I find it brilliant, there really are some interesting ways to improve bidding, and most people will bid in that situation not for the product on sale, but to be part of the bid. Then some poor sap will roll up at the end ££££s out of pocket, and will then realise he has bought a standard MR2, but as far as sales tactics go, he is making more than the car's worth.

 

Put it this way, the woman who put her mustard yellow dress on ebay... remember the unfortunate first photo she took with a mirror close by! and she sold that dress...

There is some method to this fella's madness

 

(thanks to the owners of the pictures above, I am not trying to steal your photos and put them on this website, honest, I am just trying to share the info!) - There that satisfies copyright!

I'm more interested in what that item at the base of her side drawers might be.
Looks curious to me ;)

Reminds me of a time when I was 13
There was and is an electrical appliance store in ardee co.Louth called McGhee's

I was in it looking to buy my first stereo,
When a guy from Dublin came in to return a toaster,
He said to the girl behind the counter "I bought this toaster yesterday, and its not working"
She says " would you like a replacement or would you like to see McGhee"
He started laughing and says " I'd prefer to see the manager thank you"

I don't know if you guys nick name it a gee too,
But he thought she meant gee when she actually meant the manager

lmfao, you two and your domestics!

 

It does look to me to be a slightly more suspicious object, I wonder if she ends up selling something else, with another 'accidental' naked photo and that little gizmo so close by! that will probably end up getting her another house!

For that winning bid price I'd prefer an Aston DB7 same ride quality but less maintenance ;)

Can I test drive both before I decide which I want.

At least with the Aston when you turn the engine off it stops making noises and doesn't want to cuddle you.
