Sold on BaT
« on: May 30, 2020, 10:53:13 AM »
....for hard to believe money, but I guess if you're trying to finish that half million dollar restoration on your 356 Speedster, you'd pay whatever it takes, like this guy did. $13,356!  For a freakin tool kit!

Geez, at that kind of crazy money I can see people making fake old tool kits.

On the subject of completed auctions, did anyone else receive an email today from BaT called “BaT Market Snapshot: May 2020“?   It boasted and bragged about the top selling cars including a Ferrari for $390K, a ‘60s Ford station wagon for $48K, and an Amphicar for $59K among other sales. 

Maybe I’m a clueless fool, but if you’re sending a mass email out to thousands of potential buyers  shouldn’t you be focusing on incredible bargains? And not the way overpriced stuff?

I did get this email, I didn't bother to open it. My guess is they are focusing on getting people to list their cars by showing how much money they (the sellers) can make? Or maybe how successful they are at selling?
