The eBay bidding was by registered bidder only, though I still highly doubt that bidding was legitimately up to $99.5 million (in fact, the auction has been pulled). Was it a PR stunt timed with the Arizona auction action? I don’t know, but as a former seller on eBay who occasionally sold Hot Wheels cars, and one who is among many that is not happy with eBay/Pay Pal’s growing fees, I suspected it might be a way for the company to get some attention during the live auction action in Arizona.
Thanks, but I’ll do all my car bidding live or in-person where I know who I’m dealing with…
Here’s a link to the original auction:
