    cfmvw, the calculator that got you through school is priceless! This missing carb and beer is a tragedy!! I just shed a tear for those six brews that lost their lives and the carb that went MIA. That just sucks!

    56don, is right though. If you're shipping anything of value you really need to take great care in packing stuff properly because shipping companies will not treat your stuff gingerly.

  2. I received a Model A Roadster windshield frame with glass.... Well sort of.... It arrived with a forklift hole through the box and the part and had glass bits filling the bottom of the box!

    I've received new stuff wrapped in 1965 newspaper, makes ya wonder.

    I shipped a set of bare cylinder heads, bagged the head in a garbage bag, shot expandable foam into the box between the head and the box, buyer appreciated that one.

    I was selling some books and used soda case cardboard turned inside out to make light weight boxes. Buyer gave funny feedback on that about diet dr pepper.

    I'll step it up next time I sell something.

    I've gotten candy and other little bonuses. I can't eat candy but it's nice to know that someone went a little further than they had to. I've sent duplicates that I had of collectible Hot Rod and Motorcycle magazines as package padding.
