I've bought two cars on eBay.
The first was a 318i BMW, the old German Cortina shape.
It was local so I went and had a look before bidding. Lovely metallic purple colour, not too bad nick. So bid, and won. Went to collect it, to find it was in fact blue!?
When looking at cars, take off the sunglasses with the red tinted lens!
The second was a 1965 Hillman Minx.
Was in the market for new car, and Mrs Vamps and me were trawling through eBay whilst enjoying a rather decent bottle (or two!) of Merlot.
Saw the Hillman with 20mins left on the auction, placed a bid, and won! Turned out to be a lovely car, one owner from new and less than 40K on the clock, but exactly the wrong sort of car for what we wanted! (reliable long distance motorway transport!) It was brilliant though, and I loved it!
Don't go on eBay when pi**ed!
