Steve's Favorite eBay Experience:

"I love the joy of discovery and I’ve found some of the neatest things on eBay. In particular, my 40-year-old Ford Bronco is always in need of a spare part or two and the original inner door locking pins I recently bought couldn’t be located on any other automotive website."
