Those are rare and desireable, don't you know anything[:p]? Besides, they don't make Studebaker's anymore--that MUST make them valuable.[8D]

We discussed this here already. Yeah, how do you come up with a price like that??? This party's selling a tractor for too much as well - again with a starting bid plucked outta thin air.[xx(]

And I wrote them, correcting what they'd said about the body tag. They said it read 106-65 - while I contended that it reads 10G-C5. So now they've "corrected it" to where it says it's 10G-05!:( Even I can read that body tag from the photo they've got up. Maybe this seller needs to invest in some reading glasses![8D]

Miscreant adrift in

<<SIGH>>

WHY do so many people list things on eBay without bothering to get some idea of what it's worth?

And WHY do so many "selling agents" make themselves look stupid and unprofessional by not doing same?

It frustrates me when I see something I'd like to have and the seller thinks it's worth several times what it's really worth...

Again, I say

Robert, this might be another case of "George, that car's gotta go! Put it on Ebay or I'm calling the junk yard" and George still plans to restore it, someday. "Gee, Ma, it didn't sell"
Sheesh, he could have at least given the poor thing a bath and hauled it out into the sunshine before listing. What's with the pic of the fuel pump? ha ha!

I guess that might be, Tom... but sometimes when I hear "wife says it must go" or the like I wonder if I'm the only guy left with cohones [B)]... which again leads me to say

Whats worse is a guy that lives a few miles down the road from me who has a bulletnose starlight that is rock solid. A few whiskey bumps but almost no rust. The engines stuck,the interiors trashed,the chrome is all pitted,you know,its a great starter but it needs everything.
He wants 6k for it,and if he dosen't get it it will sit there and rot.
He also owns a beautiful 60 Hawk,and several other nice collector cars that are all stored inside,but the poor little Champion is sitting out in the elements deteriating. Soon it will be junk.
I offered him 2k,and even thats a stretch,but its close and,like I said,no rust.
Won't take nothing less than 6.

If someone will pay that much for this car on ebay. I'm sure we could get 70K out of our '51 Chammp Starlight. After all, it's restored! [:o)]

When I first saw that listing, one part of me said "bid now" and the other part said to light the stove and stick my face in the fire. I still haven't decided which is the stupidest...........
