You might want to keep an eye on the BAY, Dunk. They show up there once in a while. (that is where I found all of mine.) While you are at it, look for the race-savers fire truck for me, too, yeah? :thumbsup: Good luck!
There are some users who will use a "sniper bidding site" to do their dirty work for them. There is a way around them if you are serious about a particular auction. If you really want an auction more than another guy, to be safe, throw 20.00 more at it than you think someone else is willing to pay. Chances are, you will win the auction if your guess is correct.
That is great, Dunk, me too. But I still do it with dial-up. These guys let another COMPUTER do it for them with 1 second to go. More moneys are the only way to win.
They have a max they are willing to pay too. If you are serious about an auction, throw a crazy high max bid at it. You will still only pay 1.00 more than the last guy is willing to spend and he will not have time to bid again. This can backfire if he is thinking the same way though. It is a gamble. Just have the moneys to back it up if you win, yeah? :thumbsup:
I see them on ebay all the time. I bought two there. one was dead MIB and the otyher one was in need of restoration. I found a guy that make the clear plastic stickers and made it look as good as new. If you keep at it, you'll get one. Since you don;t care about the condition, it should be pretty easy to find on the bay.
I like AJ's. The're a nice addition to any HO collection. they're not racers, but they're fun nonetheless. I have the tow truck too, but the light bulb is burnt out, so I keep searching the bay for another. I want to wait until I find an original AJ's red bulb for it.
