Closed auctions can also mean the vehicle has been sold. Never sell a car on eBay; the bidders do nothing but low-ball.

You can easily see which auctions sold. Just go to the advanced search and look at the completed listings. The prices in black are the unsold listings.

I have done better on eBay than CL on the low ball comment. In fact people bid it up including overseas. Depends on what you are selling too. If it's just some plain jalopy it may be the case. A nice collector car otherwise.

Please explain how a car that was previously owned by a stranger has "sentimental value"?

My sentimentality has often started the very first day. I have bought some very interesting cars and bikes as well. Most were bought from complete strangers. And then redone with a rigorous restoration. Most done with help from family members and friends. And some subbed out. If you have endured burns, cuts and many hours of sweat on a project car, you may understand. Doesn't matter if you don't know who owned it before; it's now yours.

Please explain why you keep insulting these fine cars, and people like me who owned one.

Oh, sorry about the lack of detail. Anyways these cars are getting fewer and further, and if somebody had one in the past, and liked it, and has the dream of owning another, purchasing one just like it is as close as you will get to "sentimental". This goes for any classic car.

Some people just starting out with an older car do not have a lot of extra money. That can include older individuals as well as young. My friend bought a 55 Chevy for 400.00 back in the early 80s. The build started and things kept cropping up. Family priorities always came first such as tuition and household expenses. He kept coming back to it. Doing things right very slowly. It finally all came together. I also have a car like this that will never be sold. It's a family heirloom, or you hope your family will keep and preserve it. I hope my son one day enjoys mine as much as I have. It means a lot to me. If you can't call this car a labor of love with sentiment, what is?

Thank you for the clarification, and also for not being as thin-skinned as some others who post comments here.
