I had been hesitant to get involved in this discussion. But here is my 
experience. Last fall I moved to a new apt and found out that I would 
have to use the Midget as a daily driver. I needed 2 things in the worst 
way to make sure I had a reliable car. 1) a new tranny (mine's synchros 
are going - going - gone) 2) A good set of wheels. I bought both from 
list members. The tranny showed up in reasonable time and condition. 
Thank you very much! I still need to rebuild it, but I knew that when I 
bought it. 
The wheels I got fom a lister on the westcoast of Canada. I sent a couple 
of checks (split the total so I wouldn't break myself at the holidays). 
As well as expensive shipping charges.  They arrived at my home while on 
my self imposed exile at the end of Feb. I got home and to much 
anticipation opened the boxes only to find that three of the wheels had 
buggered up hubs. (and they are Spit wheels - which will not fit a Midget 
- but that is irrelevant to this discussion). I emailed the party in 
question and received an immediate response that he was out of town and I 
could expect a reply on Wed. That was on March 6. (and most of you also 
know what happened to me on that day). I have been too wrapped in other 
details of my life to get too concerned. Well I hadn't heard anything so 
after I got back from Carlisle, with a new set of wheels, I sent another 
email asking what was up and could I get my money back or whatever we 
could do to make this right. I still have yet to hear back from them. I 
am a little hesitant to "out" them on this list until I get a reply. But 
if I do not hear soon I will let all know whom this is and go from there.

Thanks for listening.

PS I am Blind copying (BCC) this to the party in question. I added this 
note to let them know I have not added their email address to the general
