Last year, I got fucked out of a grand by Outlaw Motorsports in Dallas. A few weeks ago, I sent Jake (the former owner) this email: Hello Jake. How's it been going? Haven't heard from you in a while, oh, it must've been when you screwed me out of a grand. No hard feelings about that, right? Right, Jake? I'm dealing with Phillip at Intercrew now...He's a really great guy. He said he's heard of you before. Too bad your shop didn't make it, huh Jake? I got my four-door running. All by myself too! And I didn't even use the wrong harness you gave me, or the Ls intake manifold you gave me, or the 99 EX ecu that you gave me. I put an ITR tranny on it and it ran a 14.80 on street tires. On street tires, Jake! Then I rolled it 3 times doing 150 down a back road and totaled it. Now I've got an 89 hatchback with a b20/vtec in it. Pretty cool, eh, Jake? Phillip is boring out my block as we speak. Great stuff, huh! It should put down around 240 to the wheels, tuned with Hondata. Great stuff, eh, Jake?!? Well, I just thought I'd say hi. Like I said, no hard feelings about you screwing me out of $1000 that I had to sell almost everything that I owned to get, right? Right, Jake? I still have my receipt that you wrote me up for the B16A2 head and the wiring, that shows that I paid $500. I've also got my receipt from Junior, the landlord, that shows that I had to pay him another $500 to get my still-not-running car back from him. How about that? Gee, that'd make for a great lawsuit, wouldn't it Jake? Too bad I don't know any good lawyers...BUT WAIT! My DAD happens to be a lawyer! My very own father! I'm sure he'd be THRILLED about all this, don't you think, Jake? Man, but I'd need witnesses in court, huh... Oh yeah, by the way, I've been in contact with the guy that bought your CRX. He's not very happy, either, Jake. In fact, he wants to break both of your arms. I think thats kind of harsh. Let me put it this way for you, Jake. If I don't receive either an email or a phone call within the year, I'm pressing charges. My number is (936)465-3629. But you remembered that, right? -Wil Today, I got this response from him: Will, It's Jake,first let me say I am sorry to hear that you feel I did you wrong somehow.I never wanted you to feel this way,I know you purchased some parts from my shop I do not remember the exact circumnstances involved at the moment.I remember you purchased an engine which you attempted to put in yourself.I do not want you to feel I did you wrong and this is why I am emailing.I no longer have a computer so it is not very often I check my email,this is why it has taken me till today to get back with you.I am sorry you wrecked your car,that is unfortunate.My business went backrupt and I have been struggling ever since.I do not know what charges you could or would want to press against me.It is good you have a fast car,I had to sell all of my vehicles .I am glad you met Phillip he does SOME people alright.Well I do not know what you want to hear or do so go ahead and respond.PLease explain exactly what you think I did or did not do and I will be glad to discuss this further with you. Thanks, Jacob Advice, anyone?
