  • Crazy priced hubcaps

    How about a $25 set of dog dish caps for only $185?[:0]

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...id=e11010.m204

    Seems like somebody came across a big hubcap stash and thinks they're going to get rich[|)] Check out his other sets, including a beat-up set of older Stude caps[)]

    Why do you think they're still for sale?

      Actually, that style of auction may be working for him. Put an outrageous BIN on an item OR make offer. You get one or two idiots who see a hubcap they've got to have and they just might hit the BIN.

      Go look at his closed auctions. I wish I had that stash of hubcaps

        I hesitate to make fun of his entrepreneurial efforts, he just may well sell them for a handsome profit and get the last laugh...

          Didn't anyone notice that those are NOT Studebaker hubcaps? [:0]

          They used the '60 Lark die, with the center blanked out! They must be for a Checker or International like the Stude. wheelcovers that they used. I have NEVER seen a Cap like that! [:0]

              These S-less editions were used on Mopar compacts - late 60s, early 70s. It's not the only dog dish cap they borrowed from Stude. There's about 3 or 4 that were reincarnated!

              1957 Transtar 1/2ton
              1960 Larkvertible V8
              1958 Provincial wagon
              1953 Commander coupe
              1957 President two door

              No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.
