Dealer Poster

Here is something for the 73 and up crowd to make you feel like part of the group. Now you can overpay for a poster that the seller most likely got for free.

Re: Dealer Poster

Lots of people are looking for vintage “garage art”. I don’t see how anyone can fault the seller, regardless of what he paid, or didn’t. I’ve been given more than a little racing posters, fliers and other memorabilia in the past, I’ll probably sell some later this year to cover some bills. The owners were just going to throw it away, they sold their hard parts and either didn’t see any value or didn’t want to hassle with selling them piece by piece. That’s the reason it has value, most were thrown away, it works that way with car parts too. Some small mundane parts are expensive today because nobody bothered to save them when these cars were being parted out in great numbers.

Re: Dealer Poster

If you were to find a $100 dollar bill lying by the side of a road, it doesn't follow that is worthless because of where it came from or how it was found.

The only reason someone would want insurance is if they want to pay someone elses bills or want someone else to pay their bills.

BIGOT is a word used by people that can't use logical reasoning to prove that you are wrong when you don't agree with them.

Why does it matter if the seller got it for free or not?

Hope you didn’t take it personally. Unfortunately I’ve started to see a lot of people trying to dictate what people can sell items for based on what they think something is worth or how much the seller paid. That’s leading down a bad road if people are serious.

Seriously, arent you guys being a little over sensitive?

Hey Brad, what do you got against the 73 and up crowd. One day, you'll be that old.

Re: Dealer Poster

Back in my swap meet days I bought a tunnel ram set-up from another vendor. Paid him the asking price. Took it back to my space and broke it down to sell the parts separately. Later, when he walked by, you would have thought I stole it from him he was so pizzed off. Sold all those tunnel ram parts that same day. At later swap meets same guy refused to sell me anything. Some people don't learn from their mistakes. Others can profit from them though.

I don’t normally sell things at the same swapmeet I bought it at, to me, it’s bad form.

This morning a friend that has worked NHRA events for the last 30 years called and asked if I wanted racer handouts that had collected. They are moving and clearing out stuff the aren’t going to use. They said there are around 300. I said yes and asked if they wanted anything for them, they said no even though they know I am going to sell them. Their main interest is that these don’t wind up in the garbage, which is what would have happened if I didn’t want them. This isn’t the first time they’ve done something like that, last year they gave me a box of stickers, including hundreds of national event contestant stickers.

It would shock most people to find out what NHRA, track employees and long time racers have thrown away over the years. They have been around really cool stuff for so long that many interesting items become something that’s just taking up shelf space. I was talking to the former track manager of Fremont drag strip, they got tired of cleaning their old trophies so they filled up the bed of their truck with trophies dating back to the 1950’s from Fremont, Half Moon Bay, Cotati, Vaca Valley, Lions, Bakersfield, Irwindale, OCIR, and more, basically every track up and down the west coast, then tossed them in a dumpster at work. They are not the only racer I know that’s done that.

Re: Dealer Poster

I picked up a box of old car mags once and in there was the opening day lions dragway program booklet. this was in the 80s, i ran a ad in the paper and sold it for 50 bucks. Found a dealer pamphlet for a 79 z28 they used to give away at the dealerships. i sent it to a 79 z28 owner over on nastyz28 just because he had a 79z and I dont. But its amazing how stuff some folks think are worthless actually has value to others
got a case of old oil cans at a yard sale, saw it sitting on the ground next to a trashcan. Asked the lady for a price, she said they were trash but if I want them take them. jim
