[DML] Re: #4004 on ebay



hi

i also saw these two on ebay.

just a couple of things, originally the doors did not hold up (can 
see the pole!).

if a car was excellent before the flood, why didn't the owner change 
the struts for a few dollars.
on the latest advert, you can see some banjo bolts on the engine, so 
clearly its been worked on-not just flushed!!.

for flood damage, why would you flush the transmission?? isn't it a 
sealed unit, otherwise oil would leak under pressure?.

surely engine would need to be pulled-perhaps the current owner 
thought clean the plugs etc and would start!!!.

is not winding car mileages back/misrepresentation illegal in the US?
as in the UK.....but not prosecuted very often.

Regards

Steve
