    Wait.....Goodwill sells stuff on eBay? I thought it was to benifit the community!

    Heads up, kits at Goodwill
    Just a heads up to anyone near the Northfield Village Ohio Goodwill outlet store.  I dropped off a few boxes of car kits totaling about 125 kits. Needed to clear the garage before the wife threw them out! LOL! It's ok, still have a huge stash! They range from 1930's classics to recent drag rails. Not sure when they will set them out for sale, since I donated them Saturday. Happy hunting!

    I could be wrong but it looks like you would have to roll the windows down  to be able to open the doors!

    Yea, I get these too. I don't visit adult sites so why these other ones show up seems odd! The ad banner has a feedback option that allows you to report the ad as repetitive, inappropriate, or irrelevant. Yet no matter if I tag it inappropriate it will still pop up the same ad in a different thread on this forum. Very annoying! Gonna try the ad blocker like Ace suggested and have my wife model some Victoria Secret for me while I'm at it.... Andy!

    Thanks. I'm running Firefox on my laptop will try your advice.  My iPhone doesn't get this junk.

    Ad Banners
    I get that these ad banners generate revenue and aren't going anywhere anytime soon, but how do I keep these ads for Asian, Middle eastern or what ever girls dating sites from popping up?! I mark them as "inappropriate" yet they still show up! WTF! I don't get these ads anywhere else!

    This is a fantastic idea! Encourage young kids to get involved in the hobby with contemporary car subjects they recognize. After all, 40's, 50's and 60's cars were all over the place when us old fogies were kids but are for the most part, foreign to youngsters today. Give them something familiar easy to build and play with to keep the hobby alive!

  11. JohnU added a post in a topic It doesn't make any sense   

    Accually, I was joking!
    At least they're serving a purpose as advertising rather than being crushed as cash for clunkers!
    Even if I could afford and had the room to "save" these cars, I wouldn't have time or live long enough to restore them anyway!
    Kinda like the model stash I have!

    The two hobby shops near me cater mostly to R/C or railroad. One is run by and old guy that doesn't want to be there and the other by some obnoxious long-haired hipster "know-it-all" inerested in pushing the expensive train and R/C stuff and could care less about selling model cars. You might get his attention if you're interested in armor kits though.

    I won't waste the trip only to be ignored and will continue to shop online. Kind of hard to feel sorry for closing HS that provide little or no customer service!! Don't have to kiss my foot just be pleasant, get off your "stool" and be glad to have business!

    Yeah, a guy at work tried to lay this BS on me too till I showed him the truth on Snopes. People really need to be careful of some of the propaganda nonsense that gets passed arround in email chain letters!

    Craigs List. Advertise at $2.00 to $3.00 a kit. Someone will bite at the whole lot. That's how I got my stash! LOL!
