Excellent Ebay story!!!!! I wish that more good ones like that occur. I
emailed the seller on quite a few of what he has for auction. He is patient
so far in his return emails. He continually states that "there are two
sides to every story"
Is that what the rest of you all are getting from him? He answered the one
that I asked if there was black overspray on the white VW cabriolet tonneau.
