Just funning around here, this is not a dick-measuring contest.

I just realized that March 30th will be my 12 year anniversary. I used to have an Ebay ID before March, 1999 but when I got divorced, I opened a new account.

Anyone been on that piece of shit website longer than Mar. 30, 1999?

July 16th, 1999. Old School BMX is how I found eBay. When I was looking for that first Torker someone told me to look on eBay. I was like, "What's eBay?" It was fun in the beginning. Now it's just a monster.

i first joined ebay in spring 97 . but my first ebay account got hacked in 99 . and i started a new one in sept 1999 . been buying and selling the whole time . mostly vintage car parts and vintage hot rod magazines . i have really seen the car swap meets change since ebay took off . less good parts and less swap meet prices . but i still do well with it . and the thrill of the hunt is still there .

February 26, 2001.

I used to carry a list of about 100 records that were on my "to-find" list. I crossed the last one off within 9 months of having an eBay account. For me, it kind of took the fun out of collecting records. But that is when I started looking into vintage BMX stuff and I've never known collecting BMX without eBay around.

Feb 2000, probably checking on GI Joes (The big ones 60-70s).

I did sell some bass fishing lures on there.

Did not think about BMX till I happened to see by accident "Joe Kid on a Stingray" playing at Sportmart while killing time before tooth extraction.

It has been a fun ride back into bikes.

Now I am looking at early Broncos. :HitsFan:

August 7th 2004 is when I started the Smokin_Endo account and officially closed my Newguy1962 account. I tried to search for my old account but it's not showing up. I'm pretty sure it was 2000 or 01 but I was mainly looking for Japanese Lowrider Magazines and old airplane hydraulics...it wasn't until late 03 that I found old bmx. An old friend of mine saw an 86 pro performer F&F in my basement and commented on how all the parts to put it back together were on eBay

I think JMC has us all by about a year in fact I think Mark was on there before people used pictures in the auction description....like 97 or 98 ?

I had one before in 1999 (I don't even remember my original username),
but I started my current one
June 01 2000
.

I had one before - late 1999, but being inexperienced to auction sites — When I switched my email address from crappy AOL dialup to my own site's email, I lost track of my info And there went my ebay ID.

Started my current account in 2000 to buy some punk rock records, 70s/80s transforming robot toys, and some 87 Haro Master decals.

I remember the newguy1962 account. That's how I met you. I was trying to win an MCS Magnum you had on there.
