I'm done with Corvette Central

I bought a TB spacer from them on the popular auction site.
The listed the Item as "new". In the picture you can plainly see a gasket.
This is the description
"1985 91 C4 Corvette Helix power tower throttle body spacer. * Adds 11 horsepower * *Increases torque 2 ft./lbs. * *Boosts air flow by 40 CFM. High flow throttle body air foil reshapes the air as it enters the intake plenum to produce more torque and horsepower, It adds higher usable RPM and yields 11 HP at 4750 RPM. The foil installs into the opening of the throttle body in less that 5 minutes with just one screw and fastener. No other modifications are required. Emission legal in all 50 states (EO #235-1). (Except 90-95 ZR1). New, but missing one gasket. "

I really didn't need a description I thought I was buying the same item I have bought 3 times in the past. I know what should be in the box. I didn't read the last 3 words.
"missing one gasket"
BTW: it's missing 2 Gaskets not one

I called and was basically told ..
"well you bought it online and it was in the description".

I didn't buy it from the internet I bought it for "Corvette Central"
A company that I have dealt with for years and I thought I could trust.
The picture was misleading and the item was listed as "new" in the New category .. well new it comes with the gasket.

When I told them I would never buy anything from them again they did not care. There are plenty of placed to buy corvette parts from I will not be treated this way.

Do you plan to go forum to forum posting this? How is it their fault that you didn't read the description? What did they do wrong? Did you pay full catalog price for it or get it at a discount?

BTW the last time I ordered from them the box was all torn up and looked like it had been sitting outside, I probably won't order from them either.

Its never been about the gaskets. I already bought them. They were just plain rude.
