  • Funny ebay moment

    Just got a message from ebay saying a R2 Avanti I'd been bidding on had a Buy It Now added. Wow, I rapidly clicked on the link to not miss it, and saw the 42K BIN. Oh well.

            From the Q & A:

            Q: Where can I see the car, if it still for sale?
            Answered on Mar-12-08
            A: As of this moment, car is still for sale and worth every bit of $42,000.00!!!

                Very nice car but with about 3 hours left to bid I doubt it will make it anywhere near the BIN

                    Let's see if it ends up between NADA average and high retail. 21K and 32K.

                        This particular car does nothing for me, but how cool would it be to buy a car from, and speak directly to, the person who bought it brand new 40-plus years ago? I'd pick it up in person, video camera rolling[8D]

                        I've always wondered what people think when they have a car for many decades- especially when they bought it new- and then sell it? How many sell because they're in tough times and see no alternative, or because they have no attatchment but are looking to cash in big? Or does it just come time, after 40 years, to just move on?

                        I've known a few who feel they've gotten too old to enjoy or care for their car anymore, and sell for that reason. Sad but realistic
