Default Is anyone selling anything?????

Let me start by saying Hi. I'm new today to RJ forum been a member of RJ for just 2 months or so. When I started looking at racing junk ads I noticed the ads that had sold banners on them. so I listed a few things now I notice no banners saying sold, did they remove them or nothing selling anymore?????? Didn't know if I hit a wrong button, not to show sold cars or what.

I have 2 cars, 2 powerglides and some misc BBC parts on here and can't get anyone to buy. By no means is any of it junk, but no one wants to pay cash. Everyone wants to trade.

You need to keep that wagon, if i can find them i'll post some pics. of a 72 wagon, changed the front hood and fenders to late model. I built it from scratch, with rec. tube chassis and strut front end shocks from an MG, and ladder bar rear. Put a 482" b/blk and the very first pass it went 9.80's, that was in 1980, 2 yrs. later i got divorced and sold the car. I would love to have the car back. Mine had a vynil padded complete top cover from the factory, no side windows, really rare version of the sedan delivery.
Keep the wagon and put a real motor in it, you can run easy 9.50's with a cheap 434"er and drive it to the hotdog stand at the track, and everybody will look funny at you because they won't understand how a car can run so good and not be on the charger or having maintenience done to it between rounds.

Hey Steve, I'll be at the track next year, and I'm far from rich, as long as I have a rifle, a shotgun, and a four wheel drive, I can feed myself.

I wrote the fed a very polite letter explaining how my racing team was in dire financial shape, but if they would cut me a check for a couple of hundred million, I might be able to muddle through for another season. I aint heard from them yet, but what the hey, it's worth a shot.

Steve I hear you loud and clear. I need a roof, and if my house was there, or you were here, you'd get that contract fur shoor. Racing don't cost me quite that much, but I hear ya.
Don't be counting on NO politicians promisses though, once they get elected, they forget all about the American people. What you CAN count on from them, is more of the same tripe, they been putting out. That loud sucking sound you hear, is our economy, going down the tubes. Of course that's JMO, FWIW.
