Do not buy anything from Bill Mitchell in Inverness Florida. I bought what was supposed to be a 87-89 tach from a v8 car from him off of these classifieds. after I finally recieved it-its a 4 cyl tach. He has my money and will not respond to my E-mails. Please watch out for this guy and learn from my mistake.
Thanks, Mark

Thanks for the warning..I guess that Ive been lucky that i haven't been riped off by anyone off the net, but i always ask for them to send anything i buy C.O.D., that way you can inspect anything you buy from someone....Sorry to have to hear about your loss, that sucks

Is there no recourse for you if this guy obviously lied and misled you? Do you not have his home phone #? Sorry to hear you got screwed.

i ran an ad in these classifieds and even if your not registered here you have to register to post an ad and i would think if nothing else someone could get his ads kicked off the site the bowers or maybe even Mick would be the ones to ask about that

NOT COOL!!!!!! I always try to go and look at the parts before I buy them. If the parts on the net are not within driving distance I do not consider them. I like to look things over before I get them. I learned the hard way too with some small performance parts. Sorry to hear about the ripoff. http://64.21.184.154/ubb/frown.gif Watch out for mustang parts specialties too!!! http://64.21.184.154/ubb/wink.gif

Nope, sorry... he's not a member of the GT Registry.

Mark, I'm really sorry you had a bad experience. http://64.21.184.154/ubb/frown.gif Unfortunately, there's very little we can do to prevent things like that from happening.

You may want to do some checking through some of the internet "people finders" (i.e. through Yahoo.com) to see if you can get his phone number and/or street address. You may get more of a response if you can give him a phone call.

Thanks for your concern guys. I knew that there was nothing anybody coulnd do,but just wanted to warn everyone. Good news is he must have saw this,because he said he would ship me another tach. We will see if it ever gets here, or "gets lost in shipping"

Just reading about stripes in originality section and ran across link to stripes and decals for molding stripe, then I looked at address and it was Inverness Florida. If someone has used graphics express already, maybe they know the guy you are looking for. inverness isn't that big. just an idea.
