I've found a car I'd like to buy from someone posting on the internet on a reliable classic car forum (Thehamb).

What do I need to know about how to protect myself and go about this deal? I've never bought a car off someone online before and the car would be shipped to me.

Only things I've done so far are: Spoken to him on the site, emailed him, spoken to him on the phone, spoken to another person who bought a car from him before (he had good experience with the seller), searched the forum for any bad information posted about him (nothing came up obviously)

Any help would be appreciated.

Can he give you any other references? Where does he live? I don't think that the sale of 1 car is enough.That could be fake.What state does he live in? And you?

Unfortunately he lives in Washington state and I live on the freaking East coast. These deals happen all the time and are fine, but I'm just wary. I think speaking about it here on the forum will just make me more wary lol. :ninja:

Washington is the greatest state in the USA so there is nothing to worry about as it is full of honest, good looking, intelligent and humble people like myself. In fact if you can afford it you should just send whatever you were going to spend on the car to him and let him have it since he would probably use the money to develop a cure for cancer...




Nah but really just get a million close up pictures and do the transaction through pay pal.
