Someone hoping to strike gold on Ebay for hood locks

Amazing the greed some people have. These can be bought NOS for roughly $200 or less. I think Ford Tooling sets sell for roughly $140. I am not usually one to complain about stuff like this but this got under my skin.

Re:Someone hoping to strike gold on Ebay for hood locks

I guess it's the American way; hope there is someone out there with a lot of money and not enough patience or sense to check other sources.

I've noticed that a lot of new Mustnag stuff on eBay is more expensive than we can purchase it from the major Mustang parts vendors and I've often wondered if anyone ever bids on those items. In fact, I keep the NPD catalog open on my computer when I'm looking for stuff on eBay just as a reference. It would be easy to overpay on eBay since some of the stuff is so rare and such a good deal!!!!!! :P

Did you notice his "best offer" option?

I offered him $125 for them... but declined. Yeah, well be patient, I've seen them go NOS for a lot less!

I offered him $425 for his set of GT hubcaps and the NOS temp gauge and he said "what are u crazy thanks for the insult". $525 is the opening bid for both combined.
