World Pac has everything, and if they don't maybe RockAuto or a model specific place can. I have so little issue with getting stuff for my Daihatsus that people don't believe me at all when I say I can get an axle in the same time as for an 89 Accord.

I mean the guy sounds like an idiot, and the car is obviously pretty ragged, but some of his trade requests seem pretty reasonable.

I was just laughing at 1) his super low-balling of how much its going to take to get the engine running right on that FD

and 2) he says "now I know this car is worth $15,000". Yeah, maybe if it was in good running order and wasn't beat to poo poo on the outside. As it is now? Give me a break.

So I've only made one car purchase long distance before - the buyer was about to take a road trip in my direction so I paid him a miniscule deposit after a friend checked out the car, and a week later he delivered it to my door where I paid him the full amount.

I'm now looking at buying long distance again - the price is good and I'd like to close the deal before someone scoops it up (AP2 S2000 sold by not-a-car-lady). A goon is checking out the car for me in the next day or two, but how do you guys recommend I secure it?

I was thinking of giving her $100 to hold on to it after I make an offer she accepts, but someone else could come make a better offer between then and the time I pick up the car, and she'd have no obligation to honor our deal (or return my deposit). Alternatively, I'm worried about putting money down and having some unpleasant surprise with the car when I go to collect, and not getting my deposit back there (and being out a round trip airfare).

So yeah - what's best procedure here? I'd like to swoop down there and just buy it now, but I have a packed schedule before leaving town at the end of the week, so it's vulnerable to other buyers for a few days.

Is an escrow service a thing for this?

I do not think that word means what you think it means.

On eBay here. Of course I'd probably be tempted to take it at $5k and get it repainted ASAP, but if it's at $7500 with reserve, he wants too much money for it to boot.

Craigslist doesn't do Boolean searching. You can get around that by using an RSS reader that has Boolean searching. Google Reader had it, that's gone. I don't know what the best option is now.

Also, I got my RSS feeds via Crazedlist, which is also gone. So basically the tools I used to use to do the kind of search you want don't exist anymore; but the principle is still sound.

Umm, yes it do. I just did a search where I united two search terms with a pipe character "|" and I know the minus works as well. Fo sho.
