You can buy anything you want on ebay...

Correction: You can try to sell anything you want on ebay...

That said, I am somewhat guilty of doing this myself once. Bought a pair of running shoes that hurt my feet so much that I relegated them to the back of the closet after the 7th or 8th run. A runner friend suggested that I put them on eBay, so I did... got something like half of what I paid for used running shoes with 20-30 miles on them!

Used rocker arms are awesome! They're "seasoned" and broken in. Usually I have to pull them at the junkyard but it's easier if someone does it for me and offers them on eBay. You make way more power with the heat-treated/seasoned rocker arms. Also timing chains are too tight from the factory, you want worn-in timing chains for correct timing and reduced camshaft wear.

Thanks for the laugh!

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books.

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
