I post to A.A.C.F & A.A.GM regularly.
I thought I would post the sort of crud people give me when I dare to list
something on ebay. In this case a car I bought to resell. From a friend of
mine that moved out of state. here's what some idiot sent to me:
dear god man, tow her to a crusher and let her go out with some dignity.
for once she was young and pretty and now she is crying out to be set free.
let her live again as a toyota or a chinese floor jack, anything but the
horrid wreck that has become her.
I know the car is in bad shape. After All I listed it as a parts car.
It's not like you see 1959 Rambler Supers every day.
Do me a favor, look at the car and tell me if you think it's worthy of
And for those of you who think I am just trying to promote my e bay
crap. I aint. Dont none of you bid on it.
You get all types on Ebay. I listed a rust free trunk for a friend and a guy
e-mails me, "Hey your price is high. I've seen them go for 1/2 that in rust
So I asked him where all of them were located, because I would personally buy
every one and if he had "access" to all these rust free ones, why he even
needed to both with the one I had listed.
Another bozo asked me if I would sell just the emblem so I told him, "Sure, for
the opening bid (it had no reserve) and I'll throw in the trunk free of
He shut up and I never heard from him again. Sometimes a little touche shuts up
the "critics" for good. :)

I saw a 1974 Dodge Monaco on sale on ebay a few weeks back. It had
belonged to the guy's uncle since new and was in good shape. It was
black even. It had no bids on it with 4 days left. You must know what
I was thinking. This was just like the Bluesmobile on "Blues
Brothers." I sent the guy an email saying he should put "blues
brothers" in the title. It never occurred to him to do that. He had
forgotten about that film.

I think that it is a fine thing to do. Putting that car up for sale
on as a widely used as E-bay is almost sure to save another Rambler or
2 from the crusher. The interior parts, the chrome, hell even the
hubcaps are irreplacable since there are no aftermarket companies that
make these parts.

RSCamaro spilled my beer when they jumped on the table and proclaimed in
Charles, I have to agree with Ron, and everyone else that posted so far.
Plus, it's your car which means it's yours to do as you see fit. (Within
the boundaries of the law, of course... :) ) If this e-mail sender doesn't
like it, well, quite frankly, fuck him. He doesn't have to buy it or even
look at the ad.
Just hit delete when you get that kind of thing, or complain to ebay about
other users harassing you.
eBay is a global marketplace and you can and should put anything on there
you are willing to pay the listing fees for.
Somewhere in the world there is someone who is looking for a good Rambler
parts car at a reasonable price. Hopefully they will find your listing and
everyone will be happy.
In this 'net era we have to be better at letting s*** roll off our backs
than ever before.
It's all there!
Seems restorable to me, and I'm a restorer. If I had a place to do it, I'd
buy it and restore it. It would bring back old memories, because my friend
had a 60 that looked the same, in green.
Somewhere, there's someone that will thank you profusely, for not crushing a
car that will bring back memories of their younger years.
I personally thank you for not doing it, because of the memories it brought
back for me!
YES IT'S WORTH BEING LISTED.WHOEVER TELLS YOU OTHERWISE IS AN ASSHOLE.iF IT
DON'T SELL WAIT A MONTH OR TWO AND RELIST IT.THE GUY WHO FINDS ONE IN A GARAGE
AND NEEDS A REAR WINDOW OR BRAKE DRUMS OR A SHIFTER BUTTON ASSEMBLY WILL GLADLY
THANK YOU FOR DOING IT.REMEMBER......................THERES AN ASS FOR EVERY
CHAIR,IF YOU DON'T LIKE THE CHAIR THEN ANOTHER ASS WILL SIT IN IT AND BE
PERFECTLY HAPPY!!! CHARLIE
