Classified Rules, READ BEFORE POSTING! - Updated 7.24.2012

FYI: If you do not heed the rules below, you will get an infraction! This is to keep track of repeat offenders!

Effective 24 July, 2012, the classifieds will institute a strict policy when it comes to posting non-
relevant posts in someone's thread. Do it once, you receive a warning, a second time gets you an
infraction. Multiple infractions result in being automatically banned.

We have received many complaints about clutter in the classifieds. People are tired of reading through
a bunch a useless banter and chatting. The classifieds are not a place for talking back and forth, they
are there for people to sell their items or to find an item, period. If you want to "chat" about an item, take it to PM's.

FYI: If you do not heed the rules below, you will get a ONE warning and then an infraction! This is
to keep track of repeat offenders!

Anything "wanted to buy" MUST be labeled with "WTB".

Keep replies on topic of items sold/wanted. Off topic posts will be deleted and the person, warned.
Off topic.. If I were closer, I'd buy it; GLWS; If you decide to ship it, I want it; If you decide to part
it, let me know, I've seen this car in person...etc. If you want the seller to ship, take it to PM's and the same goes for a part out

Post nonsense and you will get ONE warning, do it again, an infraction will be forthcoming. Remember, infractions can result in being banned.

After an agreement has been made: all shipping talk should be via PM as well. You may post that you
will, for example, ship via USPS in your original post. If the buyer would like UPS... that goes in a PM, not in the thread.

You may ask: Will this fit my SE?; Is that a broken tab?; How many miles?. Legitimate questions! The seller may answer
those questions. We don't need 5 people answering the question.

Do NOT post negative comments about an item. If somebody wants $20k from a Contour,
let them try. These comments will be deleted. Take it to PMs please! Users that do not follow these
rules will get ONE warning before an infraction is given.

You must be registered for 60 days to post in the classifieds. This isn't anything that a moderator
or Administrator can over-ride, so don't bother asking (see bottom).

Please keep non-Contour parts in the "Misc" section.

If you have multiple items for sale, please divide them up in the correct forums.

Do not cross post your item in multiple areas. Cross posts will be deleted and the user
will receive an infraction.

Bumping is getting out of hand!! Therefore if you bump before the two week period (14 days,) the bump will be deleted, and you will get a warning.
Do it a second time, your thread will be deleted and you will get an infraction.
Information updates, price changes, etc. are allowed.
*Information updates/price changes DO NOT include: "still have this", "Price is the same, not
lowering it".
*What they DO include: Information.. I dropped the headlight and it now has a broken tab. If you have multiple
items, for example: 4 IMRC covers... you may post that you now have 3 left.
*Price dropped from $125. to $100.

If you aren't going any lower on the price, say so by updating your original post. Stating in a new post that
you won't lower the price is not a reason to bump your thread.
After two weeks, you may post "Bump" to bump your item back to the top. There is no need for nonsense to be posted
during a bump. Remember, Two Weeks = 14 DAYS.

***Any transactions you complete here are at your own risk. CEG is in no way responsible.***

You must notify a mod, either through a post or PM, if your item is sold/found so we may lock
the thread. This helps everyone know what items are no longer available. A thread will be locked only
by request of the original poster. Random requests to lock a thread because you "have money in hand" will be ignored.
"To the top" posts do not count as being active.

From now on, classified ads need to include a price, location, and need to be actual FS or WTB
ads, not "feelers" or attempts at auctions. If you do not have a proper (i.e. city and state) location in
your profile, you must add it to every classifieds post you make. Prices need to be reasonable; don't
put down $1 million to meet the rule.

You may only post eBay auctions if they are YOURS and list price, location, etc. Posting just a link
to the auction will be deleted. This also applies to Craigslist ads, etc. Do not post "in case anyone was
looking for" eBay/CL auctions/ads. Those posts will be deleted.

** If you see a problem with a post or person, notify a mod either through the "notify mod" button
or send a quick PM.

Any threads that do not follow all the above rules will be deleted. If your thread is deleted, do not
start another one unless you include the required information and are willing to adhere to the rules.

The forum has been having problems allowing certain users to post once they reach 60 days. If you
can't post, try clearing your cookies. If that doesn't work, PM one of the classifieds mods

  • FS: For Sale 98 Contour SVT Black/MNB

    The sad time has come for my baby to find a new home. I am leaving for basic training within the next few months and have decided to give her to a new owner.

    It does have a salvage title due to a previous owner hitting a deer. I have no understanding of why it was considered totalled because all it did was mess up the front bumper paint and loosen it up a bit.

    It is leaking antifreeze slowly but surely and I am not sure of the source of the problem..

    -I swapped clusters at 68335 miles due to the fuel gauge not working. I bought a cluster from OB1 which read 164xxx when I received it. It now reads 180xxx miles. You do the math.
    -It has the typical 3rd gear grind under hard shifts. And the occasional "slip/pop" out of 1st gear. It has only been doing so for about 3 months now.
    -Numerous water pumps have been put into this car, which I guess is normal for this engine? I have put in 3 I believe.
    -Tires are decent. I'll say 50% on the front and 40% or so on the rear. Not any super expensive performance tires. Also has new brake pads front and rear about 5,000 miles ago
    -Does need rear struts! And possibly new rotors.
    -Has a KKM intake on it with a new air filter about 8,000 miles ago.
    -Has a fairly new belt tensioner as well as harmonic balancer. About 10,000 miles.
    -CEL is on. Put a tester on it and it came up as oxygen sensors.
    -Has been in Wisconsin most of it's life which means it has rust. Not much at all. Just under the rear wheel wells and the bottom of the doors which is hardly even noticable. It has seen some winters.
    -Aftermarket Kenwood cd player with Kicker speakers in the front doors and Sony speakers in the rear. Will sell with the car at additional cost.
    -No jack point covers.
    -Windows are tinted on the driver and passenger sides in front and back. 5% on all 4. Expensive tint.
    -The paint isn't in horrible condition but it definitely is not perfect. Especially on the front bumper. Does have mesh on front bumper, not the rear.
    -Interior is in good condition. I have always taken great care of the inside. Leather is immaculate. Driver side floor mat has some wear.

    I am looking at 1300 or best offer. This car is located in northern Wisconsin. 54821... PM or text 715-413-1140. NO CALLING

    Sorry for my lack of pictures at the time. When I have a chance to get an actual camera I will take pictures of the interior and the flaws. These are just some pics I had on my phone..

    For the record, I could sell this car at any point I choose. I don't want to because I know it won't get taken care of whatsoever. Some punk kid wants to buy it and I really don't want him to have it. I want someone on CEG to have this car. Help me out here. It's now on Craigslist...
