Is it time to sell my extra old Ford wrenches?

Mein Gott! I'm sitting on a goldmine. I can sell my pile of band wrenches and buy another car.

Well Howard, I think I'd wait until the actual selling price is known before I'd go out and spend my new found fortune. :-)

Howard - if you want a bigger nest-egg I have some investment grade spark plug wrenches that would go with that band wrench...

He forgot the decimal point between the two and the five i.e. $2.50

Bill, I think the word is overcrushed. You'd have to bend it out to get it on a band nut.

Marketing. It's all about marketing.

The username reveals the whole thing. The poor guy placed the listing from wherever he's locked away.

I wonder if he'll get anyone to bid. Wasn't it P.T. Barnum that said "There's a fool born every minute?"

Is this the guy that had a high head listed for several hundred bucks a while back?

It seems that all the wrenches I have or have seen, are stretched open (?). Is that to make it easier to get on the nuts with oily hands? Me, I squeezed mine to a good fit on the nuts... ws

Whoa! I was almost there until I read "For Collectible Purposes Only". By God, if I'm paying $250 for a wrench, I better, by golly, be able to use it!

Jim, there's some question about whether he actually said it, but the Barnum line is There's a sucker born every minute. But since Barnum's passing in 1891 the world's population has increased from a billion and a half to seven billion. The means the suckers are now arriving at a rate of approximately 4.6 per minute, or one new sucker about every thirteen seconds. This accounts for the phenomenal growth of the internet.
