I'm getting the feeling that a lot of us festers' parents had time to kill in the early spring/late winter of the years we were born.

Had the CookieMobile inspected as part of Boston BMWCCA club undercarriage inspection day. Motor mounts are beginning to crack and one of the wheels is slightly bent...but that's it. Score!

Now my headcold is back in force...so it will be a night on the couch for me......

Just got back from test driving an FR-S with manual trans. I've been searching around for months to find one with a 6-speed to test drive. Pretty, pretty nice, but man, I hate car salesmen. The shifter is amazing, but I thought the clutch felt a little artificial. Very nice car overall though. I really liked how plain and basic the interior was. Nothing present but what matters.

So here is another update on are not so friendly neighborhood scammer.

Scammer emailed me.
“have you done it what is the shipping details?”

I emailed back.
“I sent it. Here is proof.”




I actually sent him a yellow envelope that looks like it has an iPhone in it. In the envelope there is a page with six black and white pictures of an iPhone printed on it and on the other side it reads “Congratulations on your purchase of six black and white pictures of an iPhone for $450 plus $100 shipping.”

Scammer emailed me.
“what is the tracking number?”

I emailed back.
“A tracking nuber would have cost me $11 more so I did not get one.”

Scammer emailed me.
“that is ****(sh!t)...how would you say that you send item without tracking number and no receipt..scan the receipt and show me this oen you sent is not receipt”
Then
“there is no shipment without tracking i live in UK and my daughter studies in Ghana and i have always buy item for her from ebay in UK and there are always tracking details.scan the shipment receipt and send it to me if not i don't buy what u said about $11...that is all ****(sh!t) mate”

I emailed back.
http://ircalc.usps.com/ExtraServices...&o=1&mt=4&c=2I mailed it frist class letter so no tracking. Check the link if you do not believe me.

Scammer emailed me this and a fake PayPal email.
“please my daughter has just notify me that custom charges need to be paid for this item in ghana so i have added a sum of $110.00 to the previous payment £$550.00 so i will like you to send the$100.00 and use the $10.00 as the western union fee so that paypal can credit you with your a full payment which will be $660.00 also if you spend any additional charge paypal will cover that all you need his to send the money via western union money transfer to the information below that his the custom officer

Sender's Name And Address
Total Amount sent after charges
mtcn (Western Union Money Transfer)
Text Question And Answer
please i am very sorry for the mix up okay so you can get your money please i will be waiting for the information
Thanks”



That is just flat out douchey. I mean it is one thing to scam someone out of an iPhone but then the sec. you think it is in the mail to ask for $100 more. The world would be a much better place if this guy laid down on some train tracks.

I emailed back.
“I do not use Western Union. So I sent your money moneygram instead and attached the receipt.
Here is the info you will need

I'm still looking for one for the test drive. So far all I've gotten has been sales douches telling me that automatic is "just like the standard, they drive the same since they're the same car".

Yet for some reason they get all up in arms when I walk away saying "Idiots..." not quite under my breath.
