    I responded to this posting. I sent an email asking 3 specific questions. Michael called me and demanded money from me. I repeated each question to him and he accused me of not having any money -- did not answer any questions. He told me he was the original owner but the ad says there are 2 owners so I asked him about this and he again accused me of not having money. I told him I have the money, but I want to make sure I'm not buying a piece of garbage, which was why I was asking questions. He then started yelling at me about calling his car and himself garbage. I don't know where to report this.
