I was looking around the long list of Cobra's on Ebay and noticed a ERA listed for $121,000. Hummmm
Something sounds out of whack. You can buy a CSX for that.I was looking around the long list of Cobra's on Ebay and noticed a ERA listed for $121,000. Hummmm
That things been on there for about 3 months. Whats funny is he never lowers his price when he re-lists it.
The use of Ebay as a selling tool has changed in the last few years. More and more folks are using it strictly as an advertising medium than anything else. Personally, my thoughts are, for the price, where else can you get world wide coverage of a specific target audience. Make the description off the wall, or the price outrageous, and your hit count goes up exponentially as links like the ones above get posted to forums such as this. Two people post it, then those two people post it to other forums, and so on and so forth. The pyramid effect works quite well under these conditions.That things been on there for about 3 months.

Yeah, but it still doesn't get the item sold if the price is unrealistic (however as you know better than most, it only takes that one guy...).The pyramid effect works quite well under these conditions.
The ERA is a cobra kit so to speak, so speaking about one roadster or another is still considered semi on topic. As for the links, mine is associated with the topic of grossly overpriced kit cars in general being listed on Ebay. Again, quite on topic, what seems to be your boggle with either or?and why is there an ERA topic in the main forum much less links to ebay ads?
Bill S., I agree. In fact, with my new build I've found the other place to be much more valuable and it's directly impacted my build. By being able to post what I'm doing in a conspicuous manner I've been able to make some contacts that have directly benefited pieces of my build in ways I would have not known about otherwise. The wealth of knowledge is impressive. I think what the ff forum offers works for the culture it's created but it's just not a useful to me as it used to be.
On another note, I never knew this subforum existed. When I look at where this forum is in the string up top I can't find it by starting here: http://www.ffcars.com/forums/
I wouldn't worry about catching hell, I don't think anyone will see it once this thread falls off the main page.
