Default Trying to sell my car...

So, I'm trying to sell my 1994 SSEi and still haven't had any luck. I've posted about it on here and the Northeast Bonneville Club forum and even Craigslist.

What are some other good places to post my car up for sale?

I would do that but the gas line is leaking so the car can't be moved.

I sold a car on eBay in 23 hours....

of course eBay is not free. But it is an option that'* worth a shot.

Is there anything else wrong with the car besides the gas line that you think may be hindering the sale?

How long have you been trying to sell it on here? I listed my 94 SSEi on here and it took quite some time before I finally sold it, and it had a huge underbody rust problem, but it sold. It might just take more time until you find the right buyer.

Yeah, I've considered eBay but it'* sort of a last resort.

There are other things wrong with the car that definitely could be hindering the sale. However, I figured it was an easy fixer upper for the price.

I've started a new thread in the general chat. http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ic.php?t=97688

How about CarSoup? I think it costs 25.00 for an ad that runs until you sell it. You can post a bunch of pics with the ad. Worked for me.

or autotrader.com. that'* a good website, but they charge more than carsoup.

IIRC, it'* $25 for a basic ad (no pics, limited wording), $40 (one pic, some words), and $50 (many pics, lots of text).

Success rate of selling on here is very low. If it'* something someone is actively looking for your style/year range, and within a day or two driving it can work out sometimes.

What price do you have it set at?

As others said, the pay places seem to do the trick. I found my '93 on Autotrader fwiw.
