    Sure, it's not a Cruiser; but I figured I'd post about the Ebay experience.

    This seller flat out AMAZED me. I emailed before bidding to make sure he'd work with me to ship, says "sure, I'll do what I can". Guys a dealer, Bob Magistri, from Magistri Motors in Windsor CT.

    Bob and his son personally DROVE the Tahoe to me. While he's here he buys an '05 Mustang GT that was SWEET to drive home.


    Point of the post, I've dealt with SCUM, I've dealt with LIARS, jack offs and a few good people. This guy was awesome.


    I'm not one quick to flame somebody, or quick to bitch; but when somebody does me right I make sure to let it be known.

    If I lived ANYWHERE in the NE U.S.A I would deal with this guy exclusively.

    Just thought I'd post it. Great Ebay experience and a hell of a good dealer. Good to meet a guy like him.

    :beer: to Bob Magistri.

    Interesting Tid-Bit on the drive down from CT.


    Just checked the coolant. BONE Dry. I was wondering why it was running at about 225*.


    Filled it up and it was back down to about 190*.


    Now ain't that almost a good way to ruin a sale? s***.


    Still VERY pleased. Just got the front door windows and the windshield tinted. Looks NICE.

    Make sure you don't mix green stuff with the orange GM DeathCool (DexCool) . In fact, if it's got DeathCool in it, the first thing I'd do is get it flushed out and replaced with green stuff... (DeathCool will turn into orange jello inside your engine block and ruin the engine if you mix it... or, it will turn into orange jello if you get a pinhole leak in your heater hose) There are currently class-action suits against GM for the DeathCool fiasco.

    I bought my 97 Mercedes E Class diesel off of Ebay. (Private Seller) I was very pleased with the whole transaction. The car truly was better than advertised. I showed up at his house, he brought me inside and took out a folder with all service records and everything. It turns out he had been putting AMSOIL synthetic in it every 2000 miles since the day he bought it... Basically he was a great seller, did not try to hide anything and was as descriptive as possible. Even warned in the EBay listing about the alarm system being on the fritz and locking you out of the car if you're not careful (I had that fixed right away)
