Default Buying Bonnevilles and Grand Prixs on Ebay.

I see some cars on ebay i like but goingabout purchasing them looks confusing. I see 3 GPs that say starting bid is a 100 dollars. If i win is this all I pay?

Can someone help me out here? I am on my way to work but when I get back, I am going to sign on to ebay and see what happens. I really want a car , a nice car for a reasonable price.

the first GP that is the Mclaren Turbo as a reserve, that means the car will not go to the highest bidder of a certain price is not met, the other 2 GP go to the highest bidder

the white 95 has no reserve

the 01 has a BIN of 14,000

and the black 92 SSEi has a locked up motor

Yea... If it says reserve, then it won't usually sell for under that (occasionally there are ways around it *looks at 93 SSEi in garage* but usually not. the 4th bonneville, the 95 SSE has a reserve in the mid $3k'*, as i was interested in that one before he relisted it.

Found this ONE which would be a decent deal for someone in MN. I would be all over it if it was in NY.

Just for the record, the black 95 grand prix isn't a GTP.

Can you tell because it just has a 3.1L not a 3.4? Did all the GTPs (pre '97) have 3.4 liters?

The GTPs from that year have the 3.4 DOHC, FE3 suspension and have hood louvers. They also have no badging on the doors and only say GTP on the back. If mine wasnt covered in snow I'd take a pic.
