Gold Plated Cup Holders on Ebay...
#1282006 - 07/19/06 08:11 PM

...or you'd think so by the current bid. Opening bid was $2.50, and it's up to $61 as I type this.

Hurry! Only 7 hours left!

Pretty Proud o' These, aren't we?

yah not one of you CEGers is smart enough to do that are you? Or evil enough to jack the price on premium cup holders for $65? I would buy em for $10 then go buy that pre98 console.

Not the first time cup holders have gone for "big bucks". When I had my 95 I had a broken cup holder and never replaced it. At the time I think the dealer wanted around $80. Now they are out of stock. They are very flimsy.

Also impossible to find in the junk yard, either already broken or have been removed.

You subject line is misleading. I've been looking for a gold plated cup holder. I'm disappointed. I would have added it to my other useless things collection.

Actually I was thinking more in line with the uslessness of a mink lined jock strap.

Wow, that's sad considering a junkyard let me have a pre98 cupholder (Double Cupholder, In PERFECT condition) for $5...

I might start pulling more if I ever see perfect cupholders.... Or combine 2 and make one perfect... Good business there
