Dude in Nigeria bids it up to 50 grand and bails, doesn't matter. The site spits out the ad sheet that says "such and such just sold for $50k"

No different than a dating site that leaves up profiles of chicks that haven't signed on in 2 years.

At least the listing posted above makes a shred of sense, not much but a shred. 1900 miles is on a whole different level than 15,000
15,000 is just a relatively low mileage used car
Good point, I never really thought about that and I bet there is zero legal recourse the site can execute other than banning the bidder. I'd like to see the rate of transactions that are actually successful from these sites.

I guess when the world gets back to normal and Mecum or Barrett starts selling these for $50K, then we will have a true indicator of value.
