Peter,

I found this too and got quite frustrated until I found a small note at the bottom of the page saying that I was testing a new search format and that if I chose not to participate in the testing I could click on the link which would take me back to the older version - hey presto, the Vintage Parts category popped up.

Nevertheless, if this is the way of the world and the tset version becomes the approved format we will all be facing much frustration. Hopefully the sellers in the Uk can make this clear to the Bozos in charge!

Paul Williams,
