Let me rephrase that. Anybody wants to remember?
Before the Internet you probably could not find out about this old stuff or replacements. Its making the community work.

Plus

Not going off on this !!! no need for sorry - this is all a good lesson for us all!

One plus - it'll be good reading Roger's Ebay article on Porch lights in Airstream Life....

I just wonder how clobbered the guy in Minnesota is today?

Good thing I bought mine when I did from the guy! I'm gonna give him a call and tell him what they are really worth!!!

Should I?

Rob

Rob, you did a good job being forthcoming about this. Still it's strange how eBay buyers will leap at an item without researching it. That's what Roger's column is all about.

It's tough to say this about a site that's only been up six years but us "oldtimers" at AIR Forums know you to be a straight up and honest person. Thanks for sticking with our freewheeling format. Did I hear a karma bell?

Personally, I have done my learning the hard way. Often it was through foolish mistakes. Some of those mistakes bring a smile to my face now. Karma to you for your honesty, and KHARMA to you for your honor.

So Rob, you don't happen to have a spare piece of rub rail for a '73, do you? About 3 feet will do. I'll bid $10 right here and now if'n ya got one.

Hi, I would also like to say that the main reason sellers have auctions is that people get absessed while bidding, to win, and tend to over bid on everything. I personally don't like auctions and try to do my home work before joining in. (ie) The banks decided it would work in their favor to hold auctions on recently foreclosed homes versus just selling them. "Bidder beware."

Than on the REAL auctions if the item gets no bid, the auctioneer lowers starting bid.

Look at this

Airstream Life back issue - sold for $48... the Ebay market is crazy - the whole - "It's mine when you bid... and someone taking it from you so you bid again..." that's why the No Reserve auctions work better in my mind...

Imagine seeing this auction with a Buy It Now of $45? unbelieveable.

funny thing about that Airstream life, I bought it and 7 others from the source for less.... that seller is a rat.... I say do not buy from_______. You fill in the blank. It is your money folks, how you spend it is your choice. I would give you more karma if I could. By the way, the packing material had better be good, I do not want my porch light damaged when it arrives....

I don't know if there are others. This could be the same robandzoe who tried to give away a project Argosy in a raffle. Rob's cool. That or else my recall isn't what I recall.
