    this is an email i got on my vega


    Okay, I think that's going to work for me. My fiancee Joe is the one who's paying for it. Our deal is that he'll pay for the car, if I take care of the monthly premiums. I know I can afford it, but he still wants to see at least a general idea of the cost before he buys it for me.
    I'm at work, and they allow internet usage to corporate web sites only. Could you do a big favor for me, and go to Auto Quotes and run a quote for me, so I have at least something to tell him? I'm local, with zero recent tickets or accidents. Just let me know what the monthly rate is and we'll come over once I get off work today, if that's alright with you.
    Thanks and look forward to meeting up!

    maybe if your lucky she will send you a check for it but realize that she over paid you. Then hopes you send her back the difference lol

    I wish we had the money to buy your Vega.

    I had a 1980 2+2 that I replaced the blown L4 with a SBC. Changed it from a four speed Saginaw to a TH350 (THEE easiest swap I've ever done! Even the backup lights hooked up to the stock Vega auto shifter!). Not one spot of rust on it either! A good friend who worked at the local Chevy dealer's parts counter gave me four 14" four lug rims that fit right on the Monza (rims were 7" and 8" wide with center caps!).

    Evil HATED that car because I made her steer it when I towed it home. So after all that work, I sold it and have regretted it every day since!

    My plan was to someday balk half the car, then front half the car with S&W parts and go drag racing with it.

    I got almost the exact same email too awhile ago. Obviously some loser gets a kickback for every sucker that goes to the site.

    Every time I post a car for sale on Craigs I get the same inquiry that you just received.

    Best advice I can give is be suspect of EVERY inquiry and try not to do much communication via email. Stick to via phone and when possible, in person.

    I am now asking people to "call if they are interested" right in the ad.
