Just Sold My Gtr But Very Suss...

Recommended Posts

I've had my GTR on the market for about a month, but someone called up today and then turned up with cash. Fair enough, it was pretty cheap ($25,500 for a good, original R33 GTR), but it had just been broken into and I hadn't yet fixed the the broken ignition lock and plastics on the dash.

The guy pretty much asked no questions.. didn't care about VIN/chassis or a REVS check, didn't check that I was actually the owner, wasn't concerned in the slightest that it was QLD rego sold in NSW.

He even told me that he'd lost his license and then drove it when he left. He wasn't concerned about the security system and didn't really seem like the type of guy who'd buy a GTR on a whim.

He turned up with $25k in cash in a lockbox.

I guess I've got the cash, and it's genuine from what I can tell and not sequential etc, but I've got a really bad feeling about this.

Is there a scam in this?

I'm half expecting either men in balaclavas at my door tonight to reclaim the cash, or to be called by the poilce to let me know my car was just used in a robbery.

due to the fact its friday....id take a couple of days off somewhere with the cash....i hope you had correctly filled out the notice of disposal etc and have a copy of a written reciept. Staying at your home address with that ammount of cash is not a good idea. I know of people who would kill you for half that ammount.

Can't you take it to a cop station or some place and get them to check whether it's legitimate or something? (ie not fake money) I saw a guy walk in there once and pull out a few thousand in 50s and got it checked.

Well what sort of person did look like ?? was he well spoken well dressed ?? i wouldnt worry if i was you as long you had a sales contract, transfer papers and dobuble checked the name and his driver's license you should be alright.

I ve had people coming with cash asked to buy my cars before no big deal.

When i was selling my 33 there was some dodgy guy.

Said he was comming from Tassie, just to buy my car, which he has never seen before. Wanted me to meet him at the airport and he was gonna pay cash and take my car from there. I found it to be too didgy so i pretty much told him if he wants to see the car he would have to come to my house. He kept trying to bargain me trying to MAKE me go to the airport so i pretty much told him to f**k off.

on another note i would have made him go get a bank cheque and not pay such a large amount by cash. Atleast you are then sure that the money is there and real.

actually kris thats where alot of the problems have been.. fake bank cheques.. and it has happened.. quite alot.. alot less nowdays tho

    • Your stuff look much better than the original stuff I used on my tri-y headers, which didn't survive the swap, that did work OK though, but currently the headers are only ceramic coating, which, while it is meant to be the bees knees, it really only reduces temps by "not alot" and is more for protecting the mild steel pipes The new stuff is meant to maintain an "air gap" which "apparently" helps the insulation LOL In other news I'm taking it into Autotech next week for them to have a look at the RaceTCS, the spot where I want it, and the program "thingie" that is on my lap top computa which you would know as it is basically the same thing as your Racelogic  I'm really keen to get this fitted  
    • OK, a couple of questions arise. Are you suggesting that you want to swap to the S2 ECU so that you can Nistune it? Because....none of the R33 ECUs can be Nistuned. What would an ATESSA controller do to help? You have no ATESSA. Beyond that, the S1 and S2 ECU pinouts are nearly identical, as far as I can remember. A quick look around on SAU yields the following for S1. As I said, almost all of it is identical. I think there might be a few changes around the AFM and the ECCS relay, not much else. There's not functionally anything particularly different between a manual and auto ECU pinout. Can run a manual engine on an auto ECU quite trivially, for example.
    • Hey guys Was recently replacing the water pump and timing belt. Came across one of the washers for the timing gear and balancer were bent. Just wondering how that would of happened
