here you go guys http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Ford-Mus ... 3f133e1952
my only question is? Is this for real or someone is trying to scam selling a replica on ebay again?

Hmm, interesting.
I took a look at it, but as you said:

Yeah I thought so because i own a mustang red and not even a GT or anything just a plane coupe 2005. heck my car alone cost me 11k and still paying it off. There's no way you can build a replica car that cheap as the parts alone gosh lets see.
This is not including the SVT hood witch is nearly $1,800 but you can buy cheap super snake hoods about $300 now on ebay every now and then.

W706805-S902, 6, Screw, 1.72ea (existing parts may be reused)

Here's my resent research on parts and prices. Excluding some interior parts.
such as the interior door with the silver door handle and the red leather door seal cost about $300 a piece at ford.

MUSTANG FORD INTERIOR LED AMBIENT LIGHTING KIT 2005-2009
Part Number: ILK1
Ford Part Number: 8L8Z-13E700-AA at about $280
gt 500kr head rest $300
the leather black red seats $1800 and need a pin number or lucky to buy off of ebay etc. I almost had the back seats for $200 on ebay but the guy dont sell to hawaii :/.

Last but not least the alcoa super snake rims hard to find since they discontinued but places will only sell it as a set for about $5,000 from what I saw in recent research. this is not including the svt caps witch range from 180 or so on ebay last i saw. so Yeah seeing that car for $18,000. I can't believe it as the project of that car if done properly will cost way over 20k for me alone O.o. Gosh I hope to find a GT car I can trade up too thats painted black or afford the only shelby gt500 2008 car in hawaii witch is selling for 34k at moment.
(Note) allot of the part prices I do research on every so many months so prices may change due to rarity or to much stock in hand.)

Hey guys,

Since news threads aren’t flagged up in the active topics, I’ve moved this to the general section. :good:

Matt
Welcome aboard the Knight 2000.

Thank you. What's all this, it looks like Darth Vader's bathroom?

Yeah, it's not my orb.
It's the template I made, but not my Orb program or animations.
He got a misguided customer of mine to send him a copy of my Orb faceplate. (But my customer wouldn't make a copy of my KI3T A.I.)
I contacted him months ago with a lawsuit about the Ebay listing because it was my faceplate design so I thought he had a copied an Orb I sold to a customer. But I saw things that didn't seem right when he showed me a video or the orb 'working', so I dropped litigation. (It wasn't the program I use, I could tell.)

He actually was trying to buy an Orb from me for the longest. But I did some research on Darrin and found out that Scam artist was a word most used when describing him.

Thank god I never sold him anything. (This is why I choose who ends up with my products VERY carefully. I ONLY sell to those I trust.)

The 'Orb' is laughable. I think I still might have a copy of the video he set me. It's really rather funny. If I find it tonight I will post it. It goes black a lot.

But yeah, avoid this guy like the plague.

Research his name in google to get an idea. :roll:

Yeah; I figured it was the same scammer from awhile back. Right now with my kitt project going slow I finally decided to try find me a black v8 gt mustang to trade in with mine and adding more to my monthly payments. Unfortunately I can't find one in Oahu at moment. But hey if I had 14k on me right now I'd so get this shelby gt 500 http://www.cars.com/go/search/detail.jsp?tracktype=usedcc&csDlId=&csDgId=&listingId=82714681&listingRecNum=1&criteria=sf1Dir%3DDESC%26mkId%3D20015%26stkTyp%3DU%26mdId%3D21712%26rd%3D250%26crSrtFlds%3DstkTypId-feedSegId-mkId-mdId%26zc%3D96701%26rn%3D0%26PMmt%3D1-1-0%26stkTypId%3D28881%26sf2Dir%3DASC%26sf1Nm%3Dprice%26sf2Nm%3Dmiles%26isDealerGrouping%3Dfalse%26rpp%3D50%26feedSegId%3D28705&aff=national&listType=1
This be the only one for sale down here besides a convertible version witch really sucks at the moment :/. I hope my current job does well enough for me to save that cash fast; so, I may get this car. as this car been out for sale for almost a year now. Or if anything buying a black Good shape GT mustang witch is hard to come by down here.
most are nearly 120k miles on them and beaten up interior and exterior and people still asking for 14k to 24k for them; even if it's not worth that much.
