Yes. I always enjoy this guy.....

Heres some more times we've caught his shady rip off deals...his ebay name is similar but some auctions, hes no longer a registered user.....
Another Ebay car from our friend....
Our Ebay friend is at it again
Ebay 300TD Is this right?

Those posts I made, he has actually pulled the auction i.e. asked ebay to "no longer make the auction available" plus, he makes his bidders IDs private now, since last time we started emailing the bidders and telling them how jacked the cars were. LAter on, once he started getting bad feedback, he just kills his Ebay ID, and opens another one. How does he have 9 feedbacks at 100%? Easy. What he does is gets several ebay accounts at once with several email addressed. Then, he makes his feedback private. The easiest way to build feedback on ebay is to 'buy' it...don't believe me?

How about going here http://everythingelse.search.ebay.com/recipe_Other_W0QQsacatZ47103

buying a 'recipe' to cook something. 99 cents. You pay, they send, and do it 10, 100, 1000 times....all of a sudden you have a feedback rating of 100% wiht 1000 positive feedbacks. Who's going to know if your feedback is kept 'private'??


You can always see paint lines around the door handles etc. Very poor prep work. He goes to the trouble of installing every single car he sells with new or refurb wheels. THen misses details. Once, he listed a TD that had a big clock/no tach, then 3 pics down, the car magically grew a tach.

I'm just hoping that someone here doesn't get taken by this dude, thats why Im always watching this character.....

Oh yeah, notice the stick on wood overlay around the shifter.........

I wondered where the cars were coming from

So this guy is a dirtbag! I have seen several of his cars on eBay and wondered how he could find so many super clean old diesels. This goes to show how this slimeball is taking advantage of the longevity of our beloved diesels and the spiking price of petroleum to get top dollar for these cars by doing a quicky cosmetics job. This is a distinct negative of the web and eBay. I too bought a Mercedes wagon on eBay that was misrepresented, but not nearly so bad as this one. It just goes to show that one should always actually look and drive a car before purchasing.

I wouldn't be suprised

to find out there was shill bidding going on with that fellow. Probably why the user ID's are kept private. Ebay lets everyone screw the purchaser as much as possible. I hate Ebay....

Hey Redassag00,

I notice you are in Katy, TX - any way I could talk you into dropping by and taking a look at this '87 300TD up for auction in your town if it's not too far out of your way?

I've been searching for an '87 for a long time now, they are few and far between. This guy's single picture of the car is horrible(1st warning) and it shows no Carfax registration history prior to 05/22/1997 in Richmond, TX(no mileage). After that, it passed emmissions on 11/02/2003 in Richmond again with 175,100 miles. On 06/01/2004 it was registered to a new owner in Fulshear, TX , but no mileage recorded. Then it passed emmissions again on 01/04/2006 with 204,424 miles.

drivers door out of alignment...and...

has been repainted, see the differences in color and sheen inside door jams and outside. Drivers door hangs 1/4 in. too low probably needs hinges. Hate those chrom wheel arches, probably full of rust under them.

Nice car but what a sucker who buys it

The drivers side interior door release is busted. Look at that rim! (10 o'clock) it got pot holed or flattened some how. Really poor interior detailing! The rims are painted on the car, lug nuts, center cap, valve stem cap, caliper, included. Overspray on the tire, 2nd picture of the rims between 3 and 4 o'clock.

Stay on him redassag00.

I'm sorry to see that the 124 wagons ended in 1987 too. This guy is just full of knowledge.
