    Heh, yeah, didn't even think of that!

    > stunning car and no reserve? that's couragious

    I figure ebay's a good value finder, and tends to favor the seller, so I don't think it's too risky. I've had several good take-it-off-ebay offers already, but I'm just going to let it go to the end I think.

    > you the end auction early if it doesn't reach it?

    I dunno what it will hit, maybe $190K? Who knows, for sure? Nope, I want to sell it this week, so it's going to be sold one way or the other <grin>.

    > gorgeous car! why sell it?

    I just don't drive it very much. We have really small spots at my work, so I'd be scared about getting dinged, so, best case, I only drive it once or twice a week, and that's kinda crazy.

    > Beautiful car, i hope you're replacing it with something else

    I actually ordered an Ariel Atom 2 today. I won't feel bad about parking that anyway, and it's a little farther along the impractical scale. It's really ugly, though.

    Yeah, think of it more like a motorcycle than a car? Like you can't drive it in any weather that you wouldn't drive a motorcycle, and you are similarly exposed. But it should be fun and I won't always be scared to park anywhere.

    > allow me to participate in a price discovery process

    Go for it, my friend! <grin>

    Actually, as an aside, ebay sure brings out the crazies. I've had several buy-it-now offers for the great, amazingly price of almost $30K! I had to subtlely explain that this was early in the auction process, and while I couldn't be 100% sure, I did think the car would eventually go for a little over that.

    "But, that's $10K more than it's at right now," they would exclaim! I took the time to explain that the price does tend to go up as the auction continues - I think they were very disappointed. I guess I would be too, if I couldn't get a 360 for $30K.

    Now that the price has gotten up there a bit, I think the goofy folk will go bid $20K on a McLaren or something.

    My guess is it should sell 170-180K. Black interior has a smaller audience. Good luck.

    Sorry! Forgot to answer - nope, it's sitting in my garage.

    Yeah, that's possible. I like the black way, way more than the tan, personally, though.

    Well, then i think you might have a problem... Since August of 2004, someone has been trying to sell your car, every month, up until the end of March of this year...

    Huh - they must have forgot to cancel the ad. I'll send them an email.

    Man, I wish I could get that!

    Their only response was:

    "I just took a look and your car is not listed on Ferrari Market Letter, it hasn't been for a while now."

    Down to the last days of the auction - had an offer to trade for some persian rugs today...
