Re: Craigslist scam buyer?
I bought my '71 with a classic car loan. I had to pay a certain amount down in cash to the seller, which I did. The seller had to provide a receipt for that amount to the lender, who then provided a check for the rest. I'm not sure I ever actually saw the check. I wish I could remember the details better, but I know the lender required me to have one of those quickie car inspections done, basically to verify the car wasn't a pile of junk, started and went into gear, didn't smoke a ton, etc. The transaction went very smoothly.
'71 chevelle, 468, TH400, 12 bolt posi w/3.08's, drinks a lot of 87 octane.
