    Not only he starts the bidding at 60K but also puts a reserve???

    Without mentioning the facts that he thinks his car has 8 cylinders and that he doesn't know how to spell the word "car"...

          Doesn't Ebay charge a percentage of the reserve on a reserve price auction?

          Say his reserve was $60K. I believe they charge 1% of that.....so he is paying at least $600 to list an item at a price it will never sell for..... Actually, it might be 2%...not sure....

          Or am I missing something?

            ^^^ Reserve fees are usually flat fees at the time you list. Should the item sell, then he would be charged a percentage. You are correct in the fact that he would pay big bucks if someone actually met reserve.

            Either way last I checked it was about $100 to list a car.

              Isn't this the one that has been on the autotrader forever. Pics seem awfully familiar.

                I would have to agree with Vazbro and the gang.

                There is something wrong with the picture.

                I bought my car with roughly 25K on the clock in 95, that reservoir tank was still white as could be. You know how long it took for the reservoir to turn yellow like that in the pic. It should be gleaming white like his washer fluid reservoir.

                I would have to question that.

                      It was a no sale on ebay...zero bids (not unexpected).

                          It would be interesting to see how high the bidding would go if the owner started the bid at $1.00. He/She can keep the reserve at 65K, I'd just like to see what someone would be willing to pay for the car in a true auction setting.

                            auctions usually don't end as high with reserves anyways. Usually, it's more risky but also more profitable not to put a reserve. Unless there is only one person willing to reach it.
