Yes I agree, the wheels were already set in motion so no need to derail.

Mea Culpa, Street Rod. Sorry, I only realized it after I posted. It’s at $40,000 with 2 days on the clock.

Love this game. $46800. BAT is strong for some P Cars. Cabs seem to struggle on the site. Silver is more common and less “rare” for the BAT mafia to hype up. As nice as it is, I think it’s gonna sell for less than we’d expect.

What happens if it doesn't sell or meet reserve?

Highest bid or prior winner chooses makes sense to me.

The only way it would not sell is if it did not meet reserve. If reserve is met, it must sell. Note, not all cars are auctioned with a reserve. Also, BaT tends to force lower reserves - they want cars to sell.

Anyway, if the car does not meet reserve, the seller has the option of contacting the high bidder to make an off-auction deal. This option extends to the last high bidder only. If the seller or any other bidder tries an end around the process, they could get banned. It's actually a tightly run site, which is why it works so well.

I sold my 996 C4S successfully on BAT 2 years ago to winning bidder in Hawaii.
When u start the process of auctioning a car on BAT you work with a staff person who edits/re-writes your description from the information you provide.
**They also set the reserve price which tends to be on the low side for obvious reasons that they want the car to sell.
I went back and forth with them to bump the reserve up a couple of $thousand (from the $22K reserve they wanted to use) which they finally agreed to - The car sold at $26K which was $2000 over the $24K reserve

$40,000 with about 6 hours remaining - Amazing how ridiculous the comments can get and off course. There's a huge debate about paint thickness/paint meter
A few weeks ago I was following another auction and it's usually the same non-buying jackasses who are notorious for lame negative comments

boom! That was fun. Disappointing for some, expected for others. Seemed low to me. Almost 10,000 views, 785 watchers, and 22 bidders felt it was market. I’ll troll BAT and pick what’s next.

Price dings on this one are cab, with some cosmetic issues on the soft top, aftermarket wheels. Otherwise this is a nicely presented car and the seller generally does well on BaT.
i had 46.5
