Then there's this dreamer hoping to get nearly 13 g's for a clapped out old Ford chassis bus that would sell for $1500 on a good day.

Its been a while since I looked at buses on Ebay, man I'd hate to be an ill-informed buyer in this market!
I think ebay attracts a lot of sellers that are unrealistic. They try to sell in their local market with no hope, then they turn to ebay.

I stopped using as a seller ebay after paypal made it so buyers could chargeback stuff 90 days later, now it is 6-months. No thanks.

IDk how anyone makes a buck off ebay. I quit selling long ago. Its totally a bunch of scamming scumbag "buyers" who ruined ebay. Ebay used to be awesome, now its just a ghost of its former self.

I agree I used to love ebay in the early 2000s, I sold tons of stuff. I loved the auction selling platform.

All the sellers I know have left ebay saying they cannot pay all the losses from chargebacks and scams.
