Re: OK, own up...

Why would anyone want a towbar on a wedding car?






























































And I doubt I would go and look at this, I was scared reading the Ad

Ebay's a sort of dumping ground for owt' innit'? Rough, dodgy motors, and sorts seeking blokes as well now. Ebay's a Disney World, have fun, but then, RUN.

Oh goodness - now that I've had a cup of tea and calmed down I think that this is actually quite brave of Belinda because there's going to be loads (735 so far!) of folk looking and, I guess, laughing.

He/She have probably thrown away all chances of selling what actually looks like an OK car because who is going to go near someone who obviously is looking for a "big, hunky coloured guy" to drive off into the countryside.

Good luck to her/him.

Fair comment, but at that mileage, and that, albeit reasonable attempt at humour type history, just right I suppose, for a follow on sort of reasoning crackpot to buy? A waste of money, Honey.

Re: OK, own up...

Yep! my simple mind has managed to deduce that.: Seriously, how on earth people go for some of the rubbish stuffed on Ebay, defies my limited sense of reasoning,: OK some parts suppliers, and other gear on there maybe fine, but other's definitely ain't!:
You may pick up a genuine motor, which has become a 'sticker' but I bet most have been on Auto Trader, or similar first.:

So, I'll be bombarded with, "I got a bargain from there!" value for money, maybe, but 'bargain' cheapish motors are often one enormous headache,imho.
