Ladies and Gents, there's a bidding war for a low-mile TR7 Spider on Ebay. It's at $13,995.

Maybe there's hope for our TR7s!

ObiRich -- you must be dancing, as this car is rather similar to a certain TR7.

the current high bidder (jeffusc) buys and sells tr7 parts on ebay (i have purchased from him and bid against him). so i figure he knows how much it is worth.

the dealer is in eugene and has a good reputation in the local sports car community supporting the local british car club and emerald empire sports car club (affiliated with scca). i don't think this car is a scam based on his reputation. he has a web site for his business, i think it's called the sports car shop (eugene oregon) and sells vintage jags, mg's , triumphs, and land rovers.

Yeah I am...in fact when the auction closes I may print the page and take it to my insurance company to up the preagreed amount I have on mine.

Of course, this one is in a lot better shape than mine. First, you'd have to add a 1 in front of the mileage to equal mine. This one still has the original seats and carpet (mine has the carpet...but not in the same condition). But overall, yeppers, I'm glad to see this one going for that much.

By the way, are you coming to the 53rd Annual Glenwood Springs Rallye on June 10-12? Usually have at least 1 or 2 cars from Utah and several others from New Mexico, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, and even Idaho. Last year there were 5 TR7s and 8s, 160 total cars, and about 250 people registered. Should be a great time--more details on "www.mgcc.org". /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/driving.gif

How about this one that went last month for $12.5k but supposedly only had 300 miles on the clock.
