FAO Pog, RW and the others on here who sell odd stuff on eBay - do you ever wonder about the people you sell stuff to? I've shifted a load of brochures this week and sometimes click on their feedback to see what else they get up to.One chap has bought loads of Ford 6000 RDS CD players stereos, and most intriguingly someone in France seems to have quite a taste for lesbian goods and Chrysler/Talbot Alpines...

1973 Datsun 1200 B110 2dr; 1980 Laurel 2.4 C230; 1988 Sunny 1.6 LX N13
1992 Camry 2.2GL project car (still on hold); 1993 Camry Estate 2.2GL (was daily driver, written-off and awaiting repair)
1996 Lexus LS400

And a couple of modern Toyotas.

Arr, I like to have a nose through, see if there's any treasure amongst the mundanity. It's a particularly enjoyable game with those you meet "in person", and especially if you look 'before'. Trying not to smirk as some middle-aged grey-lord hands over a couple of hunnert whilst you picture his normally refined form in that man-size leather basque and size-11 knee-length PVC boots.... Magnificent.

I love doing this, and it's so much easier now they write the titles on feedback pages.

DAMN DAMN DAMN :shock: :roll: :lol:

Not really played that game much, but might do now! The bloke who bought my Granada had previously purchased some, ahem, racy undergarments in a size 24 - but then he bought his wife with him when he collected it and I can understand they were for her (he was even bigger). My wife has her own eBay account these days so I don't have to worry about that!Just back from the 304 rescue mission - my part ended much sooner than Wuvvum's - last I saw was him happily trundling towards Watford on the M25 - so hopefully we will have some pics and a full writeup from him later.Interesting endorsement of the Alpine range by your Continental "friend", though.

2003 Renault Espace IV 2.0 petrol - living up to its reputation...

I must admit I do, though if they looked at my items they'd just see I have a fondness for horrible old cars and cheap games. Phew!

I believe this buyer may actually have made love to a Daihatsu. Great work!

:shock: :wink:

That was superb! Makes a change from all the "fast delivery, gr8" and "CREDIT 2 EBAY" boredom.I tend to leave rather fruity-sounding feedback, unless I'm bored, in which case I just use variants of "Superb" and "Lovely stuff".
