    I'm trying to get this guy to answer a question I have about this mini. It's a 1971 offered locally and is supposed to have little mileage, all original even down to the tires. Price is low if it is what he (original owner) says.

    It's a Craigslist product. I already thought about bringing my "little friend" along. This one is $750.

    Yup, craigslist. How many miles does that one have? Make them send a pic of the miles. Don't get your hopes up.:cautious:

    Same tag bolts and if you look at the front brake cable it has a little kink in it, in the same place. Look at the cable where the grass starts from the street, in your pic. Then look at my pic.

    The first thing that caught my eye was the similarities of the grass in both pictures.

    Just received a email from the scammer, yesterday I asked for HIS phone to reach him. Scammers will not give a phone # and a time to reach them. They said the ct70 is still for sale and wants me to send them MY email addy to send more pics. Also said they don't know how to use apps on his phone. LOL! I reported them as a scam.
    Almost wondering now if this was a pic that was stolen from ctking that sold for a record setting ten grand. Anyone remember that?

    I just got the same B.S. about wanting my email address. If I can only find a way of sending this knucklehead a lightening bolt through the internet.

    Perfect time of the year for one of these, $31.16 plus $8.95 shipping on MeTV's website. Please allow 4-6 weeks for shipping. No personnel checks! LOL!

    Yep, too memorable to forget the $10K "barrier" getting broken.

    How about emailing the following "have cash in hand, please send your address...ready to complete the transaction ASAP!!!!" Surely, he knows his address and has demonstrated he can at least type and hit the "reply" button, to send email.

    Anyone have the email address, please post it...that could answer a few questions.

    Craigslist does not give up a potential buyers or the sellers real email until you go back and fourth a couple times with e mails for a posting. This scammer wants email addresses to sell. I know I will not go back and fourth with them, I don't want them to get my email. Hopefully enough people flag the ads as soon as they look at the ad. You can flag the sellers initial email response as a scam also. I did.
