

So.... you're upset that you did not get a van that you said "no way" to and that had an engine fire and would not start?
