We parted after 8 yrs and 2 months. One day in the future (fingers crossed) I hope I can be the proud owner of a Corvette again and be part of that family. :z


Mark: Ouch........that must of hurt. :cry After the car was gone, I sure hope you didn't go in the house & start listening to some sad "Country" tunes, or worse yet, some REALLY SAD "Blues" :cry ;LOL

Dave: :Steer

It really was weird seeing the car pull away when the new owners left. It was something I never felt. Its weird knowing its not in the garage anymore.

Mark,

I checked out the "sellers" portion of ebay last night. It confused the HECK out of me. There was a percent, but no more than this $$$$ for everything.

I just wanted to see a clear concise chart or list for the cost to place an ad, but it escaped me.

How did you come out on the costs and fees side of the selling?

69myway- Ebay charges a entry fee which is $40 for auto's.Then after the car sells they get a percentage. My car sold for $8250 and I had to pay $145. Not bad since the whole world see's it.

Heah Mark,
Did you sell it on Ebay motors or as just a straight up auction??On Ebay motors if would have you list mileage,color vin ect and should have only cost you $40.00 to list and $40.00 if it sold.If you use the straight up method they work a percentage on you!!I bought an 81 last summer for my wife and did some cleanup on it but was too much car for her so sold it on Ebay a couple months ago and paid a total of $80.00.If it doesn't sell the first listing then you can relist for $40.00 but they will refund that money if you sell it the second listing!I sold it for $6900.00 (In March 2003)and ended up being sold to a local guy so I will most likely see it around sometime!
Luckily I wasn't too attached to the 81 as I still have my 80 and that ain't going nowhere as have too much sweat equity in her as well as a thin back pocket!
The thing about Ebay is most folks don't get to look at what their getting and the few I did look at weren't really as described.
I bought a 76 El Camino out of Maryland that was listed with alittle rust on floorboards and alittle in the bed.Well my foot would fit thru the floorboard and there was only half the bed left so I guess he was just talking about the floor that was left had alittle rust on it.
Don't get me wrong I like Ebay but there are some shady sellers on there as well.I pay close attention to their feedback if getting used parts ect.
