yeah I agree. Beautiful car, and for a 96 the mileage isn't even that bad. But why is there no reserve......I smell a rat.

"Tail Lamp"

One of the tail lamps or one of the license plate lamps is burned out or has corroded terminals.

The last time I checked, like 11:30 Sunday morning, the price had jumped to +$2500 dollars, still underpriced, but its beginning to make sense now. List low and let the bidding wars begin.

If I lived in the US, I'd be all over that car....

Mebbe so, but what'* the story with this little disclaimer here, from the listing:

This business about titles not being "available when [we] purchase them"; what'* that all about? Even if there'* a lien on the title, what they should have is a copy of the title that shows somebody (e.g. bank, credit union) as a lienholder, shouldn't they? And why are they "purchasing" a car that they're already selling on eBay? Does it really kill them to wait until they've got the paperwork straight before advertising it for sale again?

If I was really paranoid, I'd wonder whether they're just giving themselves 10 days to cash your check and skip town before you start seriously asking where the car is...
