somebody shoot this guy...

Buy it, sell it, negotiate, haggle, drag it out from under the workbench or behind the garage and make it someone else's problem!

It is the crank pirate way. At least this person is offering the rest for sale instead of scrapping it. I contacted the seller about the other parts, but after I made an offer, I didn't hear back. I don't think I was real low on my offer either. I have had this experience before with crank pirates. If I wanted to sell something, and somebody made me an offer that I thought was low, I'd make a counter offer. Crank pirates must be easily offended by offers they think are low. :roll:

I tried. As much as I want to keep these parts away from the Chinese, I can't justify spending large $$$ for loose parts of unknown condition when entire cars are available for about $500 in repairable condition.
