Default Package Pony's?

This may have been discussed already and if so please direct me to that thread. I did a search but did not see any readily apparent related threads. Then again I never have much luck with the search function here.

Anyway, what are everyone's thoughts concerning the "Package Pony's" auction on eBay? The price seems reasonable especially when compared to say a Dynacorn body shell. The price of the "Package Pony's" is very similar to the MSRP of a 69 Mustang shell from Dynacorn that does not include the trim, interior, paint, etc. that are all part of the eBay package. For someone who is not concerned about a "numbers matching" car this might not be a bad way to go. It should also avoid the VIN issue that might come up when using a new body shell.

I get the idea but I'm always suspicious of people listing something for sale but using pictures of something else to illustrate "what it could look like".

FWIW, I have saw their listings on ebay a few times. They are actually about a 30 minute drive from my home, but I've never been by their shop. I am rather skeptical about what kind of product your really getting. Their feedback rating is 94.7% and there have been a some negative comments left, but there are always two sides to a story.

There are alot of what if's with purchasing a car in this manner.

There was just a long thread about these guys a few weeks (or a month) ago. I'll try to find it.

I would be surprised if that was a genuine Mach 1.

His response was "16995.00". That's it. No explanation, no questions from him. If I were serious his response would have probably resulted in me changing my mind because he didn't exactly provide any real information or show any indication that he would keep me informed about what I was buying. "Pig in a poke" indeed.

Yeah, I don't get it.

What a perfect sales opportunity for the guy and he blew it.

If a potential sale does not motivate them beyond a one word response, how do you think they would deal with a customer who buys a car and then has a complaint or concern? I doubt they would receive anything vaguely considered customer service. It always amazes me that people with no communication skills, little regard to standard business etiquette and an overall shady demeanor, always have such a drive to go into business (if that is what you call it when you slap a corny name into a misleading ebay auction). They are selling rushed, incomplete rebuilds for high prices.

All the good comments are on jerseys and such... the bad one that stands out:
with no response from seller.
