The $500K Essex


Dan Marx

Recommended Posts

He must have gotten some advice since it first went up. It was listed as an Esix in the title, I believe, with some other misspelling as I recall.

Boy, lucky that he was able to revise the listing title before he got a bid, because ebay won't let you change it then smile.gif

And notice there is a revision/addition where he says the price IS 500k. He must be getting lots of mail smile.gif

The part I like in the ad is where he says: "i don't know what to do with it"

I told him he was about $485,000.00 off of where the price should be and that his interior hardware is nickel plated....NOT STERLING SILVER. He probably won't post my comment.

When will people learn.....? It is this very type of listing that makes e-Bay rich. If you have a car that is worth $500K (or even $5K):

* Get it out of the garage and give it a bath

* Take the spare tire out of the back seat

* Take many high quality pictures of all aspects of the car

* Give more than a five sentence description

* Learn to spell (or use the free spell check on your computer)

* Research your item to get a understanding of its value

* Look at the odometer to find out the true mileage

Apparently another kid with B-J visions dancing in his head...

In all fairness the car is being sold without reserve. He wants to roll the dice and wait for a snipe at $750k or so smirk.gif
