Today's ebay funny


Recommended Posts

He does sell a ton of stuff, he isn't alone in what most of us call HIGH PRICES. There is a Buick guy that advertises on Ebay a lot, and his prices are very high too, but it just takes ONE buyer to really WANT/NEED the item, then it's SOLD. l bought a 1942 front Buick bumper lic plate cross bar on Ebay for $20.00, he has two for sale, over $200.00 each, and no takers for months.

There is a fellow that for months if not a couple years advertised a 41 Buick grill center piece, it's in DRIVER condition, he says it is a very rare part, it ISN'T. often three or four are listed, but he is just waiting on that one buyer.

Oh, well, each to his own.

The high price sellers are trolling for the guys doing restorations as a business. If a professional restoration shop only needs a few parts to finish a customer's car they'll pay the high price just to get the part. To a shop time is money, they don't have the time like an amateur restorer who can wait a year or longer to find that one part at the right price. Also, the customer isn't going to want to wait and have his prize possession sitting in a restoration shop while show seasons come and go. Let's face it, if you can afford to have a professional restoration shop do your car a few hundred bucks isn't going to matter all that much.
