I saw this ad, and wondered if anybody from the area may know something about this. If he's for real I would help him out no problem. But, there are just so many scammers out there, you don't know.

Check it out

You notice he's got 0 feedback. So either he's scamming ,or he's not internet savy and someone talked him into it, because they thought it would help.

I've had two heart attacks and have 8 stents. I'm not the man I used to be when comes to hard work, but I make progress on my restoring my Chevelle everyday, while maintaining a full time job, family and home without any help from anyone but God. Unless he has some other complications that severely limit physical activity, I don't see what's stopping him.

if it really is his life time dream, he can borrow the money. If he was in need and asked for food, shelter or something he NEEDS, That would be different. Nobody NEEDS a classic car. It's a hobby, an extra, almost an extravagence. Give him the number for the 'Make a Wish Foundation'.

Thats been tried before and it never seems to work. Last year a guy had a 69 Z28 and was trying to pull the same sort of scheme to help finance his car too.

You know i have a car buying problem and want a REAL 70 ls6 convertible. I have good health and own my own shop but cant afford one. Anyone who wants to send me some cash toward my DREAM collection can access my paypal account at [email protected] and please be prompt.

Get real! People are starving and the economy is going to bottom out very soon and this guy wants us to save his ass! Truth be told he has a DRUG problem and needs new needles. Someone should email this guy and see if he will accept a dollar donation. I bet he begs for more than that.

I dont see many old retired people posting ads on ebay and using "lol" in any sentences...
Ah, you beat me to that point! My dad's been using computers about as long as I have and I still have to explain what "lol" means periodically.

No joke, I once saw on ebay a guy had listed a dead fly he found in his 66 chevelle, and was selling it to raise money to restore the car! It brought 22.00!!! Just goes to show you can sell anything on Ebay. The beer tabs I found under my rear seat outta fetch good money don't ya think! Aluminum prices are going up!

I have a mostly eaten chocolate chip cookie.......but one of the chocolate chips bears an uncanny resemblance to Jesus. It's in the fridge. Saved it one day at lunch while listening to a news story about some kids eBaying a cornflake in the shape of the state of Illinois.

Think it'll help finance my convertible?
