    Could he not sell after people bidded on it? If he wanted to do that why is he auctioning it?

    He's abusive too.

    I asked him about selling it and his recent poor show with buyers. This was his reply:

    EAT PUSSY IT TASTES BETTER ! looks like you got nothing else to do ****ER !

    Charming.

    So he put it back on within weeks, looks like he was hoping for a quick profit.

    Front bumper looks askew as well - perhaps we should ask about that.

    Is there an ebay "absue" e-mail Fatherpierre should pass his respone onto?

    Did you leave a nice message?

    Not really fussed about his response - it just shows what an idiot he is. He's already spent about £60 on ebay ads and final value fees, but still has the car lol.

    Even more silly to be abusive via email but leave his mobile number to have fun with ;)

    I doubt he'll have a clue about the car. He'll probably call you a **** and hang up on you.

    Let's see if he is rude when answering my questions:D

    Hi-The coupe looks absolutely stunning and I am extremely serious about placing a bid soon. Do you hava a buy it now price? Secondly, I am a bit concerned about your previous poor feedback. Should I be the winning bidder would you definately sell the car to me or will you cause problems and difficulties as has happened with your previous buyer? Are you genuine?

    If he apparently sold the car once to a bidder is that not a 'contract'

    I appreciate he sounds a few cans short but if this buyer is going through any legal action then it could cause issues?

    Ebay's contract isn't worth the screen it's listed on.
