Mexican watercooled bus for sale locally.  Wonder if it is registered in BC.  Pics still show Mexican plates.

I went to bed early last night and missed a text from a friend that there was a 1954 barndoor on Craigslist for sale without an engine.  The ad is gone now.  Who scooped it up???!  Nice score whoever got it!!!

yup, that add is definately making the rounds!

too bad the seller didnt use any pics of the actual collection...

if we search google for those images they come up from 3 different places...the overhead is from a place on the island (https://earthspiritvw.wixsite.com/crankcrankvrooom), the pic of the 2 splits & a bay is from an add on thesamba.com (https://www.thesamba.com/vw//classifieds/detail.php?id=964545) and the pic of the 2 rows of bays is all over pinterest...

plus...55 westys in newmarket ontario for 350k US + buyer takes all and has to remove them + $500 just to view them = too vague, too much and not worth it, imho.

Pics from all over the world = scam.  In this case, the scam is the $500 viewing fee.  I bet you have to pay it in advance.

Exactly what I was thinking, luckily the scammer is a little out of touch on their "package price" so it's not likely to cause the stampede of speculators they are hoping for.

ya, i agree and thats kind of what i was getting at :) a scam is a scam, but what is this seller getting at...?  :P

no doubt it reeks of fishy shenanigans, but i was also originally thinking that this seller may have "something", its just not worth posting real pics of it because its all junk, and he/she will get more interest being vague and throwing around some big numbers!

so we do a little digging...the seller has 24 listings on kijiji and 1 add is of a bay window middle seat...

https://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details.html?adId=1029455362

the pics of the bay window middle seat have "thesamba.com" watermark on them like when you place an add on that site. so we go to thesamba.com and search the bay window parts section for "middle seat" and we find this...

https://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.php?id=2184385

the seats look different. the one in the kijiji add is cleaner, has painted legs & has seat belts. but the white stuffing underneath the left side of both seats is very similar. i think they may be the same seats.

also if we look at thesamba.com sellers other adds we see an add for 4 westys...

https://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.php?id=2085516

and in the background of one of the pics there we see a red sonoma like the one in one of the kijiji adds, and in that kijiji add we see an orange westy with another yellow-ish westy behind it...

https://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/pix/7521682.jpg

https://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details.html?adId=1367027026

https://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/pix/7521680.jpg

even though it looks like some vehicles have been moved around a bit, they all look like the same vehicles.

plus, the grammar/spelling/text in the adds is very similar.

so, i think this is the same guy/seller. rob (ROCKET), hopefully his health issues aren't too serious, he's been a member on thesamba.com for almost 13 years, he's got 24 adds on kijiji and he's got westy's and vw stuff. and i think we can all agree that he'll never get anywhere remotely close to 350k for 55 westy's. and the chances of him getting anyone to pay $500 for a viewing are slim to none, and slim just got banned from the asf...

...but...will we ever know how many westy's he actually has?  :police: :cool:

Impressive detective work there Mr. B!
So it seems he's legit, I can understand his desire to filter out the tire kickers and tourists with the "viewing fee", but he's still way too optomistic with his pricing, especially if he's in a panic to liquidate.

I wish him luck.

Whereas there is one price if he was to sell one at a time to 55 different people, buying all at once is a massive undertaking for somebody and a huge discount would be involved. Also it looks like most are bays so the price has to reflect that.
