    From the word go my weekend was a screwed up. Nothing went right, but when I did get there I didn’t find to much good stuff at all. I picked up street tiers till I get my tsls. Pissed I didn’t get to meet any of you either. I waited on people that was a bad idea. How did you guys make out?? hope you did better then me.

    yeah, i can see how auctions may affect some of it overall.. sellers thinking they can get x for something on Ebay, then having higher prices... same for buyers, thinking why pay x for something when i can get it cheaper on Ebay..

    i don't know... seemed kinda the same as usual.. some deals... some real good deals.. some wanting way too much for crap... etc..

    my buddy is an example.. he had a red 71 olds convertible 442 clone in the car coral with a tag of 20 g's... hes freakin nuts.. only an idiot would have given him that.. cars worth 1/2 that.. but thats what some peeps count on, idiots..

    its a crapshoot.. some years i've found a ton of stuff... other years, nothing... always good for picking up those odd tool type items...
