I reckon that if they auctioned it it would possibly make more than the asking price but it would take a bit of courage to do so.

Just noticed - Shame it's being sold my someone with such poor feedback - think I'd be suspicious

The eva sa 'umble Mini Van, my first car. Mind you, it was not in such fine condition, came from 1962 origins and went at least 1 mph faster after I had 'modded' it!

It certainly did corner better with a hundredweight of spuds in the back though. Turned over and written off by a 'friend' of mine in 1973. My next Mini lasted me six weeks before I wrote it off on Friday 13th July 1973.

Well, either they're getting fed up with the offers they're getting on the classified ad, or someone else is trying to auction it......

Well if it is the same owners using 2 different accounts to sell the same item that's a very good way of getting the listings removed and sort of supports the poor feedback of the fixed price seller.
