I like the color. The "really large girl" might contrast with it...

Q: Your car is really sharp, just what I have been looking for. Do you think that a really large girl would be able to fit in the back seat? My girl is huge but very horney, so gitting in the back is a must. If I bid and win I plan on gutting the car, installing a very tall lift and huge tires, would you be interested in buying back the spare parts after the change-over is complete? Sweet ride.
Oct-21-05
A: Thank you for your interest, whatever it may be. My advice to you is to BID the amount you feel the car is worth. At this time, however, I do not believe I am interested in any spare parts. Thank you again.

Dont forget the guy who asked if it has digital dash

Dude's greedy. Wouldn't let it go for over $9,200 I'm surprised it even got that high.

I like the guy that asks if he'll take 3 grand for it instead of letting it go to auction, retard.

Then there's the losers with $1000 and $1999 max bids...lol

3000 is laughable, it just got 39 bids and topped out at over 9g...

If I wanted another nice bird, I'd be willing to pay $7k for it. But, hey, if someone is willing to pay over $9k, then I think that's great!

Are there a lot of wierd questions asked of sellers on ebay, like this?

Night was dark, but the sky was blue,
Down the alley, the ice-wagon flew,
Heard a bump, and somebody screamed,
You should have heard just what I seen.

Who do you love?

The guys an idiot.

I would be overly thrilled if that was my car and the bids reached 9k. He would be making back almost half of what he payed for it.

So would I...but then my xr7 sport has 82k on it, the beginnings of paint fade and other small defects not to mention it needs UCA's and rear sway links. (it must of been garaged by the PO because florida's sun has killed the paint of most of the other ones around here, years ago...)

as for ebay, yea don't forget to make it have 12k on it, lol
