To be honest here, you really didn't hit the jackpot, I hope you didn't pay too much for all of it....

The track you'll probably have to almost give away as there is a TON of it out there, just be sure you charge enough for the shipping. For the rest of it, I would suggest you look at what folks are charging on places like Lucky Bobs and Buds HO and Jag Hobbies, but honestly, don't expect to get rich off of what you have there, those items will sell from $1.00 to maybe 4 or 5 depending on the item....

Marty,

Thanks for the help. I am not trying to get rich but rather just move them. I want $100 for the whole lot, is that too much to ask?

Cheers

I personally think that's on the high side, but that's the great thing about ebay.... Take about 20 pictures form different angles, give it a really nice write up and you never know. :)

Just giving you a hard time of course, but I wouldn't give you much more than half that for the lot of it myself.

Mean Marty strikes again!!

hosam,
Congrats on calling Marty's bluff and putting the stuff out on eBay. Most guys read Marty's low ball appraisals of their items they have for sale and send them off to him for less than half of what they are worth. He has a huge collection of parts from unsuspecting guys on this forum who don't know any better. The good news he doesn't have a clue what to do with these parts so all of his cars are c***!

So says the guy who finished last, WAY behind Marty, in our g-jet race this past weekend. So obviously I have an Ax to grind. :)

(My real complaint is Marty is 15 years younger, better looking and makes more money than I do. He's taller too, the bas****) (love you man)

Later, The slow and going larger scale Rockinator

WOW!!! I really feel the love Dave! :) If I had really wanted his stuff I would have said $25 and made an offer already. ;) LOL

Don't listen to the Rockinator, he's old, short and bitter.... :) And good luck on the 'bay bud, hope you get what you're looking for!
