What's your thought on this Essential C3 Tool KIt?

Hi, I have been looking for years for the right tool kit that would fit in the storage compartment behind the passenger seat. I finally found one and had a handsome embroidered C3 Logo attached to it. I placed the item on ebay for slightly more than my wholesale cost me and have had no buyers. I'd like you to take a look at it and see what you think. Here is the Link: C3 68-82 Corvette Tool Kit with C3 Logo | eBay

Nice Gift Idea

That's a nice gift idea for a car owner and it could be useful too if the need arose.

On my older, no computer/electronics (not a Corvette) antique car, I carry various spare parts and the necessary tool kit to get me home.

Chinese??

Yes, I know what you're saying about Chinese made tools. When I was a kid they said the same about Japanese manufactured things. Thats all changed and so are these tools. They high quality good tools.

Ken -
I think you've done a great job on the kit - very cool. I think your target market is as a gift item and as a "nice touch" novelty item for someone's car. I don't know anyone with a C2 or C3 that actually carries any tools in the car out of neccessity: Any on-road failures with these cars are usually dramatic enough that you'd never be able to actually do anything about it with some wrenches and a pair of pliers alongside the road. Realistically, the tool we use is a cell phone with the phone number for the flatbed tow company, so I don't think you'll get many buyers from actual serious Vette drivers. But if my daughter gave me a kit like that for Father's day, I would proudly insert it in my Vette's compartment - I think that's where your market is.
