I love that site. Actually, I should say I love the stuff Mike finds for me on that site. The stuff I have gotten so far has actually been a good deal.

Someone please tell me this is a piece of shit that's not worth $4,500+ and I would have been stupid to keep bidding on it.....
Holy Crap! I started clicking through the pics... started out 'looks pretty nice' and started getting into 'hmmmm' territory, and before you know it each pic shows a bigger horrorshow than the previous.... Run! Run away!

I've been an occasional buyer for almost a year.
Usually brouse the listings almost every week.
Learned to know what the item sells for new and GO INSPECT SAID ITEM FIRST!!!!!!!!
Got a Bocsh router with table for a killer price last winter.

Just starting out as a seller.
My items are in the Byron Center location auction that ends 9-19-13.
We'll see how that goes .

I sold a suburban yrs ago (maybe 5-6 yrs). Back then they kept 10% of the sale and I got the rest. I would be cautious with dropping a vehicle off there though. I have seen people come and inspect them and be very physical and abusive as well as damaging to the vehicles while "inspecting" them.

A friend of mine has a body shop, and he owes me a favor. I figured he could of fixed the rust spots, or just completely repainted it.

The description said it "runs and drives".
I should have gone and looked at it.
I wouldn't have even bid that much on it. Looking at a couple pictures showed that the fitment of some panels is miles apart. Not to mention the rest off that gummy looking car. Saweet stripe on the bottom though!

almost. I have always liked Falcons, seems harder to find a solid one that's not the price of gold.

One of my neighbors works at a 'budget' used car lot- says that aftermarket pinstriping is always there to disguise rust repairs.... distracts the eye.

I like how he just copy/pasted the description from the auction and used all the pictures..... except the ones those show flat tires, missing lugs, rust, dents, tears in the seats and holes in the door panels lol.

I like the 'interior almost complete' comment- yeah, except for the door panels that are currently made of old paneling covered with moldy carpet.....
