This car is stolen, it does not have a local MTO registration as it probably was an auction car from the states, but it was stolen from the guy who bought it at auction, I got the seller to eventually admit it. I just wanted the motor setup but the guy told me to take the whole car for the same price. I would not even buy the motor off this guy if he had it out of the car, he is such a sketchbag probably will throw the blame on you for the car if and when the time came. The seller has an indian accent over the phone, and he is indian when I met him in person (just so you know which car this is). He is also quite stupid, met me at his house, car is on his property under a tarp, called me with a registered phone number, lol.

offered you the entire S2000 for the price of the engine?

seller obviously doesn't know how to be un-suspicious

yeah, for a damn good price too. I was looking at about 2500 bucks after towing for the whole car, my theory was I can use the shell for track. But after I learned it was stolen there goes that idea. It was an f20C that would cost me 2500 with no key, that means I needed to buy a standalone for another thousand. thats 3500 for an F20C with standalone in unknown condition (I ran a carfax and the car has had odometer problems). So 3500 bucks in I might have a blown motor, not worth it. F22C can be had for that price range in good low km running condition with all the stock gadgetry to run it.

If it's known stolen, why don't you report it? Obviously there is a really upset person out there right now wishing he had his car back.

^ that's bull****. anonymous tip. I'd be pissed if someone stole my car, then someone that knew it was stolen and knew where it was didn't report it. hell, give me the guy's info, I'll call him, get the vin (so I can run a carfax on it) and his address and I'll just call the cops.

You get what you pay for and can't always get something for nothing.. If it seems too good to be true on kijiji it generally is.

I hate most cops, but I hate car thieves waaaay more. Did you get the vin code by any chance? If you don't want to call the BLT crew, try to contact the owner and let them know where their car is.

not true, I have found and purchased many things far below their value on Kijiji. There are definitely more deals than scams out there, I guess it depends on what your looking for. Who would of thought someone is stupid enough to sell a stolen car on Kijiji?

Don't waste your money on an F22c, f20c is better and cheaper!

I thought I would run the vin and contact the owner, but the car is from the states, most obviously an auction car that was imported by someone. There is no-one I could contact, it wasn't a local car.

I gave the cops as much information as I could; 3 phone numbers, address, VIN #, name. Unforutunately there is no way for me to follow up on this as the woman stated I need to leave my personal information to follow up on it, that has to be pure BS. Anyways, I hope the owner gets his car back.

why f20? F22 has more torque and more displacement, so when you want to mod the F22C there is more potential because you have an extra 200CC. Especially if you decide to boost? Or if you decide to stroke the 2.2 to 2.4? Yes at first I wanted an F20 so I can build a super high revving motor with some crazy cams, till I noticed thats just me being stupid and thinking the motor is a 4AGE, lol. Torque=Win.

and god that was funny mike.
