Yes....$6.65 actually, don't forget the $5.65 to "mail" it to me. I doubt it will go through but I couldn't resist trying.:noidea:

Any members out there in the legal field....I may need help with this one.:lol:

Wow. That'll be a good story if you do get it. Heh, $7 Caddy. And at least you have a phone number.

If this goes through, it'll be the best deal since the Dutch bought Manhattan.

I figured it would make a good story even if it didn't go through. I don't know the rules etc. on deals like this. I would think if it was listed no reserve I should at the least be the owner where it sits. In that case I could have to pay shipping. If any Ebay experts or attorneys out there I would be interested in input. From the purchase of my Talisman I learned that the buyers protection company works to cover any expense that the misrepresentation of the seller costs. In my case it was sold as title provided and the seller couldn't get a clear one due to owing the Cal. DMV more than he sold the car for. They payed for the bonding on the title for the value of the car.
If the same applies here even if I have to hire transportation to my home they may cover it.

Worst case I am out $7.00 for a little fun!

Couldn't resist trying? That's funny. I'll give you $100 If you get it. Not everyday you can say you made 100 times your investment on a car.

Call the guy and ask when he'll be shipping out your coupe deville. I think he's gonna need a lot of bubble wrap or a huge protecto pak for that car. LOL

Congratulations on your purchase. I really got a good laugh just reading the listing.
I see by your profile update that you are optimistic, though :)

Great buy! But like a lot of things we collect, the box to keep it in will cost a lot more!

I tried to post a reply but I don't see it. What I said was: Mebbe you could've got a different color one for perhaps $5.75?? Buena Suerte, Amigo. When you are older I may tell you about my $1.00 '78 Sedan DeVille. BC

Love it!

So far I sent a note to the seller telling him I sent payment by paypal but ebay still shows it as not paid and ask him to look into it and see if there is anything he can do on his end. No response. (The reason it shows as unpaid is because he hasn't claimed the payment I submitted.) I must wait 2 more days before I am able to file a claim with ebay, but I am sure they will just tell me to cancel the payment.

Call the dudes number and be like "where's my car? I won it fair and square for $7 shipped. I want my coupe deville!"
