God I Love Ebay!!

Check my auction out. http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI...item=593930481

I expected to get about $30 for this thing and its at $75 right now(thats like $113 CDN!). Long live capitalism!...LOL. I just hope it's not a deadbeat bidder. If he pays via paypal, I'll have enough in my account from selling parts to pay for the SHOshop y-pipe I'll be getting soon. I have a couple other auctions but they only have 1 bid each so far. SHO parts seem to do pretty well on ebay.

I've sold many parts off my 89 privately to SHO owners all over the USA. They think they are getting a good deal but with the 50% US/Canada dollar difference I get a good deal too. I just sold the DIS module off the SHO engine for $75 US! I'm really surprised that I havn't sold the engine yet though. I've advertised it in the local papers and the Saskatchewan Auto trader and I only got 1 call. If it doesn't sell in a couple months, I may just take it apart and sell the parts on ebay. I could probably get even more that way.

I frequently hit ebay and do the following three searches: Tempo, Topaz, SHO. I remember seeing your auction. Way to go on the moo-lah.

Yeah, I tried to buy a bra for my car on ebay about a month ago, and the bidding was totally out of control. It started out at like $9, I put my maximum bid in at $17, and I was the high bidder for about 5 days. Then...the day of the auction closing, the bid skyrocketed and ended up being like $35. That was a little too much for that, I think and whoever bid that much probably wasn't that bright. But hey, God bless eBay.
