MiFbody.com Marketplace Rules

The MiFBody Marketplace is a great place to get a good or great deal on many items.

We provide these classified forums free of charge and offer no-fee sales to our members as a benefit of MiFBody. We have some common-sense rules outlined below that we expect everyone to follow.

New MiFBody members may not be able to create for sale posts in the marketplace forums until you have met a certain criteria with minimum posts and time as a member on MiFBody.

Anyone who does not comply with these rules will be warned and possibly banned from the classifieds or from MiFBody. For your safety and the safety of others, please comply with the Marketplace rules and read the buyers advice at the end of this post. If you see anything suspicious or have a questionable sale sent to you via PM, please push the report a post button or contact the MiFBody Staff.

Any member who receives negative feedback from a transaction may have their classified forum access removed without notice depending on severity of the dispute.

MiFBody assumes no ownership or risk in your purchases in the Marketplace - the transaction is between you and the seller. Both buyers and sellers should post feedback after your transaction is completed using the iTrader Feedback mechanism.

Rules for Sellers:
  1. You must post both a detailed description and an asking price.
  2. No spamming multiple classifieds forums with your for sale items. This means pick one and only one classified forum to post your for sale item in.
  3. No bulk or volume sales are allowed in these forums. If you acquire items in quantity (bulk sales mean >1 item) with the intent of offering them for resale here, you are considered a dealer under this rule. Please contact us for paid advertising options.
    • Some specific items have caused recurring volume sales issues. As such, and at the discretion of the MiFbody.com staff:
      • No more than one full car partout per member (see additional partout rules below) in a 6 month rolling period.
      • No more than one car listing per member in a 6 month rolling period without MiFBody Staff approval


  4. Non approved vendors, dealers or service providers of any kind may NOT post either individual or group buy items for sale here without the Administrator's approval. MiFBody approved vendor sponsors should post in their respective Vendor Marketplace forum.
  5. No multi-level marketing schemes. Posting links that guide our members to any type of scheme that benefits a single member are not allowed. Peddle your free iPod somewhere else.
  6. "Bumping” rules: Do not "bump" or "TTT" your post more than once per day.
  7. Prohibited Sale Items on MiFBody are any of the following items:
    • A) No bootlegged software sales. Anyone who knowingly buys or sells bootlegged (Warez) software or music through this forum will be permanently banned. This includes copies of navigation DVDs. Also, you may not sell Academic or NFR (not for resale / not for retail or OEM distribution) software.

    • B) No alcohol, tobacco, firearm, or any weapons sales.

    • C) No Pornographic (XXX) item sales.

    • D) No gift card sales.

  8. No 'testing the waters' or 'possibly for sale' posts. Either you're selling the item or you're not. If you're not sure, don't post it here until you are ready. Please do your research on your asking price before posting the item for sale.
  9. No price gouging! While we don't expect items to be given away for free on our forum, the reason we have these classifieds is to help each other out. If you are lucky enough to have a 'new hot item' (example: Xbox 360 or PS/3 when first released) enjoy it. If you want to make a big profit off your fellow member, take it to eBay or to craigslist and more power to you. We aren't going to enable your lust for profit by letting you post extremely overpriced items here on MiFBody. This rule is enacted at classified MiFBody Staff and administrator's discretion.



Rules for Shoppers and Marketplace Browsers:
  1. No thread crapping. If you aren't interested in the item listed and asking a question about it in pursuit of a purchase decision, then don't post. It is poor etiquette (and not allowed) to post a "I have one to sell too!" message for a similar item you're selling in another member's thread or to link some random unknown person's listing selling the same thing on eBay slightly cheaper.
  2. No "Dibs"; calling dibs means absolutely nothing. Who gets the item is the seller's discretion. They can reject low offers or even at-asking-price offers based on a number of parameters including first person to send funds, prior experience with buyer, local buyers, etc.
  3. If you're going to make an obvious lowball offer, use private messaging (PM).
  4. No excessive bumping of other member's sales items.


Car Part Outs:

  • ONLY authorized vendors can part out multiple cars here.
  • Part outs should be posted in the appropriate "Parts For Sale" forum, not vehicles classifieds.
  • Multiple vehicle part-outs are not allowed.... it's a one time event meant for a vehicle that is disabled due to accident or one you've bought to use major pieces on your own car and are selling the rest. Buying a car specifically to part it out here is reserved for the paying vendors.
  • Planning on buying a parts car and taking future orders to sell parts of it? Absolutely not allowed. If you can't support the purchase of the parts car for without the forum support, don't buy it or plan on pre-selling parts here.


Vehicles For Sale:

  1. Vehicles may be offered for sale by all members, but no dealer posts are allowed unless they have completed the Sponsor process.
  2. Only active MiFBody members with >5 posts may post non-vehicles.
  3. Please post the location of the vehicle being sold in the description.


Advice for Buyers: Caveat Emptor

Please be cautious and use your common sense when buying something expensive from someone you don't know here on MiFBody. If something' seems too good to be true, question extensively before you buy.

Here are some easy-to-do tips that can at least help mitigate some of the risk. If you are personally uncomfortable asking for these items, we suggest you 'blame it on the rules' below to make it a safer transaction for all concerned:

  1. Ask for detailed pictures and condition description to be posted if not provided. Get full size, well lit images of the items and close ups of any blemishes to review before buying.
  2. Search on posts by sellers to see what they've bought/sold in the past. Were there any issues other people posted about? IE: PM someone who bought something big from them in the past to see if it turned out OK.
  3. Do some research on the seller. IE: Have they been a member on MiFBody long? Do they just sell stuff or do they really participate (so that people might know them better)? Did they post about having problems with the item they're now selling?
  4. Request contact information from the seller and test them where possible (get name, phone #s, physical and email addresses) to make sure they work as a way to get in touch with them.
  5. Document your transaction publicly on the forum. If a seller insists on communicating only via PM or email be suspicious. If the seller does not post a 'item sold' once you've sent payment, we suggest that the buyer proactively post something like 'payment sent' on the forum so that if the seller has intentions of promising the item to multiple buyers and running off with their money that other buyers are alerted earlier. We suggest you 'quote' the original post of the seller so that their comments are captured and cannot be edited once sold to you.


These rules are subject to change at any given time. It is your responsibility to ensure you're following the rules before posting in the Marketplace Forums.

                  Most of the junk yards around my area, crush 3rd gens as soon as they come thru the gate, and they really don't have any 4th gens, this is total BS.

                    I spent an entire day looking for a good junkyard. Every one I went to they said that as soon as they get a fbody, people flock over to take parts and almost always the engine is first to go. plenty of stangs though lol. I'm still looking for a good place

                      Junkyards are all hit or miss, but anyone need 4th gen parts? Ryans Junkyard on northend in Ferndale has MANY 4th gens. I was there the other day for some interior pieces and they have quite a selection of 4th gens.

                        888-437-5490

                        Both Lansing places are just south of I-96 (Shroyer's is at the M-99 exit, Schram's is at the S. Cedar exit), so both are pretty convenient for both sides of the state. It looks like Shroyer's currently has three 4th Gen cars in stock.

                          I didnt notice any verts or look under the hoods of any one of them. I did see 3-4 4th gen camaros, 2 4th gen bird and a 3rd gen bird tho. They had some ads on CL a few days ago too with a little more information on them. They usually have 1 or 2 F-Bodies in the yard tho.
