    That really blows. Maybe you can have a good friend of yours or family member take it for you, then after the divorce is over you can get it back.......

    "14 pages... give me cliffs."

    So this guy purchased Funkboy's car, using HPF for the PPI and repair, and it appears that the car was pretty trashed. Funk claimed that the car was "mint" but they immediately found numerous mechanical and cosmetic issues with the car. Funk covered the cost of repairs for many of the issues that they found, and lowered the price a little to cover anything minor that they might have missed. The buyer paid and took possession of the car. Funk must have done a lot of shoddy repairs or mods and lots of additional problems surfaced immediately after receiving the car from HPF. They agree that the car was running decent when it left HPF, but it started falling apart soon after that.

    The situation is still being worked on and the car is still not driveable. It appears that the car will have to be shipped back to HPF before it is running properly.

    The buyer obviously took a "leap of faith" and this is a good example of that can happen when you assume that risk. I am sure that he believed that the discount he received would protect him from anything that HPF might miss, but it was obviously not enough for the reality that he is dealing with.

    ^^ Excellent break down!

    I was considering buying a used stage 2 for a pro-efi monster down the road. Not after this sitiuation.

    This man from B.C. that purchased Funky's car has the patience of a lamb or he is just embarrassed he was fooled and hoodwinked.

    I believe the man is just under $10 k in repairs SINCE he purchased the car. Not to mention the car has not been driveable and he had to purchase another car as he was borrowing his wife's trying to get the stage 2.5 running for the past month plus.

    I find it sad that an "enthusiast" sold their car to another "enthusiast" under the guise that it was "mint" and ran great. The OP could have been up front about the running issues and the body damage and still made good money.

    What goes around comes around folks! Pay it forward.

    Mike

    How in the world could the car have been in that poor of shape?

    I'm disappointed in Funkboy.

    Based on everything that I read, I can see some issues on both sides. The main issues are that Funk misrepresented the condition of the car and made it difficult for the Buyer to do much more than a visual inspection since the vehicle was not registered or insured and he would not allow it to be driven. Funk covered many of the items that were discovered with visual inspection, and starting of the engine, but they were not able to actually drive the car until after it was paid for. At that point, he stopped responding, even though he had stated that he would continue to assist with anything that came up from the test drive. The weak clutch was the first of the issues that surfaced.

    The Buyer has owned up to his contributions: if you feel that $40,000 is a lot of money, you cannot delegate all of your due diligence to others and then complain that they were not as meticulous as you would have been. If you cannot inspect the car yourself, you have to accept responsibility for failing to protect yourself.
