kinda pricey dontcha think?

shill bidding at it's best. No doubt the seller did not want to accept 60 bucks for a part that cost more to make. So... he gets his buddy to bid it up so that it won't sell. Still, he has to pay ebay that final value fee.

Here I was ready to make some flippant remark about "rare" originals and discerning e-bays.... only its a new reproduction. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif

I think I'm in the wrong business.... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/yesnod.gif

For that price I'd throw in free shipping; personal delivery, even /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

I think I've bought from this seller a while back - don't ever recall quite that markup on an item so my guess is that he made some kind of typo. Or maybe he forgot to mention that he has a rebuilder TR3 attached to the bracket that will be included as well..

does a perfect car come with it???

Major typo, bidding went from $60.00 then $6,200.00. It ended at $6,300.00! The seller is prob. passed out on the floor thinking he struck gold.

The winning bidder withdrew two earlier bids of $7571.00 and $7051.00. Obviously this guy does not know where the decimal key is! But that does not explain the second place bidder? Maybe Ebay had a problem???

definately a typo or rather a typo and a prankster

What interests me is the wrinkle paint powder coat. I ordered some yesterday and will try some experiments with it.
