I still like them both, ( FB & OG ), lots of negativity on OG, but there are some real good guys on here and I appreciate that. OG has been good to me, I have sold a lot of good stuff on here.. The info and knowledge on OG is invaluable. I do find quite a few members on here that are too quick to judge items ( repo or orig ) before they know what there talking about. I think the more tools we have in our tool boxes the better off we are and the more educated we get. There is room for both venues, "to each his own".. Thanks OG for all you have done for me.

ps. I like the guy from NJ have the same feeling that a handful of guys on OG take exception to me being from Canada, not sure why ? " just sayin " .. smile

Best of luck to redhotrelics Anthony and his Facebook page. I just don't appreciate spreading negativity about Oldgas.com and its members right here while building up someplace else to go.

Hey Dave,,, please don't mistake FB for just having repro stuff, there is a ton of good original stuff being bought and sold on FB every day, there are some really good pages on there and good buys.
The advantage on OG is the vast amount of knowledge that is compiled from all the members new and old that's available on OG just for the asking.. ( still likem both ) smile

I believe he was calling facebook the repop. And Oldgas the authentic original.

And Wes, I may be a little na´ve about such things, but I find it hard to believe that anyone would crash on you simply for being Canadian. I'm only one guy and one voice, but I assure I don't feel that way. Being from the Detroit area, I've always felt like cousins with Canada and my Canadian friends.

Thats EXACTLY my point!

You can NOT discriminate against the new guys because they do it for a living OR pickers because they make money selling signs and continue to have a positive venue for discussion! I have watched this happen for almost 10 years now after it happened to me!
Then to see how badly redhotrelics was wrongfully treated for inflated prices YET his signs are selling like hot cakes setting the new retail standards!!!
I have pointed out the FAKE usernames, Nothing changed!
Pointed out MEMBERS buying signs from india and selling as originals, Nothing changed still members!
I have pointed out ebay, craigslist scammers and put my own neck on the line with people selling repo's as originals and had my family threated BUT yet that guy is still a member!
I have SHOUTED from the mountain tops how OLDGAS.COM is the greatest website on the planet for 9+ years!
I honestly used to invite everyone to join BUT refrain from doing so because they get beat up being the new guy!
I am in NO WAY saying facebook is better than oldgas! However I am saying if you buy/sell signs and enjoy seing new discoveries every day then facebook should be added to your endeavors....Thats All!!!!!
Roll with the changes oldgas and STOP picking on the new guys OR there will be NOTHING but OLD grumpy men sitting on here wondering what happened...
I have done my best to give my honest advice, post 1000's of pictures, perpetuate some of the largest or THE largest donations to oldgas! I have worn my oldgas t shirt and hoodies to every show and placed some of the rarest signs in people's collections ALL while taking pride in doing so..I have NEVER had a bad transaction and ALWAYS offered a 100% money back guarantee!
Noone said anything about NOT liking this site wes/jim!!! So telling me to leave IF I dont like it is a cop out...Thats an understood scenario! I will leave IF I dont like it just like all the others that have left...
I have the utmost respect for Jim and oldgas.com or I wouldn't even be wasting my breath right now trying to help! Period!

As for repo's on facebook? NOT ALLOWED WHATSOEVER!!!!!
unlike oldgas where they are fine as long as they are marked or sold as such?

LOL



Hey Tom, why are you bashing me? I don't care for FB, so what? I don't care what you googled, I have no profile on mopar, you didn't see my 72 Scamp, and big deal, I sold a sign on oldgas. You found that by searching my user name, not my real name. So, maybe you're the one who needs to learn how to google. If you have a problem, why not send me a private message instead of bashing me in public? You talk about respecting newbies, and this is coming from you? The beanie babies comment is totally disgusting.
