They're all to busy watching and bidding on 90's Japanese nostalgia.

I wonder if that will work better? It only got to $17K or so on BaT, and I wonder why it didn't do better - it's a really well sorted and rare car.

Okay, I'm pretty sure this Mini is indeed black.  ;D    Just popped up on BaT, it's another JDM Mini 998 special edition.

This one was a grade 4 when it went though the Japanese auctions.  That's pretty high and rare grade for a 3 decade old car.   Wonder if bidding on BaT will reflect that?

Well this one reached $7800 reserve not met.
Not a lot of love shown for this one but imo it should have done better.

Yup.  Wonder if that’s due to it being an automatic?

Ugly boot stripes limit your mileage significantly.

They make you go faster, trying to get away from them

There are several automatics here, including one who drove up from deep in Texas....adjusted his valves before he left and didn't get one of the nuts tight, it backed completely off and he did most of the trip on 3 cylinders! When he got here the nut was still on top of the head (in the valve cover) so they put it back, reset them and he's been running fine ever since!   ;D

IMHO, that white 998 auto is a $5K car.

White!?    8.gif.   

And to think you were the guy who called me out on mis-labeling a dark green Mini as black.
