Saw this on E-bay last night. Read the verbiage to and look at one picture to see why this post is titled this way.

I am not the seller, know the seller and hope he/she is not a member of this group.

A $150 minimum bid for a model bus that hit the floor? Yikes - I can only imagine how much they would have asked for if it was mint.

Dear RB:

Several years ago someone put up a Bob Garret custom model of a Liberty Lines MCI-Classic. It was smaller than this model. Probably about 18 inches in length. That went for, if memory serves me, about $700. No telling what this would have been.

Now for $ 170 ( 150 + 320 s/h) you get damaged goods. Go find someone who can fix it for you. I can only think of two people that might have the skill, if they want to take on the job. $170 + shipping + their fee + shipping back will be prohibitive.

Just saw that the bidding ended on the item. One fellow bid $176.00 and was outbid by someone who was willing to go to $178.50 or higher
