Default Re: Dumbest Reproduction Parts

I know that many repro parts aren't as good as originals, but sometimes the repro parts will suffice until a good original can be found. Looking at the price of repro parts, I don't imagine there is tons of margin there. That along with all the operating costs, all the returns and other BS, the only way the parts vendors can do decent business is to find the best part than can be produced at a marketable cost... and sell a decent volume of it. I'm thankful that so much repro stuff is available, otherwise I couldn't keep my A's on the road. Making or finding parts would take too much time and money.

That being said, in the spirit of the original post, there is some stuff out there that makes me think, "Why would anyone buy that?"
