They all fantasize about the holy grail of NOS: a Chevy dealer that closed in '69 and hasn't been touched since-still a car on the showroom floor. It will go down someday and make headlines. Don't ask.

Sounds like a AMC store in NC I keep hearing about.

99% of the stuff advertised by eBay sellers as "NOS" (New Old Stock) isn't; it's NORS (New Old Replacement Stock). Those new to the hobby get mesmerized by the "NOS" term, buy the stuff, then find out it isn't quite like an original part and it was made last year. You have to know what you're looking for, unless you're building a "catalog car".

The "old" often means different things to buyers than it does to sellers. Buyers may expect a perfect original part, but some sellers expect easy money from  some sucker. As usual, Buyer be very aware.
