Nathaniel aka "Gilligan" in Victoria
« on: April 24, 2015, 08:15:44 PM »
Sorry to have to say be careful with this guy.

He advertises two Vanagon automatic transmissions on the Victoria site for $250 each.  Soon afterwards, Henry at Intermeccanica asks me if I know where he can get an automatic trans because he's got a customer with a dumb left foot.  I get him the contact info for Nathaniel and also hook him up with someone who's driving to the mainland with a truck (Thanks Josh!)  I tell Henry that an automatic trans is worth very little since most people want a manual, and a lot of cars get converted one way and never the other.  I suggested the asking price was a bit high.

A few weeks later, I asked Henry how it went down.  He told me the guy RAISED his price when Henry first contacted him.  Apparently, the price he posted in his ad was a price for "a buddy" and that since he didn't know Henry, he would have to pay more.

Nathaniel, if you ever read this, I've got a hint for you.  When you post an ad on the WORLD WIDE WEB, it's a price for anyone on the whole planet.
