This particular one was an eBay purchase. Just happened to luck out on an auction that was literally ending on Christmas day so I just placed a bid and no one tried sniping me.
Took a pretty huge risk, admittedly. All I had to go on were the seller's word, high res pictures, clean vehicle history, and the eBay buyer protection. I figured if I flew down and it was a disaster (WA to CA) I would just be out taxi fare and a round trip flight.
