I came so close to winning a 1986 Mazda Rx-7 Engine for just $75!!!!!!
I held back because I didn't know how much shipping would be for a ~230 pound hunk of steel and iron. I found out that it would cost over $500 for FedEx, and UPS and USPS didn't accept anything that heavy.
He said he'd deliver it within 200 miles (which I am within) for a fee, so I sent him a message asking him how large his fee would be.
I never got a response. [bawling]
Granted I did wait till the last minute to ask :/ Anyways, you may be wondering why I would buy such an engine. Why what other reason other than to power a golf cart! No, I'm serious.
At my work we have some broken golf carts, and I was going to buy one so that I could put a ultra high RPM racing engine in it :P
I didn't have enough cart space to put in a transmission, so I was going to use a fixed chain or belt drive in it to directly power the back axel instead.
I don't know if I would actually get up the nerve to do this, but hey, a fast and light engine for $75 -- think of the possibilities.
