I must be doing something wrong. Typed in "Vintage Chevrolet neon clock" in the search bar and I get everything from Pepsi signs to newly made thermometers.
How do I actually find what I am looking for without looking thru hundreds of non related junk items?

if you are searching ebay, take it from me (cause I also search for Chevrolet neon clocks) there is no good way other than looking for the high priced items (which doesnt help if its an auction that just started)

Sorry if I misunderstood the question. Didn't notice it was in eBay forum... I was referring to searching Oldgas.... EBay is tough to narrow for an item with such wide appeal as a Chevrolet clock. Good luck.

WHY? Sellers won't use it. They are Hoping for Suckers to purchase their UN-marked items.
