It has come to my attention that the classifieds are being abused by a few members posting eBay links. And or using this forum only for personal gain, using the classifieds and contributing nothing else to ffcars.com. ( Majority of posts in the classifieds.)

Please EVERYONE refresh yourselves by reading The Bill of Rights linked below.

Please read the following quote from http://www.ffcars.com/FAQ/billofrights.html

Forum members are welcome to use the Classifieds to sell a parts purchased for their own personal use. Anything else is considered to be a commercial sale. No links or reference to eBay sales, please. If the sale is appropriate for the Forum, post it on the Forum, rather than linking to it elsewhere.
We don't allow people to post anything related to charity, raffles, asking for donations, etc. without the written permission of the administrators. If you post anything related to a raffle, charity, etc. you can be banned without notice.
COMMENT: To be fair to all businesses, we require an ad to be purchased before trying to do business on the site. It would not be fair to allow an individual or business the opportunity to sell products to our members for free, when we have vendors who are trying to make a living supporting this industry and is showing their support by purchasing a banner ad. Our ads are far below the Internet average. We charge less that a penny for every ten ads that appear, or $1.30 per 1,000 (CPM). The industry average is over $16 per CPM. So if a business is legitimate, it should be able to afford an ad.
Lately we have had a lot of people just selling parts on our site. These members don't participate in the forum discussions and add no valve to the site. They need to use eBay or pay for a banner ad on our site. Our prices are much cheaper than eBay and we don't charge for each sale or each listing. Don't abuse the free classifieds and ruin it for the participating members.
*General usage etiquette. When replying to a part for sale by stating "PM sent." Please specify what part the seller listed as to what you are sending the PM on. Example, " PM sent on throttle cable."

This keeps everyone from PM'ing for the same part and not knowing it. It also keeps a relative order of who wants what.




Thank You,

* Describing Parts*

When giving a description of parts being sold please include a description of any defects with the part.

Ive seen new in the box camshafts with pitting. Seller knows it but otherwise does not disclose it. Or even takes a picture not showing damaged area. Nobody wants a pitted camshaft,crankshaft or any other machined part that is only good for a boat anchor.

*Parts dented, paint chipped etc but otherwise serviceable.

Again, full disclosure. Don't take pictures of the good parts or good side of the part. Take pictures of both good, bad and let the buyer decide.

~Dirty dealers will will be dealt with accordingly.
