    With a “Buy It Now price of $3.50 it hardly seems worth the trouble for the seller.

    I remember seeing this one the other night !

    I did'nt bother reading the description 'till now. When I glanced at it I THOUGHT it was a " carving " of a plane, NOT the plane ! That said I was thinking he did a pretty good job on it.

    I worked with a girl at the railroad that was very odd to say the least. She had issues, but also a major ebay account. One time got the "oddest ebay items of all time" award...She was like number 3 on the list. Her odd item...an empty box! As I said she was odd and so were the blooming idiots that bid on it. She got like 5 bucks for it. Yep an empty card board box!!
    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"

    Not the oldest thing ever on eBay. Watched a documentary about eBay the other night. It was mentioned that once, a personally autographed color photograph of Jesus Christ sold for $13,000.00 and had a couple hundred bids.

    For those of you who read fast, read that again.

    It looks like it was raised from the Titanic wreck site.

    Or maybe it was used to build Noah's Ark.
