    I think that's known as free publicity, probably for a car that will come to auction soon.

    I'd advise a lower reserve.

    I had to wonder; what was the point of that?!?!

    Maybe it's a first time (major commercial, not ebay) auction consignor, or merely a narcissistic showoff, but I hardly think promoting a car at ten times (>10X) its value would attract a serious buyer.

    But what do I know, it's been over forty (>40) years since I bought a Healey!

    That's Nigerian money. Converts to $150.00 US dollars. I just bought it. Just have to send him the
    $100.00 down payment. Then he will prepare to send the car. Guess I really made out.

    Bid all the way up to $1K right now.......but a BIN of $78K. Maybe he'll find out how hard or soft the market is.

    Safe to say the seller doesn't make his living as a photographer.

    Knows nothing about the art of composition, that's for sure.

    At least it wasn't a video taken with the "camera" held upright__or maybe there was, I couldn't stand to look any further!
