if you want to be accurate
just follow the time line
Etown came 5 years before Carlisle
they just copied what Richie Nap did
put the credit where it belongs...
if it wasn't for Richie and his success none of it would of ever happened..

I think I see your point finally, you are a "Socialist" you want everybody have every thing they want and everyone should help or give to them.
the difference between Socialism and Capitalism is as Socialist you are required to do or share certain things and Capitalism is where you have choices and free will. that's just the simple version.
since I believe you have missed the point by a mile or two I'll try to make it simple for you to understand my statements as I intended for them to be understood.

in the beginning approximately late 70's you couldn't hardly get a parts man at a dealership to even look up parts for you let alone order for you ,their only interest was in newer parts. then came Frank Mitchel an enthusiast and entrepreneur and or someone similar . the only Major advertsement was hemmings motor news which lasted for about ten good years, the word had spread and more people found that there are cars and parts still available , then came mopar collectors guide with not only advertising for hobbyist and professional vendors, but articles of interest and stories that encouraged even more interest, then came others such as the round-up , auto trader and im sure others that I do not recall. those that I mentioned earlier were the pioneers of our hobby and industry. not all those people are perfect in your eyes and im am sure that there maybe some weight to your opinion but not totally . in your mind you think that the hobby would been here with out them. Well you might be right but I doubt it or at least not to the level it has achieved . then came the internet and ebay . Imo there is where the real problem starts not just our hobby but every aspect of your life . but it is a double edge sword and as in everything the bad comes right along with the good.
Back to the subject... if you can't follow the time line see how those people mentioned before made an impact on the "hobby" or industry then the word " incorrigible " comes to mind. I am grateful of their participation and insight and financial investment that made it possible for me and others to have our dream. It is not their responsibility to make it affordable for everyone although that is where repro comes in and as the supply diminishes the price usually goes up with the Nos or original used parts .

Do I believe that that prices are always reasonable ... No is the short answer but at least it s available if want it, and then there is always repro.
That is my point.

I don't need GLNOS and never will, I have found what I have needed from others for FAR less at a FAIR price.

Little Detroit you sound like you believe most of their stuff is priced fair with some parts being high. what parts are fairly priced ? I have never seen any.

If Little Detroit and Delbert think GLNOS is God like and want to worship them ok, I wont.

The tent of terror is just that, I mean come on, over a grand for windshield bottle res. they are greedy and that's a FACT.

This is a perfect example of the stuff they carry from show to show and no sale. I saw these at Carlisle 2 years ago. As a matter of comparison I bought 2 of these NOS for 40.00 at Carlisle. Did I get a steal ? sure but 1500.00 for 4 is Crazy. BTW their description is wrong, these were not used in 1969.

And this is why I didnt drop specific names, it makes people with alot of good attributes targets for negativity. The internet seems to do that. And im sure these guys have helped far more then they hurt, no one forces them to pay there prices.

I posted this initially because I have a guy wanting a few things and was just looking for some feedback.

Ive five nice mopars, one hemi b body, a v code 70 cuda and some lessor cars and myself have never had to visit the more well known guys and there prices for parts. Some people piss there money away in bars, some on cars and parts and that was me growing up, I simply loved mopars since I was 13 and for some reason knew things wouldnt be available forever so I became a hoarder.

I have never attended a big mopar event because ive had no reason to.

My car and parts will mostly goto my nephews when I die and as unpopular as it may be ive been sorting parts and junking alot.

Ive tried to give parts away and its still a load of grief.

So for me, I stay out of the rat race and the way this has turned out just reaffirms to me im doing the right thing for me.

I should of quoted the deleted Dilbert post. I really saw nothing extreme about it, just his opinion.

How does this turn into a Psing contest again on moparts. You price your NOS parts by gathering information from other sales and by asking on Moparts in the WIW and other sites. If you end up pricing it to high you have it for sale or drag the parts to shows year after year. If you are looking for a quick sale price it lower but that does not always mean people want the parts at your price or even that part. You can always put a big price on it and hope someone pays the price. There is never one person that has the last NOS piece in the world yet. You can find someone else with the same NOS part usually because mopar owners are hoarders. I also find that very few want to spend the time to use their own hands to rebuild a part, its all shipped out of house to be fixed or rebuilt. As for Adair and Mitchel both were good and bad for the hobby. They were gatherers of mopar parts and sometimes were crafty businessmen to acquire these parts. Sometimes dealing with them you had to keep an eye on the dealings. I would look at their parts in person and decide if it was worth my time to keep looking and trust some part on the net that was not in my hands to look at to make sure it was NOS or even nice. Yes both had prices very high but you don't have to buy the part if the price is considered to high. I always like to take a spin around the Adair Tent just to see what they had for sale. Some cool stuff was always under the tent. Mitchels Warehouse was another museum that was worth the price of entry.

That's a rhetorical question, right?

IMO, price is in line. And should sell at or near that with not much trouble
