Somewhat of an apples/oranges comparison given the engines and suspensions, but many think dealing with the M189 and air suspension to not be worth it.

Maybe?

I'm guessing he is trying to make it look like the car is worth more. Or perhaps he really wants that engine for something. If he let the previous auction end around $8000, effectively agreeing to a contract to sell the car for only about $8000, but when he tosses the engine in he won't let the auction end much under $25,000.... There must be something with that engine that makes it not worth him selling the car cheap.

The engine is also available in a separate listing of his for $10,000 or best offer... The guy is to be avoided.
