Thanks guys.

 

Tom, right now I have a Moebius '56 Chrysler on the bench.  I'll have a workbench thread up in a day or so.

John that is looking great.  I'm sure you'll make some good Brownie Points with the Boss for this.

 

BTW, have a very Merry Christmas, and hug Amy for me.

In Topic: Blocking Ebay Sellers's Listings Who Are Overpriced? Or is it Greedbay?

Yesterday, 08:54 AM

I look for promos, builtups or kits of 1950's cars on EBAY that are in pretty much perfect shape, with no warping, good glass, interiors and decent chrome.  Over the past 2 years I've been extremely lucky in finding pretty much everything that I've wanted for VERY reasonable, if not CHEAP prices.  It just takes patience and persistence to scroll through the listings of particular searched items to find the right one.  I, personally, don't mind doing that pretty much daily, as you never know what might come up as a "New Listing".  I'm retired so I have lots of free time and it doesn't take a lot of time to do my searches.

 

There is one Seller who always has GREAT looking promos, and in fact I believe he specializes in promos, without mentioning who it is.  The problem that I have with this Seller is that, IMHO, his prices are absurdly high based on WHAT I AM WILLING TO SPEND.  If I had deep pockets I would snap up a bunch of his "offerings", but I don't, so I won't.  I'll still scroll through all the listings for a particular car I'm looking for, including his, but I just laugh at his "Buy It Now" prices and move on.  I know that I will eventually find what I'm looking for and at a price that I'm willing to pay.
