    Default Sometimes Ebay rocks

    I listed an amp and sold it in less than 4 hours for asking price! (Which was bumped up enough to cover all the ridiculous fees)

    Default Suckz

    I was burned bad on 2500.00 worth of parts for the GTO when I 1st got it. 3 different businesses! And even the private seller I bought the AM radio from. Took over a year to get partial reimbursement + I bought my missing/wrong parts local for same or cheaper. NEVER again.........

    No reserve, with a Buy it Now.

    I tripled my money $ the buyer got a great deal, that's the kind of business I like to do.

    I think one of the driving factors for selling so quick was that there are only two others on Ebay and one guy want's $800 for his, and the other guy wants $1000 for his.

    I have only got burnt once but thanks to Pay Pal I was able to file a dispute and got my money back in a timely fashion. I have bought alot of stuff from models to car parts and have been lucky. The only thing I watch is if it is overseas or California. For some reason if I try to buy from California weard things tend to happen. Not saying California is bad but my luck isn't that good like things get lost in shipping, Back ordered, etc.

    Justa6: I'd give eBay another chance but be sure to buy through PayPal. If you're not happy with the purchase and the seller isn't willing to give a refund, you can file a claim with PayPal they contact the seller for you and if the seller doesn't respond within two weeks they automatically reverse the transaction.

    Also look at the seller's feedback/rep.

    You Will Respect My Authoritah!!

    I was a lil overcautious N even spoke to both Auto Parts company's over the phone before ordering the kits. Had done my homework comparing OPG, Paddock, Year One, NPD, AMES. Knew the kits N contents inside out. WOW 75.00 cheaper...Not in the long run. When restoring...stick to the big boys that know what doing. I have ordered from all these companys in the GTO resto with nothin but praise for their help and correct parts the 1st time. Priceless. Also bought a correct AM radio to fill the hole from a private seller. Recieved a correct radio, but not the one pictured as the dial bezel was in much worse shape and no knobs! The JOKE went on for months about the knobs being in the mail. Have found new repop's for 10.00 ea. Still searchin swap meets. Not worth loosin sleep over. SCREW me once...your bad. SCREW me twice....MY BAD. 3 strikes, Never again! LOL
