Richter Rox The BaT comments are great when someone is listing a classic american land yacht, wonderful stories of young memories , honest helpful advice coupled with a genuine enthusiasm of the cars and good will for both the sellers and buyers. Let alone a real appreciation for the cars place in automotive history.

Some of the euro cars seem to bring out a level of animosity for the whole process that makes you question if the commenters are even enthusiasts.

TexFinn There's a reason why I don't read any of the comments on BaT...

LWB250 Loved the “Jimmyp56” shill that came in at the last minute and gushed about the car. Nice try, but it didn’t help.

Better yet was a private message I got, accusing me of being in cahoots with the seller to generate “sympathy bids”. Damn! Busted! Now where do I pick up my check?

This is getting better than the Kennedy assassination, Area 51, Roswell, etc.....

There are a lot more nutcases out there than I ever imagined!

humblejoe Bottom line, it's a nice car and seller was not an expert in selling 126's. His first attempt at selling was an ad for $45k on cl, in an apartment parking lot( I think it's the same car). Then BAT with less than perfect pictures. He improved them and here we are. So in the end he got what he expected/wanted and someone with deep(er than I have) pockets got what they wanted. Moooving on.....

Its NYC. You drop it off, hand over the keys and pick it up the next day. Slide the credit card and just like new. There are only about 200 shops in NYC environs that would be competent to do the headliner of a Rolls; certainly a SEC.

Despite all the butt hurt, I think the commentary was actually pretty gentle for a car with more than a few questions. I still can't believe the headliner wasn't fixed. That was like listing it with a flat tire.

Wilson was right too. $50K was not to be.

Maybe you guys busily claying and buffing out your SEC paint in your garages can knock off now. The market isn’t as strong as everyone thought.
