RE: [T3] A rare one is up

Im certainly not saying that you would, intentionally anyway, but its
possible that the inexperienced Ebayer would think it was 356.
I just looked at the setup for the search engine that my buddy Matt gave me
for searching for Radios, and there are probably 3 dozen excluded words that
I wasn't even aware of!  I guess this is why I don't see the Ad's that have
other things in the description but that there are a lot of them.

Ive never spent the time to really see how Ebay works in the details, I was
always afraid Id get hooked.

A beer is a good start.

I would never sell it to a an individual whom thought it was something it 
was not. At the least to save my feedback. More of a went to buy a snow cone

but left with a bannana split.
