Datsun 240z

For a number of years I had a 1973 Datsun 240z, and a 1978 280z 2+2 parts car. Here you will find some of the posts and videos from those two cars.

How not to sell something on Ebay

So last weekend some of the items I sold on Ebay for the 240Z ended. Well I shipped the last item off today, and I'm pretty sure, because of how badly I estimated shipping costs, I didn't make a dime on the deal. If anything I lost money.

Tip: When selling something on ebay, always box it up, and weigh it before you start the auction. That way you can calculate proper shipping. Today I shipped off a box of interior parts that someone bought for .99 and paid $15 for shipping. I had to pay $65 to ship the damn thing because the box I had to use was so big.

Lesson learned.
