This should set some sort of weird record for a GT listing.

Truth in advertising... He stated that "the ergonomics are great..." I'm not sure what ergonomics are, but I'll agree, they are great.

My computer will not let me view it, a warning pops up that says it is a phishing website. I tried posting the item number from JP's post after opening e-Bay in a new window and it still blocks me. I tried going in through e-Bay Motors with the same result. The ad did stay up long enough for me to catch it was in Riner, Va. and that alone would lead me to believe that it is a fake. There have been a number of fake ads recently that have listed little hillbilly towns such as this in Southwest Virginia as the location for vehicles.

Yep, I got a phishing report, but it came up after the site came up. I guess you would call this "Studebaker" a modified.;)

I got the phishing warning, too, and the ad wouldn't even stay up long enough for me to see it at all. If we all got the same thing, my guess is that the warnign is legit, not just my firewall being set too high.

I will verify that. it redirects you to a site that LOOKS like ebay, but check the URL - it is NOT ebay.

Is there a commission to be made by dropping dimes?

If you do put in your user name and password in one of these situations, go to eBay and change your password immediately.

Yeah I looked that over earlier too. Coupla things that looked out of sorts. The immediate redirect to the user name and password when you looked at it, that was a dead giveaway for me not to give up either. It also killed the interest on the item pretty quick as well when he started in on that. The other thing was after the third time I stopped the redirect midstream to look at the page. Thats the funniest 63 Hawk GT I ever saw. Had the resemblance closer to a three window streetrod(dont quote me on the body style though :)) than a Hawk. Course it was hard to see as the pinup standing in front of it was blocking my view. [:o)]
