I'm bumping the entire "CLASSIFIEDS" department!
« on: June 08, 2015, 12:55:51 AM »
Yes, I have such power that I can bump an entire sub-forum! But it's only because . . . well, I don't know why!  ???

It looks like no one has posted anything for sale since November, 2014. Nothing in the Classifieds department at all. (And after the first five 2014 posts, you're already into 2013. Talk about a low-traffic area of the BEA! )

I buy a lot of things online. I'd rather check here, and do business with others here, before going to other websites.

Doesn't have to be tit-related, folks. Surely we can make this into more of an ongoing garage sale, rather than the occasional offer of DVDs that we're afraid new girlfriends will find.

For example, besides offering things for sale, maybe we could post about things we want to buy?

Sounds like a great idea to me.
Someday, chi1dren, this entire fuck-up will be yours.

Craigslist, eBay, Amazon et al. are the death knell of little classified sections like ours. :(

But, per your suggestion: if anyone out there's got a Citroen Traction Avant in drivable (or almost drivable) condition, located somewhere in the continental United States (or perhaps even Canada or Mexico) for a somewhat better than market-correct price (i.e.: an actual bargain for an actual ready-with-cash buyer) by all means drop me a PM. ;) No kidding!

I've always wanted one of them ever since I first saw a dozen or so parked together in a little park just off the Thames about 20 years ago.

This is a bit rougher than I'd like, but if there were two like this with enough solid parts between them to make one good car, I might be game. ;)

Pal, that car is so pretty that even wrecked ones are used as art.  Seen in Hamburg, Germany:

Well, Hemmings has one in St. Louis for $33K, but I think you already know about that.

And I finally figured out what "traction avant" means.

That's gorgeous and the deep navy blue looks sublime, but while St. Louis is not too far, I'm in the market for more of a "driver" quality example at about half that price. :) Yes, while Citroen's Traction Avant wasn't the very first front-wheel-drive car per http://renoir.over-blog.com/article-who-ivented-the-front-wheel-drive-50960886.html it was one of the earliest, commercially-successful ones. :)
