Subject: Syncro for Sale in Arcata, CA - Rip Off!
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"
I drove by the "F" Street Garage this afternoon in Arcata and saw an '86
Syncro Vanagon I've seen around town many times before but this time with a
"For Sale" sign in the window. It's a real beater, bashed up and rusty on
almost every square inch, with things bolted to the outside of it. I thought
it looked like it might make a good parts van, depending on the mileage of
coarse. So I called "F" St. to see if they knew how much the owner wanted
for it. I was completely floored when the guy who answered, so casually
said, $6000.00. He went on to say that this vehicle had excellent running
gear and I can't remember his exact wording but made some comment about it
being "redinged", like this was a good thing. When I expressed my disbelief
in this asking price, he suggested I stop wasting his time and hung up on
me. Nice guy!
This seems to be a major problem here in Humboldt County. All the VW
mechanics I've meet or heard of here, are thieves and/or hacks. This is why
I don't trust any mechanic here and have resorted to doing everything
The old saying, "if you want it done right,...
I sure hope this greedy dude doesn't get a dime for his parts-mobile, Syncro
"Inga" the 87 Syncro
