Their ads don't bother me NEARLY as bad as the 17.95 shipping for a 2 dollar part.That is where the real crying shame is.
And over 200 bucks for kevalar bands for a 26-7 T,rediculas when the better venders show a much better price and better shipping cost.

I usually use the settings to search for "used" parts unless I am specifically looking for something "new".

I just skip over all of their stuff, even though it's boring to look at all of it. The one that interests me is previously owned. A NOS part can be previously owned, and still be new. In that case NOS is a must.

I too set my saved search for just used parts and only in the Vintage car and truck parts section;
https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?LH_Pref ... es&_sop=10
You can still look at new parts by checking or unchecking the boxes in that at section. When you open the link above, save it to ether ebay saved searches or your computer bookmark page.

If you set one of the CONDITION PARAMETER parameter to USED that will eliminate a lot of useless stuff. There are several FILTER options on the left side menu you can use OR try setting up them in ADVANCED SEARCH

My eBay search criteria for Model T parts is:

"model t ford" -fits -fit's

I also select a filter to exclude the sellers:

macs-auto-parts
johnnylawmotors
ecklersautomotive
whiteracingproductsllc

If another seller tries to overwhelm the search engine with their ads, I won't hesitate to add them to the exclude list. :)

I also set my page to view the highest number not lowest. So each page for me is 200 items not 50 or what ever the lowest number is.
