I hope your winner isn't too far away from you so that it all works out.

You need to get the new owner to join this board. Tell him it's a requirement to get the keys from you. LOL

The final 10 minutes was pretty exciting. My friend and i both have cable internet and were talkingon the phone for the last few moments of the auction. I got almost 2 thousand dollars richer in about 10 minutes time! We were both clicking the refresh button almost non-stop. This is the first time i've sold anything on ebay.

the winner is in PA, about 600 miles from here. (same distance to ames iowa from here)

We've e-mailed back and forth a couple times now....still haven't received my $1,000 down payment........supposed to have that within 48 hours. Hopefully it all works out well.


5 thousand bucks is perfectly acceptable....although i wish it would have gone for a little more!

Yeah! I still remember the rush I got doin' the "refresh rapid fire" during the closing minutes on my White Elephant! I think what hair I had that didn't fall out from stress certainly turned a definite shade of grey.

Congrats on a successful sale, and don't worry, the odds are greatly in your favor that the guy will come through. I know nothing SEEMED to happen fast enough FOR ME when I won the bid on mine, but in reality it all fell nicely into place in quite short order!

The buyer has 48 hours from auction end to pay the $1,000 deposit.

There's less than 8 hours before the end of the deadline and the buyer has yet to respond to my e-mail (well, actually a total of 3 e-mails) in regards to how he wishes to make the payment.

we'll see how it goes......

I imagine if you needed to get a loan for the bus it may be hard to get
