Mr Jerricho, whilst they might not be the ideal of WRX purists, it is the model with the shortest production run and in future years will be the one the collectors will be looking for!!

Not the dime a dozen squinty eyed models...(they all look the same to me)

No wonder they can't seem to give them away!! Recently advertised here for $38990 on the road, 4 years ago they were $44,990 + on road costs (not STI of course) .

glad it's not just me

I was introduced to my first Corgi Airliner model and then opportunity to acquire said items from Ebay just before Xmas...

after some 'DICE - drink in charge of Ebay' surfing over Xmas and New Year period I spent quite a lot and got 54 and climbing every day, more than I can ever hope to display and had to package the surplus off for display at the office and at my mates house etc.

having said that I've got some cracking models (including all the Britannias, all the 707's and all bar 1 Comet) at cracking deals well below retail price even for brand new ones - however it is addictive and am getting thru at least £100 a week to feed my Corgi model/Ebay addiction

I won't post a link in case I am accused of advertising, but there is an excellent auction site called Ebid where it is actually difficult to pay anything for placing an auction! It doesn't get quite the same traffic as eBay but is steadily increasing (it's been around for several years). It has sites in several countries and is well worth a look if you are an auction fan. WARNING! If you have a partner who is prone to bidding for Louis Vuitton/Burberry etc., then don't let them see this - there's rather a lot of it on there. Do a google on ebid uk and see what you think.

Farrell! Bon sang, ou est-tu??? Last time I looked Je t'avais peggué (I had you pegged ) aux alentours de Lyon, but your post is somewhat "cryptique" as to your current whereabouts...

My pathetic Photoshop job (Jerr. at the wheel of an S2000) pales into insignificance compared to your excellent artwork for Jerricho's "Love Songs" album...

I think I might have you beaten here, Jerricho.

After thorough research I decided on the set of golf clubs I wanted. Couldn't find exactly what I wanted in Australia so went searching the US. Didn't rush things, was very patient, whittled the 55,198 items down to three, put in a Max bid offer on one which doesn't expire for three days. In the meantime another item exactly the same turned up with a Buy Now price of my maximum bid on the first item, and a Make an Offer. So I made an offer, didn't I? $50 cheaper than my max bid on item one, and guess what? Yep, offer accepted.

The reserve on item 1 hasn't been reached though I am the highest bidder, and I know my max bid will be above the reserve, so I'm soon gonna have two sets of clubs winging their way across the Pacific!

Duh!

Binos, there is a facility to cancel your bid, or even contact the seller and ask him to do it.
