I have been watching E bay lately and some of the bids cant be believed. Right now there is a stripped 66 glove box door, I mean stripped No latch, no hinge, no nothing, going so far for $45. The other thing is NOS parts, 66 drain hole covers, like on the rear quarter panels going for $20.50 a pair. I think I will sell the ones I have. And by the way how could a NOS 66 4 speed gear shift knob go for $208?

I have made so much money selling my old parts on e-bay. I always put a reasonable starting price, and people bid them way up. Once sold a used seat cover for $35. Starting bid was 5 bucks, and I hoped I'd get somewhere between 5 and 10 dollars. Many other stories just like that as well....

Well all is fair on ebay <G> ... some ppl get caught up in bidding, and I've had this happen to me as well .. your looking at a $50 bid on a $250 item, and soon the bids keep going up and your thinking "well its only $35 over my last bid .. no big deal ... and on and on, each time just a little extra ... before long you pay $208 for a shifter knob and wonder wtf happened?

This is why I max my bid at 75% the cost of a new item (where applicable) since anything more and I may as well just get the new item with warranty ..

If you have ever been to a real life auction it is pretty easy to see how some folks get caught up in it. Some regulars don't even advertise in the classified section of VMF anymore cause they can make more money on E-bay.
