Bidding was slower than expected and pricing seemed low, up until last 20 minutes or so, but that is par for the site. Sale exceeded my expectations, not that the car was unworthy just that past comps, only 2, were only bid/sold at 6250 and 6550, I figured that's where she would land when it ws all said and done. Ended up going to a Volvo dealer as a display for his showroom after a good fight to $8K. She will be at the palm springs volvo dealer in the near future if anyone wants to see her.

Congratulations! That it went to a dealer in Palm Springs is fitting. Palm Springs is a design-conscious/history-conscious city.

Very nice. I am glad this worked out so well for you.

I would be interested to hear from you how your experience with BAT and the sale procedure was. The site is very addicting and there are so many interesting cars on there, the kind you just don't see every day.
However, I have heard some negative feedback from people who feel that some of the cars are made nicer looking than what they really are by posting fancy photos.
Another person was disappointed by a deal falling through at the end because the buyer didn't pay.

Thanks, Dirk
