    Hey wait a minute, what’s that right around the corner ?

    Yeah - right down there ...

    ... another smoking deal!

    We are coming around to a present where we will all run out of money long before we run out of things that we are able to purchase very very cheaply...o_O

    I've had that before on eBay. Shot down by a last-second sniping app. Unethical but legal...

    Lots of folks in this area unloading old/vintage cars worth fixing/driving and/or restoring - some great deals, low miles and rust, etc... You need a trailer and a tow vehicle to get them, though, which I have neither. Not to mention place or tools to work on a vehicle. But that's another thing.

    Kinda painful to watch stuff get sold to someone who does... OTOH, kinda painful to watch them sit listed for a few days/weeks. Someone just buy the damn thing and stop the torture.

    I hate when that happens!

    In a related manner, I missed out on one of Fender’s American FSRs a couple of years ago. I had stopped paying much attention to new offering and Fender had a limited run of Thinlines with a neck humbucker. I would like have bought one but never got the chance. They pop up now and then but offered at obscene prices.

    I find alcohol is appropriate in these situations.

    Most situations.

    I don’t have a problem..

    Want salt in the wound?......tell us about the deal you "just missed", and then another member posts, "Oh.....I just bought that". THAT would tick me off. ;)

    I relish the deals I have come across over the years, but I really enjoy reading fellow members here finding outstanding, incredidible deals.

    It goes against the spirit of bidding on an auction site. Even if you had a few seconds to respond you'd probably be outbid in automatic steps. Hey-ho, that's the way it is...
    There'll obviously be no complaints from sellers though. :)
