Is this BS?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1985-...ht_2055wt_1167

This has to be a BS bidder? I cant see anyone paying 80K for a rebuild. Are any of these being sold in the US?

How many times a week does a Berkshire truck come up on the forum?

Pretty sure they never let a truck actually finish bidding - or at least that was the case a few month back.

I wonder what they mean by "PHYSICAL N.A.S. REPLICA 90"

Not much there that represents a NAS truck

Has anyone actually seen a Berkshire truck stateside in person? Why do they seem sketchy?

Not to mention that the 3***e bidder who bid $80k has a Feedback Score of 9, but 0% positive feedback - likely a username they set up to bid up their own items, and that the bidder who was up to $50k had 0 feedback and 0 positive feedback.

Was the truck ECR has on its website from BLR? The one they had to work on and fix. Not implying they had anything to do with it besides repairs.
