Anything under $5k is essentially of no interest to anyone, as it's  
below the federal limit.

If it was via the marketplace here, please post the name+email, or at  
least send it to me or Mark Chang.

BTW- Robert Postupak apparently makes the rounds via various  
enthusiast groups.  A number of listers got ripped off by him, and  
just a few weeks ago, someone posted to the 200q20v list saying they  
found his name after trying to buy some Saab parts from him.
