I must be the odd duck then, since I check it just
about every day. Call it window shopping. I like
to see what my car is worth, and I like to see some
of the things I can't afford.

How would you handle interesting items that aren't
being sold by a lister? For example, hypothetically
suppose that a 5-speed V8 for only $2K showed up in
a newspaper ad. (Dang, missed that opportunity.)
Should the non-advertiser put that in the Audifans
marketplace? Or should they let the list know through
the list?

Just curious.
