Anyone stoopid enough to consider purchasing one of those "diamonds in the rough" from eBay deserve what they get.
I do believe P.T. Barnum said it best: "There's a sucker born every minute"....
"HEY!!! - These floors are dirty as hell and I'm NOT GONNA TAKE IT ANY MORE!!!!"

Hit 'em with a can of turd polish and they'll look and work as good as new!
I wont say those are bad looking rigs, but if you put a pile of bull manure next to them it would make the pile of manure look like polished gold
So Pat, being the expert on this kinda stuff, what should they sell for on e-bay?
Paint 3 stripes on it and call it a Gucci.

They will sell for a FORTUNE, since the buyers are TRUST FUND BABIES who have no connection with reality or worth. They just want it, buy it, and have their ACCOUNTANTS pay for it.
Current bid $250.00 plus $85.00 shipping? I don't think so. He'd have to pay me at LEAST $450.00 to take it off his hands .(Local Goodwill recycles e-waste for free. they'd LOVE to have that sucka.)
I'd ask for more to take the one with no tubes...

Most recently it was they who expedited the search for debris after the Columbia Explosion , and right now, at this moment, they are involved in homeland security to a greater degree than you would want me to make public."
