Chinese Ebay

I was scanning Ebay and came across a three gauge pod sold by "Auto Accessories World", allegedly located in the US.

I asked the seller about the dimensions and got an answer from someone named Lee Mei Yee! All of the answer was in metric and the surrounding Ebay screen appeared to be in Chinese!

Now they're taking over Ebay?

As always it's buyer beware. The Chinese are putting out a whole bunch of very cheaply copied parts including very porous copies of Edelbrock intakes that are highly polished but brittle and will crack if over torqued.

Personally I try to stay away from anything made in China or France. Neither of those countries is out to do the US any good (especially France, they've already shown that by giving Sadam intelligence about US military plans prior to and during the war). The Chinese of course can't be trusted either.

I thought eBay scrapped eBay China? or maybe that was ebay Japan? at any rate I think one of the two has been ditched b/c there is a local competing auction site....so yes, buyer beware. Maybe while you're browsing you could stop by *.com

That's what I am saying. I also wish they would rid our country of the communist workers unions here. Teamsters etc., are the United States communist party. They are responsible for America not being as competitive as it was. That is was sends work overseas.

well i wouldn't call them the american communist party while i dont always agree with where they are i do think that in certain circumstances they are a good thing.

as to unions causing high prices.. i have seen plenty of instances where a company will simply pocket the extra money they earn from their prices

if you were to vote a union out of a company i would bet a paycheck that the prices of the company would not go down significantly. and surly not enough to compete with $2 per day overseas labor.
