    I've got a brand new d&a triple stage phantom.
    Original box and packing. Never used.
    I don't have a camera. $300. Cash only. Send it to my po box . Put the cash in a BIRTHDAY card. It'll get here no worries. I've sold items in this manner before. If you want to know what it looks like just doing online search for a triple stage Phantom. Look at the photos available and then imagine the one you're looking at being brand new. LOL!!! I'm being sarcastic of course. It's just odd when someone says they don't have a camera. $10 prepaid burner phones like tract phones at Walmart have cameras. Good luck with the sale. And a lot more luck to whoever sends this guy money. 73

    Even if the radio is in nice shape, we're neglecting one factor here.

    If I offer to sell you a Ranger pickup, you'll want to know the model year.

    The Saturn was made for a long time. The oldest ones had problems that the newest versions do not. Beside, the oldest ones are twice or more the age of the newest.

    It's not just the years, it's the miles, too.

    The serial number is the only thing that can help narrow down the question of "is it too old" or not.

    The very-oldest Saturn will probably have problems even if it only has 500 original miles on it. Quality of this model improved after about 1999. The oldest Saturns just didn't hold up as well, even after 10 or 12 years.

    Makes a big difference in the value the buyer will see in it.

    But you can include the serial number without a camera.

    Summerkamp. I hope you, and others don't take my reply as a personal attack on yo. My intention was and is to point out the fact that even though this site (WWDX) consists of a close knite bunch of people some have been misled, and even lied to when it came to purchasing an item.
    If you're going to attempt to sell something you must do your best to describe that item to the best of your abilitie.a
    And minum
    The photo is just the first step in
    I didn't want the seller to think I was picking on him.
    On the other hand it's an immediate red flag Imo when someone can't produce photos. Not having a camera yet being able to access the web is just not believable (nowadays.) A buyer needs to do their due diligence. And the first flag when looking at a piece of equipment being offered for sale is that the seller can't produce a photo with the excuse that he doesn't have a camera. I wouldn't expect anyone to purchase an item I was selling without minimally adding photos of that item. As a matter of fact I wouldn't Buy anyting without that seller Going the Distance to prove what he has is exactly as he's advertising, and describing it to be. I've only sold a single item ever. It just so happened to be right here on this site. And if you're interested in taking the time to see what I went through in order to prove what I was selling was exactly as described. You might understand why I would be skeptical of someone who couldn't produce a photo yet has internet access. A $10 TracFone (burner) at Walmart has a camera built-in to it. If I happen to be interested in an item the seller, would have to go beyond a photograph once I contacted him, and the seriousness of my interest in the item was established. I would want to see a video clip if I weren't picking up the item. I would expect the same of myself when selling something. I was not only detailed in my description but added photos, and videos of the item operating. If it's a long time member with a very good reputation when it comes to selling here on wwdx the description and a picture would probably suffice. There are many many many scamers out there looking to take people's hard-earned money (with little effort.) And unfortunately they usually succeed. Scam artists have plenty of time to wait. They usually have several sale postings on several different sites at one time. My sarcastic post was meant as a warning to those who may be newbies. I could safely say that all seasoned members are familiar with all the tricks that scammers seem to have in their bag. Trusting someone because they are selling an item on wwdx (or any site and happen to be a membe doesn't mean that they're honest. There's nothing wrong with being trusting. Being a trusting person nowadays can leed one and there money being parted with and having little or nothing to show for what was most likely hard earned cash.
    If you're going to try and sell an item without initially adding a photo then expect that one or more people are going to call you out when you use an excuse like I don't have a camera or my camera's broken. I would suggest to Future sellers "without a camera or a broken" one to either have there camera repaired, or borrow a phone or PC from a friend or family member that does have one. 73
