    I'm not even gonna post the link, because the guy was such a ... jerk? Made an offer on a Buy it now that has been there for weeks. He comes back with a counter-offer, but then jacks the shipping up to make the difference!

    Far worse than a just a jerk, I'd call him a shyster.

    He was probably hoping you'd slip up, and miss that change. Almost as good as bottom dealing in a poker game. :mad::mad::mad:

    Here's, um, something for $40 + Shipping with a carefully worded description that reads "the rear wheels are off" and "the front wheels ran", then suggests a Bidder look at a linked video to see what they think. At least the Seller states they're "not a train collector". Even if the motor turns, it's clearly an item for the trash can.

    At that $ I say good Luck to the seller ,especially when he wants the buyer to calculate the shipping. Note the Condition...

    WOW. that many bucks for this lot? The photo is such that I can't see what engine is included, but no matter what, this is an easily under fifty dollar assortment.

    Oh come on guys, this is a very early model of an Atlas vacuum car.
    It works extremely well as evidence of the big dust blob on the car.
    Buy it, take it outside and clean it, you'll love it!
    But do keep children and small pets away from it...

    The great deals just keep coming on eBay. There's this for $22.24 that admits damage "may have defects".

    and this mate also priced at $22.24 with shipping that also admits damage "may have defects".

    I will never understand why people list this junk, other than they have a lot of time to kill.
