Hey man, that's a really sexy dog you've got on your tank. I'm really into dogs. I'm wondering if you
could tell me the age and sex of the pitty? (I wouldn't mind having a few tank slappers if you know what I
mean!)

I'd also like to know if the title on the bike is clean, who did the
jet kit install and when a good time to take a look at this beauty
would be!

It was on her ebay auction which was taken down just before I posted, that was from the cached version. Should have clarified.

CNN just picked this up...amazing!

http://www.cnn.com/2008/LIVING/pers...e.ap/index.html

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Florida (AP) -- She's tried nightclubs and online dating sites, but now a 42-year-old single mother is looking for love where everyone else's heart is breaking: the real estate market.

"I'm struggling...I don't want to lose my house and I want to find somebody," says Deven Trabosh.

After a year of trying to sell her four-bedroom home and eight years of singledom, Deven Trabosh is offering her South Florida home and a shot at marrying her on the Internet.

"I figured, let's combine the ad, because I'm looking for love and I'm looking to sell the house," said Trabosh, a Barbie-esque blonde who teeters around the nearly 2,000-square-foot house in patent leather heels.

"Marry a Princess Lost in America," Trabosh wrote in the ads she posted on eBay and Craigslist last week. She describes a life of romance and travel and a home decorated with vaulted ceilings, upgraded tile and a soaking tub in a gated community with a pool and tennis courts.

Trabosh, a licensed real estate agent who hasn't practiced in years, knew that she would struggle to sell the home in the troubled real estate market but insists that her fairy-tale ad isn't just a sales gimmick.

"I'm struggling. ... I don't want to lose my house, and I want to find somebody," said Trabosh, who changed her name in the ad to Traboscia to keep people from finding her in the Florida phone book. "So I came up with this dream plan, because I've always dreamed about being a fairy-tale princess."

She listed the home for $340,000 on a sell-it-yourself Web site but upped the price, adding a $500,000 shipping fee to include her companionship on eBay.

Trabosh says eBay removed her ad, though she planned to change the wording and repost it. Under the site's prohibited services policy, eBay does not allow the sale of human beings, body parts or relationships, spokeswoman Catherine England said Friday.

Trabosh hasn't received any serious offers but says she's had nearly 500 responses, mostly positive, including one from Ottie of Surrey, England, who e-mailed to say, "You are offering the perfect life with the perfect American princess."

She whips out her laptop to show off a picture of Claudio, a handsome Italian wine and cheese taster who she's been corresponding with since he responded to the ad. Seated on a white leather love seat in her living room, she giggles almost girlishly about him. They're hoping to meet in Miami in a few weeks.

She's gotten criticism too. Her 21-year-old daughter, Haley, says she just wants her mom to find love, but her 14-year-old daughter says her mother is embarrassing her. Other have e-mailed to say she's selling herself short.

"I'm not selling myself. I'm selling love ... to meet that true love," Trabosh said. "Of course, it's gonna take more chemistry and connection. It's not going to be instantaneous that I'm just going to be automatically for sale. ... It's a package deal for true love."

Trabosh isn't the first to use the Internet to hawk the unconventional. A heartbroken Australian man recently tried to sell his life online, including his house, job and friends. Others have sold body space, promising to display advertisements for the highest bidder.

"There is a plethora of quirky ads on craigslist that pop up on craigslist every day, and this appears to be one of them," spokeswoman Susan MacTavish Best said in an e-mail. "Scads of couples have met and, thus, married through craigslist over the last twelve years sometimes marrying the person who bought their tired couch."

Ideally, Trabosh hopes a European man will close the deal and says she's willing to move overseas.

"I know I'm putting myself out there. I'm sincere. I believe in true love," she said. "I want to get married again."

Apparently she is "adding a $500,000 shipping fee to include her companionship" what a bargain. Her 14 year-old daughter is horrified, I guess she just has to live with the geezer that takes Mom up on the offer?

Someone must have rushed right over... he pulled the ad... Thanks for the screen cap.

Aran: Because they can ;-) I much prefer someone doing this to an RX-7 over someone putting on some ridiculous body kit, giant wing, neon, altezza, and other glorious

And I'd guess he spent all his cash on the engine and install and then tought "Holy gently caress... I can't pay my rent/mortgage/bills!"

I'm asking the exact price I paid for it as I didn't ride it but to the gas station and back before I relieved that my girth was going to be an issue. There are very little cosmetic issues. Well maintained, Gets 70 miles a gal. Also known by Honda as a CN 250, It rides great and is designed for speeds of 70 - 75+. Please only serious inquiries leave a message at 386-752-9066.

The palm pilot is a useful dtalogger setup, but I think the guy is too stupid to understand how it functions.

Personally, I love to buy cars from people like that. After two dozed tire kickers came and went, I would show up with a grand in cash and offer to transfer the title RIGHT NOW. You'd be surprised how often it works. Stock 5speed GSXs of that vintage are worth 4-6K to the right buyer. All I'd have to do is remove the rice parts and maybe change a couple of syncros in the transmission.
