If I had extra room for a car, I'd definitely want something like this.

I still don't see why it would get taken down. I've read a lot worse on there...

FWIW, I just got the bill from Ebay. It cost me $106 to:

1) List the car for 10 days with a $5,000 reserve (it didn't sell).
2) Relist the car for another 10 days with a $4,750 reserve (it didn't sell).

We got an email from them today that said they changed their pricing structure. It looks like it costs you a flat fee of $125 on the sale now (plus some other fees and stuff) instead of all that % of this % of that crap.

It was probably olderguy and he didn't want someone else buying it before he(mela) made up his mind.

Robert- My GF said that for your wifes next birthday you should buy her a tent and say "here is the extra garage space for your car". So, is she REALLY making you sell it because she wants space in the garage for the car she'll never even wash? lol

ebay fees for selling cars are utter bullshit. I sold a car on ebay once, it was a honda civic, the fee was $80, but I got $1500 for what I thought was a $300 car. it was a total pos, never underestimate a ricer he wanted to "restore" it

flagged again. Robert, what kind of exhaust manifold is that? I wonder if my wife would notice it if I parked it behind my shop and threw a tarp over it. It would look kinda funny pulling it on my 5x10 utility trailor.

It is a Megan setup. There are always 50 of them for sale on Ebay. Extremely cheap setup.
