I did but will not post it for the public because I am not getting into it with him again. Pm me and I will tell you about itProtour-Camaro said:Has anyone else have a questionable experience? Nice guy before the purchase, had a problem with some panels he sent me months ago, offered to replace or refund, but now will never answer my emails or PMs to complete it.
iraqivet said:I wasn't the seller but the buyer of a 1980 Rally Sport Camaro. The seller was Rally Mike, a new member who lives near Cincinnati Ohio in West Chester. In the several e-mails we went back and forth and talking on the phone, we reach an agreement. In his conversations and e-mails he stated the body was solid with all GM steel panels. He also said he had several boxes of GM parts for the car. I thought I finally found a car with little rust issue. When my son and I went to pick it up, I looked it over, underneath the floor boards up front and the rear quarters and rear lower valance. The car was undercoated. We removed the items out of the driving compartment so I could repack all the parts. Yesterday I started going through the parts and removed the lose interior parts. I pulled up the rear seat cushions to find the whole area on both sides with rusted out areas and heavy surface rust. How I missed this when looking underneath is I was concentrating on other areas that rust. The whole time he assured me the car was 100% metal wise and all GM. The area rusted is terrible and of course they don't make a panel for the rear area. Some of the OEM parts still in their boxes were not for a 2nd generation at all. He said the dash pad and center console were like new and just need painted. The dash pad is trash with two slices through it and the center console has a gash. Not even good enough for a daily driver. I got conned believing this guy. Here is his post on the car in his words:
"I have an Blue with blue interior 80 RS T-Top car that has been stored on a concrete drive next to my house for the past 20 years. It is a project car all metal absolutely no rust. Some NOS parts. No engine or trans. My wife actually bought the car in 1983 we sold it in 1986 and I bought it back the same car in 1994 for her wedding anniversary. It's been 20 years now I haven't finished it so I found her another one that had 60k on it and bought that one for our 30th anniversary. I was thinking $1500 would take it. I live in Cincinnati Ohio."
On the way home he calls me wanting to buy the rear lower arm rest plastic which was new for his RS. I said no, I would need them. Well, I learned a lesson. Unless you are seeing the vehicle in person and inspect every corner, don't believe the seller unless other members have had good business with them. It appears he joined this site so he could dump the car. So, do I part this Camaro out also or does anyone believe the panels can be formed and this RS saved?
