  1. 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”
  2. Hi Ryan...Nice going, cool of you to help her out. Seems like a nice kid! coop
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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...
  6. 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!
  7. Yeah, I’m good. Hope everything works out.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Let’s have drinks...
  12. So that’s how you generate a 6-page thread...much like my wife can make me ask “what’s wrong?!” 6 times by repeatedly sighing deeply while pursing her lips (and, of course, refusing to tell me what I did).

    Moving right along

    Looks phenomenal! Thanks for sharing!
  14. YES!! Thank you so much for sharing those pics of Lawrence and his car. What a great guy and an absolutely immaculate car!
  15. Sigh, I so miss the 02 Fest East gatherings, so many great memories and great people. Hard to believe it’ll be 20 years this October since I relocated from NYC to SF. I just dug up the below picture with my buddy, Curtis King, and his son, some time in the late ‘90s. I remember there was this nice guy (Lawrence?) Who used to win all the prizes with his immaculate, “Caribbean Blue” (that’s what he called it anyways) square light car.
  16. Well...with all respect to mike472, given that he gushed that “This car is in such good original condition I almost cant believe it“ while describing a car with an auto-to-manual conversion, a Sahara-to-Inka color change and a non-oem reupholstered interior, you can’t find his knowledge level about the motor specs to be all that surprising! Just sayin’. Cool story though, what with the movie history and all...I wonder if he still has the car.

    Purchased a Neue Klasse!

    Nice work, keep it up! Thanks for sharing.
  19. Only if you feel that adding 500 lbs or so to your M-Powered 2002 constitutes an improvement.
  20. I hear ya @iinca but it’s silly to allow oneself to be antagonized even though the statement comes across a bit tough. Everyone has their opinions, some a bit strong and abrasive but hey, that’s ok, I can relate! I do get what he’s saying, even if I don’t completely agree. You could be a real, sour-grapes, have-not and make the same statement about 99% of Ferrari, Porsche, Lamborghini and McLaren owners “wasting” their cars by not taking them on the racetrack, instead of rolling slowly down chic boulevards blipping their throttles or parking them on concours lawns. I say just leave people be, it’s their car! My M2 2.5 gets driven only 2-3 times a month for an hour or so on windy back roads and it makes me so damn happy. I’ll never take it to the track because It’s super nice and I don’t want to beat on it to that degree...and mostly because I get a lot more pleasure & thrills tracking high-powered motorcycles. That’s just me...Cheers everyone and have a nice weekend!
