Someone must have been asleep. I was the winning bidder on E-bay for a 108K btu hanging water to air heat exchanger. An Airtherm unit, much like a Modine :D For the real deal of a price of 50 bucks :D When I called the guy to arrange shipping, I inquired about the other three units that were pictured on the pallet in the add. He got very angry and said that the last one he sold for $490. Oh well :)

Sucks to be him - He should have used a reserve or started bidding at a more reasonable price.

That's eBay and great to be YOU! :D

That happened to me with a Sony Handicam somebody gave me. I never used it, saw an identical one sell on Ebay for $165, mine went for $90 a week later.

Someone got lucky at my expense back in '01 ...... was at a NASCAR race at PIR, & was so hammered that I left my spankin' new camcorder in the makeshift Price Chopper supermarket in the middle of
"tent city" out there in the sea of campers. After 30 minutes a neuron fired in my skull & reminded me that I had left something quite expensive in the store -- of course, when I got there nobody had seen a thing ... :sick: :sick: :sick:

VERY ....VERY bad hangover the next day!!

What sucked the most was I had filmed this redhead stripper from IN .... and the tape was in the camcorder ... :shock: :cry:

I had to chime in about the "gettin' lucky' Super Stroker Stoker. I was sure it involved a large Coal Chubby...but kinda the same thing. Feels great to finally get the 'big score', even if it's a Modine type device. I thought Scotty was probably getting in on some of Jesse's overburden....but refreshing to know he's successfully completed the 'Tiger Rehab'.
I won an ebay auction on a almost new EFM DF520 for 4200 in 08, and the deal was nixed and the seller was kicked off ebay. Make sure you specify a reserve or a realistic starting bid, or it can bite you....in the rump!

Fred sure knows about the 'redhead thing', otherwise known as "some like it hot." It goes without saying that a Harley is the ultimate combo for two Hot Machines!

Snow everywhere here this AM....leaves are trying to POP, and it's is a photo op that we will have to take advantage of.
Melted on road surfaces already, no plows or sand or salt for this one. 31 degrees and a rainy weekend upcoming.

:eek2: :notsure: :stretcher:

Does the carpet have to match the drapes for that magic?
