    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.

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

    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.

    Re: I just bought a 1970 CDV convertible, I got to get a bigger mailbox?!

    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.
