the seller recommended it
as the seller had the car serviced there for the last couple of times.
I had my father in law go to the mechanic and he isa rather large and he claims a reputable mechanic.
He has promised to take care of the mechanical issue as I am actual leaving for LA today.
I have not mentioned his name here as I believe he will come through for me.
Staytuned for an update when I return on monday after having meet with the mechanic myself face to face.
I still believe we can get the PO on fraud with regard to ownership.
Thanks for your advise.
One thing: I would surely like to know where this replacement engine came from? How do I figure that out now that the PO is totally reluctant to give any real info.
