Who owns this Elise?

Near Longwood, FL

Lotus : Elise:eBay Motors (item 200357631722 end time Jul-08-09 10:51:35 PDT)





I want to buy a casual track car, this looks like it could fit the bill.

There is damage to both clams - some of which they have not gone out of their way to show in detailed pictures.

It looks like a heck of a lot less work than the previous car you were thinking of...good luck if you do end up with it.

Why would you spend nearly $20k on a car that was deemed totaled? Just spend a little more and get yourself a car that has no damage.

I don't plan on spending that much.

I don't think I've ever come across anything in life that was for sale with no room for negotiation.

Is that you who got the car? Car is sold for $17,500.00. Still not worth it imo.

Guys remember Vin # SCCPC11165HL34530 is all sorts of messed up for when it comes up again for sale all fixed up.

Damn. no, I didn't feel that it was worth that and I told them so. I bet that sale falls through; too many people on eBay make bids and don't have the money.

I doubt it will fall through. Buyer has too much feedback. From my experience of selling on eBay (quite big) when someone makes a purchase who has over 100 feedback it is a slim to no chance of the item getting re-listed due to not being paid for.

This car didn't sell. I had taken your word for it initially but I just logged into my eBay account and had a counter offer from the seller. I then checked the listing and it ended, but with no sale.

That's a twin of my former Elise. I sold it to Hunting Ridge and they sold it before it got to them, but I've yet to see it pop up on here. For a minute I thought that might be it, but I checked the VIN and it isn't. I still think that is the best configuration and year.

You're right. They had two different listings for it. I saw it after I my last post while doing some "eBay market research" and looking at completed listings.
