    It sounds like a good idea, but what if you post an item asking what a part is worth and prospective buyers then come in with a low estimate? Or vice-versa, you post an item and sellers with the same item come in with a high estimate? Just a thought.

    Hey what a great idea!!!

    All we would need then is an anorexic, self-conscious, poor excuse of a "babe," a selection of "politically correct" car part price experts, some "expert" Cinematography
    of the part . . . and then we could sell the show to the Velocity Channel.

    How about callin' it . . . . What's my part worth?

    - - - - - - - - -

    What am I doin'!!! They are so desperate that they . . . might actually just create such a show!!

    - - - - - - - -

    Apologies for hijacking the thread but . . . . . awful television made me do it!!

    Post the item For Sale. If it sells in the 1st hour, with more waiting in line, it was worth more. If you still have it a year later it was worth less.

    That would be great, I tried asking and got no reply.
    Would be nice to gather opinion and make a decision based on information.

    Market value inquiries are very commonly posted in The Bench, they do not belong in the sales section, and that seems to work very well, with an ocassional need to remind those posting in the thread that it is NOT a for sale thread. Maybe the poster is investigating values before buying an item... everyone seems to assume he is thinking about selling one. I personally see no reason to add to the bloated # of sub-forums we already have here. JMHO.

    I'd rather see a "For Trade" section. I don't like selling parts, but I may have something someone else needs and vice-versa.

    Parts for Sale is commonly used for "sale or trade" listing and works fine. Really doesn't seem to be much posted as Trade Only, so it doesn't seem a separate area is needed.
