Listing is ended already!

Did someone buy it or was it retracted - inquiring minds want to know!

Salut

Dunno - but there's a lot of backroom bargaining. A forum member had an RFI spark plug cover that I bid on and which ended suddenly. Conversely I expressed interest in an item to somebody and it was put on eBay before I finalised the sale and was then removed.

IMHO the high eBay fees, and rarity of course, are responsible for these manoeuvres.

That's been for sale for a year or so now, but the last time I saw it the price was $85k.....and it's missing a lot of the impossible-to-find original stuff.

No tooth fairy either!

Some sort of scam I guess as the listing has completely disappeared now.

I reported it to the current sellers of the car North Shore Sports Cars & Norbert Bries had the eBay item removed.

If you are really interested in this car you will find it at http://www.northshoresportscars.com/used-inventory/Lotus-Elite-Series+1+Stage+3

I can only dream...

Another seller that won't put in the price. No price....no call.

Another favorite is "make an offer"........what is that? Just put the price.
Is it a mystery?
