AbnMike - I totally disagree. I respect your opinion and what you are saying but it doesn't sound like you did a lot of the restoration work yourself or paid to have it done for that matter. Either way, the market in 2013 is a much different market than now. As you know, cars like these are becoming much more valuable and popular simply because they are a great value play. Then, through in the mix a rare color, (nice color at that) and leather interior with the 2800 high compression motor etc. that price will seem cheap in a couple years. Assuming we don't have a major market crash. I don't know the extent of the rust but it doesn't look terrible and for an almost 50 year old car, in my opinion, it looks great. And to have some front end damage fixed it seems to me they did a pretty good job. Anyhow, be happy you were caretaker all those years you had it, sounds like it was tough to let go. I'm going through the same pains right now on whether to sell or keep. Anyways, all good, you can read what I said on BaT. I am e34nut there from my previous e34 ownership when I first joined BaT. You are going to think I'm smoking crack for what I want for mine but I don't think I'm going the BAT route, partly because of the peanut gallery. I have absolutely nothing to hide, lots of people on here know my car well and even then, I don't think it is the right venue for it.Reserve not met at $16,500?
BAT and the seller are smoking crack. I paid $11,500 for it in 2013 and didn't have shipping or other costs to consider. Gordon was asking $13,500. It was in -much- better shape then and had better bits and pieces. The paint was in better shape, there weren't rust bubbles, the interior was in better shape, etc, etc.
Failure all around.
