    According to a replied the seller gave to a fellow in the Club Cobra:
    "Due to the high volume of internet scams, I give you the chance to receive the car at your home address BEFORE i receive my money for it. I appreciate your interest but I want to let you know that the car is located in Poland. I purchased the car in US and I moved to Europe, in Poland the law is different recording the registration of a vehicle that is outside of Europe, it is expensive and difficult to register this car in Poland, this is the reason of selling. Instead of letting it sit in the garage I've decided to sell it at low price.
    I can ship the car to you, also I can be responsible for the transport cost and you'll pay after inspection. The car looks and runs fantastic! Within 19 days you will get the car and you will have a period of 2 days to inspect the car and when the inspection period ends, if everything is fine you can make the payment.
    CLEAN TITLE IN HAND, NO LIENS OR ISSUES!"

    I got an email reply from the seller, he wants to know my bank info and if I want to take a loan???
    Careful guys

    Lou,

    From the picture of that Cobra I don't see any way it can have all of the features he listed and the fact he says it is in Poland would really make me stay away from it. Also that low price is suspect as is a lot of other things about it. Thanks for [posting the warning so Silver and Nomad won't get caught by this.
