if the guy is located in angola Indiana, yes he is a scammer. I bought a "original" wood grain steering wheel from him. It was a clear re pop luckily at the time I lived about an hour away and after him saying he was busy very time I contacted him , I drove out there on a whim and told him I had the wheel and was ready to get my money back. I told him the wheel looked to good. I got my money back, but while I was there you could see he had newly casted water necks he was selling on ebay as NOS, and on his feedback he had sold like 10 396 375 horse "original" intake manifolds. Back then I did a internet search on his name, and my search turned up a lawsuit a guy had against him for fraud regarding a cross ram intake.
