The last couple times I tried to pull an April Fool'* joke, it was funny, but I knew the AFJ police would be all over me this year after 'selling' the SSEi last year.
Preparations started early. Polishing the SLE (or at least the timing of it) was deliberately planned, as was the Craigslist ad. I priced it high so nobody would be interested. Little did I know that even at that high-end-of-the-scale price, I got SWAMPED with interest, only one of which seems to be someone from here trying to mess with me.
No, I didn't sell the intake, either, although I still need to put it back on the car. It'* sitting here beside my computer desk. GoldenBullet was in on that part, as I didn't want anyone getting overly excited about it, so I had a 'tag man' standing by for the first bid.
That was necessary to pull of the joke.
The money? I don't have that kind of money. That was a stack of mostly 20'* and 50'*. I manage the duplex I live in for a friend. I asked the 3 guys next door to pay rent in cash this time for the sole purpose of pulling off the AFJ.
Yes, the car would probably be gone by now a couple times, but for the PIF trans. I have alot more respect for what this Forum and it'* members did for my car. It'* here for the long-term if I have anything to say about it.
Y'all thought you had me pinned there for a bit, but I gotcha in the end.
(the entire Staff was also in the dark about it, including Don, who I speak with regularly)
