Just received my never used 3-block Brockley Tyre's. Vintage racing tires. A set of 5 new tires for $200.00 plus freight. I was the only bid. Going on my model A boattail with model B wheels. Saved me a bunch. :-)

Wow good job. I have only purchased three items from e-bay and was disappointed three times.

I have purchased a good set of brake drums, brake linings and a good power take off assembly for my M Farmall tractor, all for less than $100 total including shipping. I got stuck on a Singer sewing machine purchase.

My ebay skills are better now so overall, I have no complaint.

Very good deal.:-) I buy and sell on E-Bay all the time. Have got some "steals" thru the years. Im a satisfied E-Bay buyer and seller. Like anything you do in life. Use good judgement, as well as study and pay attention to the details. One trick I have to finding good deals is "bottom feeding" That is where I may be bidding on 100 or more items at one time. I will bid a ridiculously low price and then wait to see if I get it. That works for items I would like to have but really do not need, or items I will re-sell. I get about one or two out of a hundred, but the price was so low. The other trick is to look for listings with poor listing practices, or mis-spelled key words. I just bought a very nice lot of original U&J carburetor literature for 9.00 (the start price)on E-Bay I was the only bidder and very few "lookers" The listing did not have the words "model T" in it anywhere. So the seller lost most of his prospective market. I also do not mess with items that have a "reserve" unless it is something I really, really, want or need. Usually a reserve auction is a waist of my time. When I sell I do not list a "reserve" I just set my start price where it is the least I want for the item. That way bidders know where it starts and they will have a chance to buy it if they bid.

I got my wife on E-Bay.

Now if I can just find my tire patch kit I can get her re-inflated in time for dinner.:-)
