Or simply do something like this http://www.gtquattro.com/GarageSale.html  my garage
sale list is seriously out of date and needs to be re-inventoried, but you get the idea.
I'm sure he can find somewhere to post a simple HTML or document page - most providers
have that now.  Then put the link in a Marketplace ad that lists the link and perhaps
the latest car or a few of the "highlights".  Ad could say something like "Many good
used parts including mondo engine from Ultra rare Auber Quat.  Much more posted at

If I had to list all the parts separately, it would kill the server and overflow peoples
inboxes - even with the digest!

Unfortunately, I have to agree. Glen needs to spend a few bucks, and create a website to
list the tons and tons and tons and tons of stuff he's selling. Individual posts for
every little item (and there are a lot) are WEAK. IMO, this seems applicable in this
case, given the volume of items that he is offering.

Do one post, build a website, promote your business there and spend the time updating
that site. I suspect if he was using "old media" like the classifieds in the local
newspaper (and paying $50 a pop per ad), he'd come up with one ad for all his stuff.
Chris at Force 5 is a fine example of what I'm talking about. He does it right. Could
you imagine if Chris listed every damn part he has for sale in the marketplace???? 

The problem is, Glen falls someplace between Chris and you or me. But from the looks of
it, it's time to step it up, Glen! And if you don't want to do a site, one post with a
list of everything you have (bullet point-like, ya know), rather than multiple posts of
everything, might be a nice way to go.

However, I think you should look at this as an opportunity. Your VERY OWN WEBSITE! Wow!
Who knows how many millions you might make? (ok, $50 would be nice) ;-)

everyone here)
