Yeah.

I'm retired and this is a great hobby for me.

I'm just a curmudgeon.

Yeah, worthy of 25% of the photos, but not interested in a trade but willing to add boot if necessary...

I thought about contacting him, but.. probably not. I did find out that there's a local craiglist pro user around here that likes to call people out on their ads. I had posted an ad for a couple of spare tires I have laying around and had listed the wrong bolt hole pattern on one of them. he sent me an email with the correct pattern. They weren't sarcastic or nasty and the Google confirmed it so I sent him a Thank You and edited my ad.

If that's an FE engine in that dump truck then I want the transmission... Punch that 390 in my shop out to a 410 an put it in my truck..

there's been a lot of shady ads lately. Late model, low mileage vehicles for dirt cheap. No answer if you call, text or email them.

Saw this ad today:
https://wichitafalls.craigslist.org/cto/6099498288.html

Here's the pic that was with it... for posterity.

Also saw an ad for an 01 Honda Pilot (LIKE NEW TIRES) $1750
Pic shows the Pilot in a shop with a flat tire.

1994 Ford Ranger !excellent shape) $1750
Ranger is in same shop with grill knocked out and rattle can flat black paint job.
