Hi Guys: I will step up and say I am the one who locked the forum. And no, Doug, (Insert laugh here) I don't have too much time on my hands. I have been working 14 hour days. I don't think anyone intended to turn the Marine Oil Can discussion into a buy sell, it was just a comment. But, as Jim stated, the offer to buy and sell in this section is not allowed. A simple PM to each other is the best way to go.
I also agree with some of the above statements that people are using this venue as a price guide for pickers. Personally, I don't care becuase I have learned a great deal on possible values for a variety of items that I probably would not have known otherwise. If they do end up on eBay
, that's Ok too. Bid through Oldgas and it helps Jim to keep the lights on....Heck, I hope he makes so much money from eBay
that he can go buy a 60 foot yacht. LOL
I hope everyone continues to contribute to the values section. As I said, it has been very helpful to me...In fact I am going to post an item in the values section for a Texaco item I have never seen for a lady I work with. She isn't selling, but was curious as she know I am a Texaco fan.
I try to have "thick skin" in moderating this section. I try to be like a baseball umpire and just call the balls and strikes. Anyway, jump in when you want to and ignore those that bug you. Have a good day everyone. Hope you all find that item you have always looked for this weekend.
