Good old eBay is on top of the situation...
At 8:00pm Central Time, the auction is still running, with 3 hours and 43 minutes left.

Leon has the high bid, though.

I wonder if he will give them positive feedback?

Yay! :eek: I suppose that the seller will be responsible for a big ebay sellers fee on a $5k sale as well.

I am glad Leon you got it back...but this could happen to anyone...I hope that the police will catch these guys and haul their butts off to jail....just be aware of your compeition cars and how and where you park them...you could be the next victim.

At a local Colorado vintage event a Wyomingite had his truck, trailer, and race vehicle stolen. He had even disabled the truck and had an alarm in it as well. The simply towed the truck and trailer away with another truck. I personally think that for some of the higher end rally cars, Lo-Jack would not be a bad investment. Maybe even just in the trailer so as not to add weight :)

>The winning bidder is going to be pissed!

I sent him a link to the Special Stage threads. I noticed that he also won the "fantastic original Las Vegas car" that was being sold by this guy. Long drive from Ohio for a piece of crap car; Hmmm.

*ss-kickin' comments make us all look foolish

All:

The discussion about *ss-whoopin' is misdirected and inappropriate.

Leon has posted a note saying that he's withholding most of the details pending the investigation so I'm not gonna share a lot of what I've learned, but there I some things I can tell you without compromising those leads.

The person with the car called me Tuesday and said he'd just heard through the grapevine that the Evo was stolen. The car didn't show up on the police hotsheets (for reasons I'm not going to address) so he was in the dark on the matter.

Once he learned the car was hot, he called me, as I'd mentioned, and offered "if it's yours, come and get it." (I assume he got my number from the Widget web site). I immediately put him in contact with Leon, then followed up with both parties. Note that he said "come and get it," not "bring your checkbook." As soon as learned the history, he wanted nothing to do with it, quit claim or otherwise.

I'm delighted that the car is back in Leon's custody, and am pleased to hear that he's spending the dough to get it fixed up again. It's a heckuva ride, almost as wicked cool as the VII that Leon's got for sale.

The reason for this post is to make it clear: the person with the car had no clue the car was stolen because it didn't show up on the police lists, and he was very cooperative as soon as he learned the details.

Please don't rant about misguided *ss-kicking. It just makes us all look foolish.
