Yeah I figured there can't be two of them like this! 

Looks like this guy is just going to flip it.

The location of car as Swartz Creek is the same on ebay as it was on Carls original auction...makes me think the owner kept it and relisted on ebay.
Is it worth splitting the car Carl?

No this guy bought it took the wire wheels off and listed it on ebay.  He bought it for $1025 plus fees.
I have bid the $1500 opening bid.  I have never done sheetmetal work before.  So I am excited to learn.

I am ridiculous.
