                            FOR SALE Section - Policies and Disclaimer:

                                                      Revised 1/15/2015


           ** Minimum 30 posts/points required to post in this area. **

                    For Sale posts will be removed after 90 days


If your item is sold or no longer available PLEASE update the title as such so it can be removed.  


Due to considerable growth in the forum membership and use of the “free” For Sale section, it has become necessary to revise and update the For Sale section rules and policies for all users.   Please be familiar with and abide by these rules and policies in all for sale posts and dealings.  Any violation of these rules and policies are subject to the post being removed and potentially additional actions being taken according to the forum general rules and policies.


Beginning immediately any forum member that has met the 30 post/point minimum will be allowed to post a maximum of two separate “For Sale” posts in this section in any 24 hour period. Each post may contain as many individual items as the seller wants to offer as well as pictures. ( example:  One post may offer a single part for sale and another post may have a list of several parts for sale)  Any additional posts within the time frame noted will be removed.   


 Specific Rules for every post:    

*ads that do not comply with rules and guidelines are subject to removal. The Forum Moderators will not mediate disputes and reserves the right to remove any post/posts that become disruptive


Deliberate “bumping” of a for sale post may result in the post being deleted

Stating “this item is still for sale” or simply posting the word “bump” are examples of “bumping”   (legitimate information updates or revisions will not be considered bumping)   


* You MUST post your location or (if different) the location where the part is located with your ad or have your location in your profile (which shows up on the left of posts)


*You MUST post an asking price for any item you are offering for sale. Posts that simply state “make an offer” or “what’s it worth” etc. will be removed.  

NOTE:  if you need help pricing an item you may need to do some research outside the forum ( E-bay?) or contact other forum members via the PM system for help.  Posting a “what’s it worth” question in any other section on the forum presumes a pending sale offer and will no longer be allowed. Any posts will be removed.          


* Major items such as cars – complete or for parts, seller is to conduct initial business and all question and answer in the forum - Not via phone or email. We are providing an area for buyers to gain trust. If we are good enough for your free ad, and for you to make money off said free ad, we are good enough for the questions to be answered online in the sale thread.

Ads that say "I do not visit here often, call/email" or "I will only respond to email (or PM) may be subject to removal.

Once a buyer has decided to buy car/major item, then take exchange of final price or agreement, payment and address/phone offline.

However, until such an agreement is reached (someone has decided to follow through and make the purchase), discussion should remain in the thread.


*We HIGHLY suggest you not post personal phone numbers or complete email addresses in sale ads.


* No "Generic Discussion" in the sale or wanted areas.
These sale and wanted forums are here for sellers to sell, buyers to buy, and folks to find or get rid of AMC stuff.
Casual discussion has areas specifically set aside for it.
* The exception to this is if you are posting information to help members determine what is needed, what a part looks like or other helps or aids to the original buyer/seller.
* Extraneous discussion or chatter makes it harder for members to find things and use the search. It clutters the seller ads.
* If the information has value, it would get lost as ads are removed later.
Because sale and wanted posts periodically go through housecleaning processes, any valuable information related to what fits what, or what doesn't fit, cross-references and so on would get lost later.... please place that information in a safer place then refer to it in the sale/wanted.


* NO- HIJACKING  - if you don't have the minimum 30 posts/points required for posting in the sale area, then kindly wait your turn.  
If you DO have the required 30 posts/points then  please don't be lazy - start your own for sale thread.

~ Moderators, will at their discretion edit or remove posts that violate the no-hijacking rule. ~

*Disclaimer, other rules and guidelines : provides the For Sale Section as a service to its members at no cost. Although we believe the large majority of Sellers who are Forum members are honest and legitimate, it is still the Buyer's sole responsibility to ask questions, verify the Seller's identity, ascertain contact information, availability of the item listed for sale, etc. prior to entering into any sales transaction.


* Neither, the Site Administrator, nor the Moderators accepts any responsibility or liability for scams, incorrect ad information, or "deals gone bad" for any reason whatsoever. All sales transactions are at the Buyer's sole risk. strongly suggests that Buyers check the online Membership Profile listed here on the Forum when dealing with any Seller. It is strongly suggested that sales transactions which are initiated with Sellers whose membership profiles are anonymous, and contain handles, first names only or questionable email contact info be handled with caution!

Know who the Seller is, know their contact information, and validate their credibility BEFORE you send payment for the item you wish to purchase!


* In the event you believe a Seller has misrepresented themselves, or if you have been scammed or ripped off, please send a PM to one of the Moderators for follow-up. cannot provide restitution in these instances. Sellers (and Buyers) who are deadbeat should be listed in the Cheers or Jeers section as a service to all Forum members.

*** Firearms policy *** Other restricted items

*NO firearms of any kind may be listed or offered for sale on because of strict federal and state government regulations and international laws banning the sale and transfer of these items.

* NO Titles, VIN plates/numbers without the entire car. These are not legal in all locations.
~Only items legal in all 50 United States may be listed on

*, it’s Moderators and Administrators, reserve the right to reject any advertisement placed in this Section for any reason. All decisions of the Moderators/Administrators  are final and are not negotiable.
