    Just a heads up, there is an "09" Magic on Ebay right now at $18,000 no reserve. 6 days left I believe. I've bought and sold a bunch of old cars and trucks on there,occasionally stuff goes cheap, usually not. A lot of people scared to buy a boat on there, might be a sleeper deal?Worth checking it out if you're in the market for a boat....I don't know the guy or the boat at all...If I had the money right now, I'd go take a look just in case.

    Not much sells in ebay lol. Most people are scared to pull the trigger on anything unless it's a 1/3 of its value and then they still back out. I've had to advertise (auction) same units 3 times usually because if they do win it because I do no reserve auctions they back out every time. I accidentally hit the buy it button,my kids bid it, my dog logged on and hit the button. I mean really WTF I've heard it all. All ebay is to me is a nation wide advertising vehicle that's it. I had one old asshole buy my 40' Diesel pusher and he showed up in phx from Yuma the next Morning at 8am and told me sorry its bigger than he thought it was. Fuck me. I relisted it and it sold but 4k less cause people now think there is a problem with it cause he backed out.
    Good with it.

    Yeah I was thinking the same about the lousy description, an email/conversation and then an inspection would be a must.
    It will be interesting to see where it ends up, or if someone makes an offer and he ends the auction, if it is for real....

    I just emailed the seller some basic questions to see if I get a proper response...

    No big, hoping someone on here could maybe a get a deal is all...

    I've sold a lot of classic cars on ebay since joining in 2000, it's not nationwide advertising, it's worldwide advertising. Had 90% great experiences on there, there will always be a few strokes!

    I'm not scared to post the link if there is any chance someone from RDP could get a boat they want or make some money.....

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/2009-Magic...559406?hash=item5934e5b7ee:g:4mEAAOSwoeddcl3L

    Seller has ZERO HISTORY with ebay and stereo has obviously been stripped. If they are taking 10 year old speakers out what else are they willing to take. Only way I would bid is if I was close enough to drive the day the auction closes.

    I have bought a few vehicles on ebay, even flipped a few, and always did ok. I just made sure they were xlose enough or cheap enough to take the risk.

    Yep be super careful, pay after you inspect in person when picking it up.

    I sold a beautiful 56 oval Vw on there to a guy with 0 feedback, thought I'd have to relist it. He wired the money same day and I later found out he owned a few hotels...

    You never can tell, but you can't be too careful.

    I sent the seller a question regarding his listing, but he hasn't answered yet.



    I'm really interested in that paintbrush!!

    I think it will fetch at least 60K, I'm excited to see the end result. Weird I'm not buying or selling it.

    Seller only has 1 feedback. My bet is if it doesn't hit the $$$ he wants ad gets pulled. Been there a few times quit shopping Ebay.

    You can't end a listing less than 12 hours before the end of the auction.

    If it goes cheap, he could refuse to sell it. If somebody really wanted to force the issue, it could be a problem though.

    Hopefully someone can get it.

    The photos look a bit grainy. With the feedback and not actual photos, that worries me. But, maybe they aren’t tech savvy and tried to take a picture of a picture?
    Hopefully it’s legit to whoever wins it.

    As low as I've seen some eBay auctions close, I actually think the seller got good money and the buyer may be able to make a few bucks.
