Listing for a friend of mine who is liquidating his collection! All questions should be directed to Jaime at Colochito42@yahoo.com.
I have seen all of these vehicles and driven most of them - however I am not a car dealer and cannot take any responsibility if i make any mistakes in these listings - I'm just trying to help out a computer-illiterate friend, and find some good trucks a nice home!

ok that confuses me (scammer on craigslist part)

I actually dont know how that gets done but whatever.

Its legit, and im just trying to help a friend out. IF you are actually interested and a potential buyer then shoot Jaime a email or call him at his workshop on 818-991-8671. Just tell him Ben from Man-A-Fre sent you :)

Hell if you want a picture of me in front of one of the vehicles with a shiny bit of cardboard with a message like " HI Prat" than you'll have to wait till monday.

I've also posted it on a few other sites, the more people that know the better. And seriously, who would buy a vehicle with out having it inspected ot know it is what it is and that it actually exists?

Ben,

I'm not saying it isn't legit. I am saying there was a guy using pictures of that HJ45 on craigslist and ebay to fish for marks. If this is the legitimate owner, then that's great. He's getting an email from me as we speak. :cheers:

Lots of people buy vehicles sight unseen on ebay, for some reason. I've learned my lesson: I'll never buy a truck without seeing it in person and sleeping on it for at least a night.

Cheers,
prat

Prat - thanks for letting me know - It threw me off as I had just posted a cut copy of this add on Craigslist a few minutes before your reply, and couldnt figure out how i had been posted a scammer in that short time - just coincidence i think.

About the buying a car unseen thing, I'd never even consider it. Back before we moved to the US if i'd even considered buying an out of state vehicle I would find a knowledgebale person in its homestate and slip them a bit of $$ to check it out for me to make sure it exists - I know there is to many shady characters on the net rying to make a quick buck on someone who still has good faith in the cruiser kind.

Let me know if Jaime doesnt reply to your email he has been fairly busy - I can be contacted ben@man-a-fre.com if he doesnt and i'll pass the message along.
