In defense of coralsnake sometimes you can't avoid such chicanery. If you boycott everything then you are left with nothing. Sometimes one has to hold their nose when using the store or utility.
"Low she sits on five spoke wheels
Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

People who use ebay should be able to get a discount for ebay piggy backing on the ad you are being charged for.
Hollywood calls it product placement and it's big money.

Subliminal advertising is illegal, and has been banned. However, they get around it with a tactic called 'product placement' in clear view. eBay has been declining for years. Their fees, and sellers have no 'rights', while scammers do. Just like our current society...wrong is right, and right is wrong.
Past owned Shelby's:
1968 GT-350--Gold
1970 GT-500--#3129--Grabber Orange.
Current lifelong projects:
1969 Mustang Fastback/FOX chassis, 5 speed, 4 wheel discs, with a modern Can-Am 494 (Boss 429), Kaase heads, intake with a 1425 cfm 'B' Autolite Inline carb, ala Trans-Am style
1968/70 Olds 442 W-30

You have to look in eBay motors (auto parts)

The ad is from eBay and for "guaranteed fit". Its also AAF

What about Walmart? Spotted in the pet section a couple days ago. Hey let's get the pets involved too.
