I'm kinda wishing now that i had done a reserve price instead of starting bid. I think i'd at least have a few people who would have bid on it by now.....

78 people are currently watching the bus, and over 3,600 people have viewed the add.

here's one of the last projects i did on the bus. Photo taken at the NASCAR race here in mi. The steps are covered in diamondplate alluminum.

No the problem was not going with your original value of $2000

Can you lower the starting value now? I know you can lower reserve prices.

keep in mind that most people will only bid in the final few minutes, esp if they want it.

I altered the bidding setup a few days back. Changed my starting bid to $10.00 and set the reserve at $3K.

This is the final day of the auction. Ends tonight at midnite EST (11 hours from now) So far we're up to $3,250.

I'd sure like to get at least $5K for it, but we'll see how things go. I've been talking on my phone almost non-stop to people who are interested in the bus.

$3,250 is an acceptable amount of money. It's been said lots of times one should never plan to get out of a bus the amount of money they spent converting it.

But you can get back in fun the amount of money you spent putting into it!

the top bidder had zero feedback, and i was unable to contact him. I had warnings from several friends who have been burned by the exact same scenario and was advised to cancel his bid. Ebay's lists being unable to contact a bidder as a reason to cancel their bid.

The yellow sign on the fender said

"JACUZZI INSIDE,
WANT A FREE TOUR OF THE BUS?
COME ON IN!"

It's just a laminated sign on yellow paper with black ink. I have a few identicle signs that i put on the bus in vairous locations when i'm trying to attract potential hotties.

less than an hour to go.....and she's still @ $3k. grrrrrrrrrr

I expect people to start bidding soon....(I HOPE!!)
My phone has been ringing non-stop. I've been on the phone all day talking to potential bidders about the bus. A few of them sound really serious. My biggest downfall is that fact that i have zero feedback. This is my first ebay auction. I was going to start bying thigns a few months back just to increase my feedback, but never got around to it.
