Just tried to buy a Yellow 06 S2000. Seller said no accidents & no claims. Had a supposed CarProof which DID show no ICBC claims. Ran a check on ICBC since I didn't trust the guy. Woop de doo.

Be careful out there.

27-Feb-2014 COLLISION NO DETAILS NO DETAILS UNKNOWN
27-Feb-2014 COMPREHENSIVE $1394.67 ESTIMATE UNKNOWN

26-Jul-2013 COLLISION NO DETAILS NO DETAILS
14-Feb-2013 COLLISION $1163.81 REPAIRS LEFT FRONT CORNER

5 collisions in a year...

I couldn't even do that on purpose! I've only been in one collision (no fault, under $600) in 8 years with my car.

ICBC Claim History

...
It may not be the seller's fault...

I recently did a CarProof on a car. I knew it had at least one claim on it beforehand. The CarProof showed that it was clean. After talking to CarProof, they had to call up ICBC to retrieve the proper info.

I approached him with the report and took a screenshot. He claimed I doctored the jpeg.

Honestly. ICBC VIN records don't lie. I was considering making a big post to show all the conversations and the photos.. but decided against it. Anyway, thought in case anyone was considering that S2000 too, just do you homework.

In general when buying a used car.. trust no one.. haha

Can you post the link?
I have a friend looking for an S2000 and I'm sure it will warn those who are looking as well

No I don't feel comfortable singling someone out on the Internet. Do a search on Craiglist with the information I provided above. There aren't that many S2000s for sale.

the richmond one advertised as no accidents but asking $10k less than the next guy who's listing has been flagged and removed?



Insomnia leads to aimless browsing of videos

Thought this might be interesting for some

a 1960 talk show in colour featuring a Plymouth advertisement @ 1:20 the beginning (as well as a young hottie from seattle)
At this hour the way the car was advertised and its features are quite an interesting sight to see

Maybe MG1 remembers watching this on tv?


6 way adjutable seat, push button gear selection, vinyl record player, air suspension, etc

Porn makes a shitload of money because it manipulates people on a basic level. If anyone wants to work with me, PM me! (It's all legal, obviously, duh)
I know css and html, and learning python/ruby currently.

send me a pm.

Damn wookpecker on my roof. It comes by randomly every couple of days. Sounds like a mini jack hammer. More annoying than aluminum pie plates making noise in the wind. I'll have to play Elmer Fudd and get me a shotgun. I think the little bastard is pecking at the B Vent pipe or something, because the pecking rings throughout the house. Hopefully no damage to house.

Nature is a bitch......... In a few weeks, it'll be coyotes howling at night. Shotgun or flame thrower? LOLOLOLOL

I see the ad is taken down. I guess it was sold... It was a 2006 Rio S2000 price was $18,900 which seemed like a fantastic deal.

Oh look he's back:

Can anyone help me ID a wheel. It was on a white, lowered BRZ (not scion) with an aftermarket exaust.

I linked the closest thing I could find. It sorta looks the link below with a red center cap.

Color is different. It's a medium grey... kinda like cement. Not dark enough to be gunmetal. Not chrome. I don't remember how many spokes it had (5-6?) but I remember the spokes are thicker than the image below:

Damn........ I want my youth back!

Actually, I'm forever young, but the 60's. I miss it. The 70's were just as good.
