Default GHETTO AUCTIONS

I thought I'd add some fun around here and start this thread. I often cruise eBay to look at what sort of RC stuff people auction; what they're selling, how they list it, the photos they use and how much they want. I often get a kick out of some people and what they list. Some use pictures of the car so dirty, you'd think it was a mound of mud. Let's post some eBay links of RC auctions that make you say 'WTF?!" Here's one...

What's really funnny is how many times he states FREE SHIPPING INSIDE THE US in the action. At the end it states $25 witihin the United States. It's free shipping, but there's nominal $25 fee

yeah, I often laugh, well feel sorry, when european auctions say they will send worldwide, so it appears at ebay.com.

With the exchange rate at the moment, their used price can be double the new price from the LHS!!
