Anyone here ever bought a car off eBay?

Browsing eBay, I came to realize that a helluva lot of people buy cars off there (including my brother).

Anybody have any horror stories to share of purchases gone wrong?

My co-worker has. He bought a 1960ish mustang and had it shipped from California to Minnesota. As far as I know...everything went fine.

My Dad bought a Catera. Me and my brother flew out to Arizona and drove it back to Illinois.

It was GREAT.
