Gasoline Alley Antiques

Post  roddie on Mon Mar 06, 2017 6:36 pm

Anybody ever do business with these people? I stumbled across the site this evening while doing a random search. They list some vintage model stuff.. including some Cox items. The page is updated regularly (Mid-Feb as of this day). They list two 1979 56-page Cox dealer catalogs in the "books/magazines/misc." section (bottom of page) that would seem like a cool thing to have.

They must be photo challenged, ya think they can spare a picture.
The Prop Rod description is wrong, the act like they know but don't,never delt with em though.
Never mind just found the photos, coming off of three days of morphine and onto oxycodone not myself lately

Well now, they are a "speciality" seller. They sell special things to special people based on the PT Barnum premis " There's a sucker born every minute"  I laughed my AO looking at the descriptions and then the pictures of the Cox GT 40's .....this one has a clear windshield! WOW!!  Popcorn Damn!  Although they look like they were painted by a 8yr old, I don't think the paint would withstand the output of the mighty 049 power plant!  oMG the prices!!

They want $300 for an RC Shrike?? I picked one up on eBay a few months back for $40, looks better than the one they show.

It's not all bad, some of the wood kits are ok. Some unique stuff as well. I suppose we get a little negative from time to time. Thanks for posting the link Roddie.

Roddie,
Please, no need to apologize! I liked the link, enjoyed seeing the items and descriptions. It's nice to know they're "out there". Use them as a reference when I want to sell my models at twice what I paid for them and be 50% lower than their price. Like the person who just paid $72  for that Pinto parachute.

They don't show what those Cox Parts catalogs look like, but I'd bet they're just like what we have here on CEF instruction sheets.

Nobody responded to my post link to a local CL post of a guy trying to sell a unopened Guillows P40 kit for $300. ....buyer beware? lol!
