It's finally come down to parting out dash clocks!
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1872159425
$36 for the knob??? Luckily I don't need it, but I've seen a few clocks without knobs go for more than $100 recently. Obviously the sellers have figured out they can remove the knobs, and the suckers will have to come back for a second hit

That is absolutely asinine ... for a dash clock

I can understand auctions for a shaker or ram-air setup, rally pac, or original consoles, but a clock knob? Sheesh

I have thirteen used hog rings for the drivers seat if anyone wants them. Only 10 cents each.

With more money invested in my car than I care to admit, I could see it. If it is something you "need" to complete that phase of restoration or is a hard to come by part, that is money well spent. I find little to be amazed about on ebay any more, but do like to see these obscure parts go for big bucks. Nice find, thanks for posting it for us.

It is ridiclous, but if it was one of the few things I really needed to complete the carI would buy it no matter the price. Been there , Done that.

I hear ya. Like they say, if someone's willing to pay it, it's not overpriced. (I do personally find the prices on a lot of this stuff ridiculous and I'm not willing to pay it).
