It's a scam. All the telltale signs are there. The ad contains poor spelling and grammar. The pictures are from a car show and could have been taken by anyone. They were most likely pulled off the web by the scammer. The description of the car is poor at best. The person that owns this car would provide a lot more detail. The scammer doesn't because he doesn't know enough about the car.
Thanks for the quick replies everyone. I wish these scammers would find a new way to make a living!
I saw a Fulvia coupe for the first time a couple of weeks ago. As I suspected, they are much prettier in person than in pictures. It's the one car that I'd consider giving up my Sprint for.
I really need to find a hard-top something. It's getting cold here. The low this morning was 39 degrees and that 50 mile drive in the topless spider from the girlfriend's house to work was rather brisk!
What baffles me, of course, is why anyone would try to scam a Fulvia, particularly a Fanalone, as opposed to something utterly anonymous, like a Miata or an MGB. I suppose that the moron who thought he could get away with this simply doesn't have any idea how tight-knit a community the Fulvias inhabit--and how tight-knit and vigilant BBs like this one are.
My thanks again to everyone. As I said earlier, I would have caught it this evening, but wouldn't have been able to alert eBay until tomorrow.
You could be right. Of course, it occurs to me that what we may be completely missing is that he/they are scamming all sorts of cars, and we're just not seeing the Gullwings and Hemi 'Cuda scams because we're not looking for those cars.
