Looking forward to the book.

Jim, thanks much. That was fast. I have only glanced at the firstfew pages and can already see this is money well spent in my quest to research this thing to death, as my wife would say.

Achim: Sorry, I just found your payment at PayPal after I saw this posting on the forum. I got no notification from PayPal. I suspect it is because you might have emailed to my OLD email address at MSN, as that has ouccurred once or twice before, when people erroneously use my old address.

PayPal recognizes that old address as being mine, and credits me the payment, but sends the notification to the OLD email address, so I don't even know someone has placed an order! I have tried to purge that old MSN address from all my ad threads on the forum, but it is evidently still there somewhere, probably in old threads I posted unrelated to the book ads. My correct current email address for the last 2 years has been:

JimGnitecki@gmail.com

Anyway, I just emailed you the e-book now that I have found the order! Sorry for the inconvenience!

Jim - I fired off a Paypal payment to you yesterday for a copy of your e-book on the SSR. Hopefully, this will be the foundation of my research into the process of buying an SSR. Thanks loads. Ron Gilmore (rvg3@shaw.ca).

Ron: The PayPal payment did not come through (I just checked both PayPal and my email account where PayPal sends the notice of funds received and e=book ordered). You may have mistyped my email address which of course is also my PayPal account. The correct email address is:

JimGnitecki@gmail.com

Nevertheless, I am about to email you the e-book so you don't need to wait any longer! Please re-try the PayPal payment, and I'm sure we'll find it was a simple syntax error.

Jim - this morning I have resent the money to you via PayPal for the e-book. This time, I have sent the funds to your current email address. To date, I have received no reply from "Laurel Jones" who appears to have hijacked your old email address and is happy to have received money that was intended for you. I am pursuing this with the PayPal fraud folks. Thanks for the e-book. It arrived and I have already read the chapter on "Why NOT to buy an SSR" to help make sure I am not making a mistake in pursuing such an acquisition. So far, after reading that chapter, I am still good to keep on the hunt. Cheers. Ron.

Thank-you, Ron. It does make you realize that old email addresses, which are unsupervised by nature of them being unused, are attractive targets for hackers who I am told use them for at least 2 different purposes:

1. They use them to send spam email, often not merely selling things, but trying to defraud the recipients. Since the email address on first examination points to someone other than them, and is unsupervised by the original real owner, they have way more time to run the fraud until someone figures out they stole an email address

2. They look for email addresses that are, or were, tied to PayPal, as this under the right conditions enables them to "intercept" payments sent to those email addresses.

Everyone rest assured, my CURRENT PayPal address, "JimGnitecki@gmail.com", is completely safe.

Stay away from that old "msn" address. I long ago purged it from this ad, but some folks are still finding it, about 5 years later, in 5 year old posts I did on the forum. I can't possibly find and edit all this old posts, so if ordering the e-book, just use the current "gmail" based email address in my actual ad and everything will be fine.

Jim - as a postscript to this issue, I did receive a refund today from "Laurel Jones" (belovedbizzare@msn.com) after I got the PayPal folks involved. Solves my issue but as you state above, something is still fishy here. Stay alert! Thanks for your patience Jim. And now, onto reading the book. Ron

Ron: Once PayPal gets involved, they fix the problem! They are very good at protecting buyers. It's important to their reputation as a trusted payment mechanism. That's why my sons and I recommended you let them know. They will probably watch that belovedbizzare account as a result too.

John: I did not know if you have the Mac version of Word on your Mac or not (I use a MacBook myself as my primary computer, and have the Mac version of MS Word, and it works fine with the sample document).

So, I just emailed you the complete e-book. If you don't like it, just don't send me the PayPal payment. If you do like it (and everyone seems to), go to PayPal.com and send the $30 to my PayPal account = my email address = JimGnitecki@gmail.com

Re SSR book

Hi Jim -

I don't think I will need to use your book. Thanks for the copy to take a look at it. Awesome amount of information. I have erased from my drive.

I do have a question re build sheets for my SSR. How do you get one??

Thanks, John

No idea, John. I never had need to ask for one when I had my SSR, and I'm not sure how or who you would contact.

Sorry the book didn't work for you. You are the first.

I am so glad you posted here! PayPal did not send me the normal notice of payment received, so I never knew you had placed your order! After you posted here, I checked my PayPal account and sure enough, there it was.

Sorry for the mess-up. Usually, when someone sends in a payment and I don't hear about it it's because they misspelled my name. Once they go abck and correct the email address, I get the payment. But, it looks like you did nothing wrong - there was simply a glitch in PayPal that resulted in a failure to send me the notice of payment received.

I just emailed you your copy. Hopefully the checklists of items to consider that are included in the e-book will help you do some serious SSR shopping this weekend!

Jim, Thanks received it and went shopping.....Information is fantastic, shopping Very disapointing. I looked at a Red 2003 a couple of days ago that was beautiful, virtually perfect but wasn't sure about a 2003. Went to look at 3 today 1 was gone and the other 2 were pretty bad, dings dents just not well cared for.

Yes, some of them are treated by their current owners as "just another vehicle" versus being special. You want to find the ones that have been treated as special.

I have a very soft spot for 1992 to 1996 C4 Corvettes, and am currently considering feeding that desire. I am finding that I need to look for CONDITION versus year or price. I want one without 6-digit miles on it and I want to avoid the ones whose plastic and rubber have been fossilized by The Texas Sun. I'm getting closer . . .

Jim,
I know how the search can go. I have always been fond of C3 Corvettes and found my 71 LT-1 about 6 years ago and drive it when ever I get the chance. I want the SSR to be a daily driver, I don't put big miles on my cars my work commute is 2.5 miles each way and we also have an 2012 SRX, 05 Tahoe, 67 Chevelle and a 32 Ford 3 Window that is just I am about to build a 6-71 Blown 383 small block for.
Thanks again for the book.....
