Here was his last response..... notice again, he never answered any questions  about why the car is different.

"okie dokie!! then why did you even write in the first place.... have a
nice life"


Then he sent this email:

"Dont know why I let it get to me but I just watched it and eerything is exactly! The same, don't know what your looking at"


Exaclty the same??? What movie is he watching?

You just have to remember the old adage about arguing with an idiot -- even if you "win", he's still an idiot. ;)

Wow! This guy is way out there, apparently he hopes someone will take him at his word. The sad truth is, probably someone will. I could'nt help noticing that the appraisal he photograghed appears to have been doctored. The vin# and the 1980 trans am as well as a couple other important facts are in bold type and appear clearer than the rest If I was thinking about buying the car I'd contact the appraisal company for the original document, their contact info. is clearly visible in the pic! Takes all kinds!

Now he rwesponds with this even AFTER I show him the photos:

"Birds exact. Stripes exact. Rear end and tail lights are exact, 
eveything is exact except for the car they filmed burt in has not cb 
wire and leather seats, the cars they used for stunts have cloth seats 
and magnet mounted cb. Just felt like correcting you. And also read 
the appraisal from a classic car apprasier which is notarized, is he 
wrong to.. Haha, please do your research and if you don't want the car 
then dont send me anything. Good day to you sir"


And then this:

"Like I said, that's burts car,not one of the stunt cars, they are all 
different if you actually watch the movie. Just like burts car has 
leather and the ones used in stunts have cloth. Call Pontiac historic 
services and research the vin. And if your not buying it dont you have 
anything else to do? Must be a pretty boring exsitence sitting on ebay 
all day sweating people. So let me get this straight, I'm lying, 
Pontiac historic services are lying, the sales reciept with vin is 
lying and a classic car apprasier who went thru Pontiac is lying. Get 
a life"


Rick, you are right, I am done with this idiot.  I say we go on there and bid thecrap out of it to over $100,000.  See what he does then.

That appraisal isn't notarized.   He has an embossed stamp that says "certified appraisal".  A notary will notarize a signature validating that the person signing the document.....is the person signing the document.

That's exactly correct -- the notary doesn't certify or represent in any way that what is on the paper is true or accurate.  I could write up a story about my car being one of one 455 SDs made in 1975, but the engine blew up and I wasn't able to save any of the pieces, but my car is still worth $165,000 because it's one of one -- and have it notarized.  All the notary would be doing is verifying my ID as the person who signed the paper upon which the story is printed. :-\ ;)
