Who bids over £9k on a car with basically 1 picture :shock: Description ok, but I would want more pictures before I bid a penny......

He also has a 3.0S with no pics (Yet)? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-Capri-3- ... 2423384322

Hi Andy,
You never know, the bidder may have viewed the car prior to bidding. I doubt it though.....

Andrew.

Both listed this morning between 11.00 and 11.30, so I doubt if either have been viewed as bids were within 4 mins for the 280, and 19 minutes for the 3.0S......Currently, 280 at £12K and 3.0S at £7K!

Who in their right mind would bid that sort of money without ever seeing the car? :roll:
Unless it's a dealer making a calculated gamble that the car is as described and it would be worth at least what they bid?

Adverts say part of a collection.....They have a couple of Escort Cosworths too, one with pictures and one ad to be updated.

Hopefully they will post pics for all of them. :agree: Madness to bid on the current adverts :roll:

Now over £18K :o http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-Capri-28 ... Swxu5ZK~Gr

I hope bidders have viewed it, as there isn't a reg number to check the MOT history.....

It looks nice from the one photo there is.....
As you say, that wouldn't be so much of an issue if the bidder has viewed the car in person.

280; £22100 Reserve not met. 3.0S; £7900 Reserve not met.......What a surprise.....One picture and no pictures :banghead:

Probably reserved way over the top too....Good to see people can't just assume they can sell cars with little to no effort!

I don't know if it's my OCD but I can not understand how people sell stuff on e-bay with out a picture or just 1 photo with the car up side down :banghead: :banghead: , I almost think eBay should have a big red button that you can press to say sort the advert out .
I do sell stuff on eBay and always hope that I get things right with the pictures I take ,you can edit your pictures really easy in the eBay site to make sure they are around the right way .

But I know I don't bid with out a picture so know wonder they don't get top dollar .....

Sorry for my :swear: I will now sit in the garden and listen to bird song thinking that the world is all ok

Its not just you, i find it absolutely ridiculous, bordering on insanity as well. And i dont think its just an OCD thing either.

If you're still looking, there's this one:

https://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/263215127437?r ... noapp=true

It's in the club I belong to, but I've never seen it 'in the metal' so to speak. Price seems a little low for a 280, and it seems to have now exceeded reserve.....But there it is!

The 280 on eBay appeared in TopGear when they talked about the end of Capri production - about 28mins in....thought I recognised it, one of the press cars!
