Ripped off by another enthusiast.
I know some of you are going to say " you cant trust anyone over the internet", but this guy is someone I thought Id be able to have some faith in.
I brought a 460 blue thunder dual quad manifold on this site from a a guy going by BGRACING. Sent him the money via paypal and never heard from him again. Seemed like a normal honest guy wanting to help out someone who was interested in the same cars.
After some investigation, he owns, or used to own Big Gun Racing Automatics in Blackwell MO, which is supposedly where he was posting the item from. The guy (Matt Heady) and his company have built transmissions for a lot of Monster truck teams over the years. Again, the type of guy you would think is pretty honest and straightforward.
If anyone could help me out with being able to contact him, I would appreciate it, as I only have his first and last name, town and paypal email account. Which he doesnt answer emails to me anymore.
Ive searched through the MO phone directory online and couldnt get any numbers which worked or were still in use.
Im pretty angry at myself for trusting someone as much as this, in the past three or four months I have spent around $4000 of my very hard earned money on engine parts in the USA, all on locally manufactured goods by buying online, and never had a single problem. Im not very impressed that now I have to buy another manifold which is going to far exceed what it would have cost me to just go and buy a new one in the first place.
