I am on the market for a used car and have been browsing various online marketplaces and auction sites for used cars. I came across many cars in all sorts of conditions which sometimes make me wonder if there would be any buyer at all.
The auction of the rare rust-bucket 1963 Pontiac LeMans Temptest that was put up for auction on eBay recently with a starting bid of US$500 even surprised the seller himself when bidders found out that this car, even without an engine or transmission, was one of the six special Super Duty versions and driven by they drag-race legend, Stan Antlocer.
The auction finally closed at US$226,521 after a last minute bidding frenzy by interested parties. Boy, don’t I wish I too own such a rusty shell of a car!
