    Just kick a guy while he is down too:D

    Sold some "crap" on ebay last week for $1200,figured I should spend some of it.

    It is amazing the stuff that goes for alot and what goes for a little. A tranny that I paid $1100 went for $550, yet the warped and needs to be painted early bronco tailgate went for $300 (new they are $400)

    Thats because one mans junk is another mans treasure, or something. :D I never used E-Bay personally, but have looked up cars just for the hell of it to see what kind of money they are bringing in. I saw a 97 Camaro SS on there just like mine, but it was a white automatic with about 40k miles and it was going for $9500, which I thought was dirtcheap for an SS model. But then again, maybe it isnt in mint condition like mine is, the pictures looked good, but who knows unless you see it in person and listen to it run, drive it, etc. I cant see how anyone could spend thousands for a vehicle that they never saw or drove.

    If you couldn't already tell by some of the posts to ebay finds I have made...................I am an ebayer. I enjoy checking out to find stuff on there. I also sell stuff (I specialize in selling truck parts, misc. diecast, baseball cards, and yankees merchandise)

    It is a fun place to do business as long as you are careful and do not fall into the hands of a scammer.

    Yes and no. I got shorted 1k. Then I refused to give the guy title and I put a lein on the machine. To reposses it would cost a couple of thousand with a lawyer. I am trying wait until he attempts to sell it.

    This whole situation put me in a HUGE financial bind. I probably lost another 4-6k in soft money dealing with it, plus tied up DOUBLE what he paid for a couple of months. I had to fight AMEX for his deposit in JULY of this year. I won that, but man I thought I worked at the Post office for a while. You couldn't talk to me without me screaming.

    THEN, I ended up going to small claims for a car restoration fiasco that went bad. Sandblaster warped/destroyed my 76 bronco body. I ended up winning that one court (August 5) ... They have until Sept 8 to pay me the $6500 that I won in court on that one.

    I had a Bronco of around that year.

    Mine was a 1977.
    It had a 302, 3 speed on column, lock-out hubs, No power steering thou.
    Also had a 6 1/2 foot plow on it. (Meyers i think) LOL

    Sold it in 1990 for i believe $500.
    Got rid of it because the body started to fall off(doors sagged when opened) and the floor pan you could see through plus the engine leaked oil real bad.

    I still know where the parts one is that i had( in the junk yard who i gave it to)
