  1. Wow, lots of great work and exciting developments...thanks for sharing!
  2. Wow, Moe! Nice to see your name pop up after all these years. I recall that you were a participant in either one or both of my group buys (billet stub axles and carbon fiber hoods/trunk lids) back in the day. I can 100% vouch for the quality of the Massive S14 oil pan, having participated in the last group buy. The part is beautiful and works perfectly. The group buy was managed by Lee in an efficient & professional manner. A few pics of mine:
  3. Very sweet car...and a great story with excellent pictures. Bravo!! Thank you for sharing, the car looks beautiful. COOP PS: Extra points for “pecuniary”
  4. Hi Ryan...Nice going, cool of you to help her out. Seems like a nice kid! coop
  5. I DM’d you! Please call or email me. If your trans is problem-free in good working order, it should work! Thanks, Coop [email protected] 415 994-5061
  6. Randy Nonnenberg (the founder) sold Bring a Trailer to Hearst Communications last month. Apparently, he and his complete staff will continue working there and nothing will change as far as daily operations go...but they always say that lol.
  7. Thank you kindly! It’s still so nice, it’s just not Coop’s anymore lol. It’s now in one of Europe’s sweetest BMW collections, but I’m told it gets driven, which makes me feel a bit better...although I do sometimes weep...
  8. Hi all...I just swapped out my OEM tii fuel tank for a custom fuel cell and was going to offer it up on the Classifieds or maybe just bring it to Brisbane in Sept. It’s in excellent condition and includes the complete sending unit. I also don't need the expansion tank under the car, as the new cell includes that function as well. I have no idea what to list it all for. I’d like to give someone a decent deal as opposed to asking top dollar. Any guidance? The comps produced by my search weren’t very helpful as the tanks all looked super rough. Thanks in advance!
  9. Yeah, I’m good. Hope everything works out.
  10. lol, point taken, go for it! You probably could have outlined his adversarial douchebaggery a little more clearly in your initial post as I missed it (or maybe I’m a tad daft)... ...and I don’t understand your last comment (“strange package from back East,” etc), your unique brand of humor often goes over my head.
  11. I missed any Initial mention that he “filed the PayPal claim as a non-delivered item,” but, if accurate (I saw it in Conkitchen’s subsequent post) it’s a valid point and I’d probably go into “F-Him” mode too in that instance. I originally interpreted that the PP claim was simply to get his deposit refunded.
  12. I’d refund his full deposit, painful though that might be. It’s called “taking the high road and being the better man.” I look at deposits as an effective selling tactic to gain mental commitment and a higher probability that a sale will ultimately occur, more so than an ironclad guarantee of a done deal. At the end of the day, sure, he wasted a little of your time and inconvenienced you to a minor degree, but he didn’t really cost you anything financially in concrete terms (to convince yourself otherwise is shaky moral justification). I’ve returned many thousands of dollars in customer deposits; it was inevitably wince-worthy, but deep down always felt like the right thing to do. I felt better by telling myself it actually never was a sale so I didn’t lose anything...but may have gained a future referral or a good word on the street. You asked, that’s just my opinion, which you can of course discard in favor of everyone else’s telling you to pocket the cash.
