So I'm looking for a part SPECIFIC to a 75 Malibu i.e. Tail light.

Or specific to a 77 monte, or 73 Olds, or a 68 Mustang or WHATEVER.

You type in 75 Malibu your search and hit "enter".......

756 hits???? 22 pages of stuff??? What???

Pages and pages of edelbrock 600 carbs SPECIFICALLY for a 75 Malibu????, or 300 windshield wiper blades from "Autoparts Warehouse"???? AAAAARRRGGGHHHH.

So....you get more specific- "75 Malibu Taillight" in the search box.....

188 hits, 175 of those are frickin' lightbulbs!!!!! All from the same merchant who just listed them over and over and over agian.

So you filter out "new" and choose "used" or NOS

38 hits......all more BS not even coming close to the actual tail light housing you are looking for. You finally find ONE Head Bang in a "store" with a BIN of $260. Head Bang

EBay sucks.

I'm spoiled, and miss the days when it was just a bunch of car guys cleaning out the garage, or the salvage yard guy knocking down his inventory.

How the hell do these companies find the money to pay somebody to post a carb for sell and then list it as fitting EVERY FRIGGIN car that was ever built.. Blow Up YYYYYAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!

Okay, done, Sorry. Embarassed

Only thing I look at on eBay is just cars. I don't look at parts.

eBay is pretty much a bastard compared to what it used to be (even though I found my car on there *cough*). It really tests your search-fu to look for car parts on there anymore.

What about the cheap A$$ turbo kits and the million wheel tire combos and the
stupid racing seats . C'mon list one or two then just put it in applications in the description.

I'm not really looking for a tail light, just used that for an example.....

But, ironically, I did try that guy last year.., i won't go into the whole story, but if anyone is looking for a tail light, I'd look elsewhere.
