So the blue chip investment has lost about $10,000 a week....

If he's talking $50K, I've got the funds to throw down. At this rate I'm guessing it will be about mid-march :)

LOL ... love your analogy .. mid-March sounds about right!  Of course, it'll get sold off the record at a significant low. I hope whoever buys it knows what they're looking for.

Down to $110k yesterday ... down to $100k today ...

Knowing these cars ... I reckon $75k is a nice buy ... if it has no issues ... $50k if it has issues.

Noticed it is back to $135K.

Or seems looking for a swap:
"Asking an honest price of $135,000 OR REASONABLE OFFER. Would consider a swap for the following: 2006+ Lotus Europa + Cash my way. Maserati Gransport + Cash my way. Lotus Exige V6 Ferrari 360 Porsche 996 turbo, Manual"


Hmm. Different tactic, but probably same outcome.

He's adjusting his price to match the fuel price cycle.

Went up 40 cents a litre here in one day.. does the ACCC actually exist in this country?

Just dropped from $135k to $80k ... getting into the right ballpark

And looks sold now.

Yeah, I'd been communicating with the seller ... not sure it is truly sold ... but I think he wants eyes off it.  We discussed what was wrong with the car and what work had been done.  New owner is still going to carry risk on the engine liners which haven't been done.
