Who's gonna buy now considering the last guy :mrgreen: paid less.

JOY to me


I often wonder how some ebay sellers think. In one of my regular searches there's a guy who's had the same diecast up for sale for more than three months. It has a cracked windshield and a blotch on the paint. He always runs a two day auction, and in the last 12 hours of the second day, he always discounts the item 10%. In all this time, I don't recall seeing it get a single bid but he never lowers the initial price. I made him an offer at 50% off and he didn't answer.

Sir thanks! i won that one for 36 + 12 ship. not bad imo. i already have that one and the mirage version but the square case one was bought second hand from Japan after a long search and i figure it won't be bad to have another as they aren't the easiest to come by.

haha, i don't know about "need"! but i'm not totally happy with the condition of the one from Japan and aside from the '89 Sauber C9 this is probably my favorite LM car of all time. the paint seems thin or something, especially the orange, as you can see dark areas especially around edges, and it has a small corner missing from one of the scrutineering decals. i found some Virages 1/43 '91 LM scrutineering decals that i might use to repair the corner. anyway, the Mirage version across the board is MUCH fresher looking. but i like the square display best.

i'll flip whichever isn't the best. even with the documented issues, someone will want to scoop it up because it still looks alright and they aren't the easiest to find.

I once made the mistake of buying an Ebbro Toyota 2000GT in a similar hue which had optimistically been described as Gold. Must be a Japanese thing....
