    I only knew of him in the past 20 years because of the drink(Lemonade-Sweet Tea). Hopefully he's in a much better place RIP.

    My Dad was an avid golfer, and we used to watch it on TV. Arnold Palmer and Gary Player stick out in my mind. Palmer pioneered how to franchise a celebrity name.

Does anyone know how to take apart a shuco GT4?

    Never done it, but its probably like any other model. Unscrew screws beneath, look for hidden ones in wheel wells. Take off the chassis and keep going.

    He always says he's quitting projects if there's no posts. if your motivation is from other people's Internet words, and not your love for the hobby, then that's not right. If it's stuff people are interested in, they'll post. He shouldn't be searcheing for pity posts

Anyone got himself matte grey Nismo GT-R from GT Spirit? Haven't seen and couldn't find any better photos of it. All I can find is what's up on webshops where you know pics aren't the best. Trying to decide whether to buy white or matte grey ..

I'm bemused and annoyed at eBay sellers who offer their models at excessive prices which get no takers and yet time-after-time they repost them for the same amounts. eBay offers a helpful feature that allows them to search successful sales which should help them price them accordingly - doesn't ANYONE do research? Remember, a sure sign of insanity is to do the same thing over-and-over and expect different results ;-).

    I have several auctions up right now, most of which are Best Offer's; and I find it amusing when a buyer makes an offer, and I point out the most recent closed sale of an identical item.

    Not to be argumentative, but I think it goes both ways, and unfortunately, even the best and cheapest duct tape you can buy on eBay won't fix it.
    Sep 19 2016 09:42 AM

    I agree, Jersey! Surely its too easy to reporst the listings, should be forced to type every word every time, lol.

    I've learnt to just laugh at these guys and not let it annoy me. Hopefully they'll never sell at the price they're dreaming of and will end up spending a fortune in insertion fees.
