Obsolutely. I think the majority of car listed on BaT bring all the money. Of course if they are all correct and ready to go they should but a lot are not that way, it has to be the strongest place to sell a car right now.

Yet another Mini on BaT, this time a JDM 998 4 speed......good looking color, but I wonder why they didn't refinish the top and bottom dash rails to go with the rest of the color change?

Not the first Moke to be listed on BAT.  Not many come up though and it has been a while since the last one came up.  I think this is about the fourth.

That UK Moke at $29.5k i thought was strong money but that is what happens when 3 people are bidding. To be fair apart from the respray it was pretty original and nothing was welded or patched over and as they say they are only original once.

The Mini 30 looks nice and in good shape most i have seen have been rusty. This one has had paint on the A pillars so i am guessing the scuttle has been repaired. I have heard that the later flat windshield rubber likes to hold water which may be correct as the earlier cars were not as prone to rusting there.

This Inno raises a lot of questions, especially about rust, but the motor might be worth the whole car.......at no reserve it should be an interesting auction....but I can't see paying over $5K for it.

now at 15K... Somethings going on...
 Car is rough all around.. Sure it may work,.,. but Rivete'd side panels? Surface rust everything... How can a built engine  look as' rough' as it does.. Must be an older build from mr russell.. Thats fine.. but the bid price is up there

 Perhaps the Registration + pre SMOG requiremen issues in Californa  help this car more than the Whole.

Yes it looks fishy jumping to $15k with one bid in less than a day. I think the rivets were where the Fortech flairs were attached on the rear 1/4's. Not much originality of the Innocenti left and some serious work to bring it up to shape.

Yet another Mini for sale on BaT, this time a tasty little Traveler.....that needs a lot of mechanical work, as well as some help on the body - I mean, they couldn't tape off the headliner before they sprayed the interior? Come on.......

Man. I like that little traveler.!   Sure its Bits of this and that but thats what keeps it yours..

Seeing the Gaff tape + headliner condition it wasnt worth taping (masking)  it Should have been removed upon respray but the covering needs replaced anyhow... Good engine + gearbox + brakes + suspension sliding windows = long body OH YESSS

It could be a fine buy to tart up and finish! have a useful little wagon!   Yea , I like wagons.

That wagon has been for sale on Mini Mania off and on for quite some time.  I don't recall the asking price. 

Edit:
A refresh of the Mini Mania ad seems to have been recently done and shows an asking price of $10500.

I love Volvo wagons! I've had one on my list of favorite cars since I learned to drive.  I really wanted a 240 as my first car but that didn't pan out. 
How are you liking your Santa Cruz (Bronson?)  I picked up a 5010 this year and it's the bees knees.

Wagon life.   I did some mini work on a Converted Van to a Window van and it was Darn Useful for a few days of Use.
 
    Volvo for life!
  We even got my Mother in Law a wagon for 'baby duty"  also now have a SUV,  XC90 ... not near as FUN as wagons are to drive but its solid.

Santa Cruz Bronson = Simply Heaven.
    I Tested a 5010 too and it was a GREAT bike!.  Broke my other Big Mtn Bike, and needed a 'bigger" bike replacement.     Simply Shreds   the Harder you push it the easier it eats it up.. Mind boggling speed on the tough terrain.

Mini Overload!

Clubby!

Tidy!

Somewhat local to me. Watching this one in case the bidding stays low. Sadly timing sucks.

Taxes are due next week and I have to pay my last Obamafine and I have to fund my IRA's in order to minimize my Obamafine, there is no money left for playing car.

If this is in a steal neighborhood I might move and take my financial lumps.

Well, that blue Inno went for the 2nd bid, I wonder if that car really sold or if it was a mistake on the bidder's part? I guess we'll know if it gets relisted........$15007 was simply ridiculous for that car.

The nice black Clubby is up to $13K, which shows that a truly nice car will bring good money, even with a square nose!   ;D

The little red wagon is up to $4k, I can't imagine it going above $5K with as many problems it now shows - like a square end pipe drain plug that has to have silicone smeared all over it to keep from leaking, more silicone on the transmission case near the shifter and a whole host of other issues. There's a car under this mess, but it will take some skills and some dough to bring it out.

Stan's 2005 is now up to $9K with 6 hours to go, so I'm thinking he should get a nice finish to his auction.....

The worse part about the red Estate is the hit it took on the passenger floor, it is totally wrinkled and looks to be hammered out even the fender well looks out of shape. That being said the flip front fits very well and the mechanical's are worth close to the current auction price.
The Clubby looks excellent and for once the colour change looks to have been done correctly but if the auction does not pick up i am sure it will be RNM.

When I first saw that red wagon on BaT, for about 2 seconds I thought i was seeing my old Traveller.   Seeing the condition Iím glad it is not my old car.   It would have been heartbreaking to see it run down like that.
