EBAY - Round #2.

I decided to relist the Evo on EBAY.  It's pretty easy since I already ran the ad, I can pretty much copy all the same settings via the old ad and just make some tweaks where necessary.  So I modified the wording a bit, altered the price, etc.  This will only run for 7 days; so it'll expire next Thursday 8/30.

Started it out at $5k this time.  1 day already and 250+ views, 6 watchers and 1 initial bid.

Ebay Auction - Did NOT sell.

The Ebay auction ended around 9:30am CST with the price not meeting the reserve.  We really did not think the car would sell on Ebay, at least not with the first auction listing but thought it was worth a shot to stir up and gauge some interest. 

In all we had 42 total bids with 20 watchers and 2371 total views.

Next step is to decide whether to relist the car or not on Ebay.  Perhaps with a tweaked price, ad wording, pictures, with the trailer, who knows.  In the meantime we still have it appearing in a few magazines along with several different forum listings.  There has been a slow but steady stream of inquiries about it, and finding the right buyer for this more or less 'niche' car is the hard part!  I am confident the next owner will be very happy with their decision!

#929 Evo - Ebay listing Update!

Another update on the For Sale process on the #929 Evo.  I listed it on Friday 8/10 at .01 (yes, a penny) with a reserve and over the first 2/3 of the auction it has 1700+ views, 18+ watching and 36+ bids. I went in again and lowered both the Buy-It-Now price and the reserve in hopes it will sell quickly. The auction ends on Monday Aug 20th around 9:30am CST.

We've had a few new bidders enter in the past 2 days which I think is great news.  Bid early; bid often - someone is getting a terrific car and deal.  Don't forget, extra tires/rims and an 18' all aluminum trailer are also available!

#929 Evo - Listed on Ebay!

Update on the For Sale process on the #929 Evo. We've had some interest here and there in the car, both outright and a few trade offers as well as some showing interest IF I choose to fix up the damage. So I figured before I order new parts I'd list it on Ebay 'AS-IS' at a lower price; and lower reserve.

I listed it on Friday 8/10 at .01 (yes, a penny) with a reserve and over the first 1/3 of the auction it has 1100+ views, 15+ watching and 30+ bids. I've actually went in and lowered the reserve since in hopes it will sell quickly. The auction ends on Monday Aug 20th.

Bid early and often...

Evo Cage / Interior Pics

I was taking some updated shots of the Evo Interior showing the cage and all for some of my For Sale posting and thought I would share them here.  Enjoy!

Back in late June, the #929Evo Team crested over 10,000 views here on the blog.  Thanks everyone for their help and patience along the way.  I hope people have enjoyed reading the good times and bad times here, along with the pics and vid posted.

At last look we're close to the 12,000 view mark, as the initial For Sale posting bumped up the exposure!  An update on that process has the Evo still safely resting in my garage with a few parties interested to this point.  In the meantime, I have been quickly unloading all the extra stock, parts, spares, OEM bits, fluids, tires/brakes/rims, etc the past few weeks.  That means lots of trips to the local Fedex store to be sure!
