Need info: Marti report, VIN, photos, description.
Hate to burst your bubble, but- unless you have a rare, big block type model, $35K is way high for today's market.

Would be helpful to post a link to said thread regarding car for sale. Pics too please when you can. Marti report too.

Neil is right, too much $.

ISO well behaved, dependable, and determined CS.

I thought the ending ebay bid was very generous. Suggest you put it in classic auto trader see what happens.

Things are slow including sale of cars.

Good luck, Randy

+1. If the car wasn't put on by a friendly person from here, I would have guessed the bids to be suspicious.

I am not one to say never, but it sounds like time is not on your side. If you had all the time in the world, you could hold out to get what you want, but unfortunately you are too far upside down on the car.

Don't feel bad. Many people have done the same as you when it comes to restoring these old buggers.

Good to hear your positive thinking.

I already know that I will never, ever get back what I have put into my car, but I also know that if I needed some quick cash, it is still better to have my car to sell, then many of the other toys I have treated myself to that are worth $.02 on the dollar.

I'll be following your thread in hopes of a positive outcome.
