You know, there's another possibility we haven't considered yet...

Maybe the seller is posting these items not to sell, but just for our entertainment! :-O

What's sad is that they don't bother to research what they have and the value of the item before they post it for sale.

I notice two questions have been sent to the seller, but he has replied to neither. Do you suppose he didn't like the questions that were asked?

But it has free shipping!

I just sent him a message saying that the wheel is from a '30-31 Model A and it's worth about $40. We'll see whether that one gets posted on the listing. :-)

Maybe he just typed an extra zero ď0Ē; and meant $250?

Here is the seller's reply:

thanks--i will tell the other 3 guys who bought them for this price

Apparently he has a sense of humor. :-):-):-)

Maybe I could sell him my tires/rims and buy me another car. This could be a profitable situation to accumulate more Tís for me. I could sell him five tires/rims at $2,000 each = $10,000. He could sell them for $2,500; making $500 profit on each tire. I could then take my $10K and buy another car. I could sell my tires/rims direct (eliminating the middle man); but I donít think I could find any buyers like he does at $2,500; and it might be harder sleeping at nights. I need to go out and work on my T; going to start it today and see if it moves. LOL

I'v got two of those in my back yard right now. I got them at the Long Beach Meet a few years back.

I don't own a Model A. I picked them up for a friend of mine from a guy that was going to put them in the dumpster.

I would consider selling them for $500 each. Shipping is extra of course. :-)

I asked what makes him think it's worth $2,500

He responded

I can see the news now..."Stock market plummets, New gold standard emerges: Rusty model A Ford wheels!"

I need to email that Chinese bearing guy to alert him!

Marvin, that was in the 19th century. The population has grown tremendously since then. Now there's a new sucker arriving every few seconds. Most of them are on Facebook sharing bogus posts without checking anything.

-Steve-
Is it really any different to be sitting across the table and be 'texting' each other??? All I can do is shake my head. There are technological advances that aren't advancing anything. Lambeau Field just upgraded their WiFi to more than 10,000 lines - For what? - So you can text to the person in the seat next to you??? Maybe there are already robots around us? Have we already lost the capability to think for ourselves? Like I said - "I shake my head!" Just call me 'Bewildered'....

What he didn't tell you, was that there was a car attached to the other 3!

My wife does a lot of texting (mostly to her daughter). Supposedly texting is more convenient to do than placing a phone call. She has a new phone (I think they're properly called a "device" these days) on which she can speak her message to the phone and it will send that as a text. So, I wondered, "if you're going to speak the message, why not just push the button to place a call?" I didn't get much of an answer to that. :-)

Mike and Terry: On the SAID RIM AND TIRE; Well I sent the guy "mikev007voortek" a message and he replied back the following

"y the other 3 people didn't mind paying what i am asking"

s mikev007voortek"

To me if I were in the market for wheels I would want at least 4, or am I smelling to much California burning smoke?!
So he must think or trying to make us think he either sold a bill of goods or is smelling the swamp gas to much

Check his ebay feedback and you'll see just how many of these wheels he has sold in the past couple of years - ZIP!!! This is in the same league as that thousand dollar tire pump. Listening and learning would be the way a smart antique dealer does business. Obviously not the case here. The guy is the laughing stock of our forum as well as probably the Model A forum as well.

Bill: speaking of SMOKE. Our moon was a nice shade of RED from all the smoke last night. Sort of spooky! Chuck

Chuck In the mornings you can look at the sun like a hunk of yellow cheese.
Now the guy says he has sold three wire wheels at the price he has on the listing and I think he is a big bunch of BS. Oh I was out for coffee at 3:00 Cal time and this lady came in and said it had just poured bucket of rain at our Local Shasta Dam, and not a drop in the area where I was. A lot of clouds but nothing falling from the heavens. The rain would be great if there is no lightning involved, to start new fires.
