For, those "keeping score" on the dirt bags from India (my opinion)


jackythomas99 is another one of their new identities...

And the Flying A Motor Diesel fake is now being listed by this Seller...

It looks as if People are very willing to hand over their money to these crooks... Hard to feel sorry for those too stupid to do at least a little research...

Something new with Seller "jackythomas99" though; All the bidders ID shortcuts are hidden on all of his Auctions....

Yep and this is why I think more people are heading to swap meets and less stuff is finding its way to EBAY ( quality stuff )

For probably a year there's been no Texas Company/Texaco on ebay. It's a $400.00 F/C OR S/C pump plate 12" X 18". It's almost a waste of time looking anymore.

If I don't search, that will be the time I miss a piece or a great photograph.

I personally, like buying from established collections where the collector can tell me when and where they got an item from. Plus I get to examine the item and satisfy any concerns pertaining to authenticity first hand. Online purchases from unknown sellers are getting too risky especially considering the prices that items are currently demanding.
