meetthespeakers..  I have tried couple times to list VW campers on BaT.. I was accepted FINALLY but they wanted to me to list with NO RESERVE.. I sure was NOT going to do this on $30K VW autovilla.. and this after I had to put up FIDDY photos.and video link.... I have given up BaT as selling option. I just stick to www.ebay.com  www.ebay.co.uk   www.milanuncios.com and of course www.craigslist.org  and www.kijiji.ca   Pups sell real well in the UK and Japan..  let me IF I can help with the export.. later bc.

My only concern is the Pup is not original. It is a mild custom. I feel if stated so, then hopefully it won't be nitpicked apart for what it isn't supposed to be. Maybe I should create a Rejected BAT Site, lol. My classic mini parts trading site aint doing too bad with almost 900 members in the USA.

Sounds like someone needs to build a site out of BaT rejected auction cars and watch them eat their words. IMO just about any Mini on BaT will do well.

I just wanted to note thewerewolf, I tried submitting my 2nd Mini to BAT and 2nd time getting rejected. This is what they had to say:

"Unfortunately, we do not feel that your Mini is a good fit for our site and audience. We are inundated with a high volume of great submissions and simply cannot list them all. We appreciate that you considered BaT Auctions and wish you best of luck with the sale."

I was bummed because I personally thought it would have done ok on there. Unless they are only going to cater to all Original or Cooper S only classic Minis. I am going to try and submit the pickup on there probably next week and see if that one goes through... if not, then I probably will be done with that site.

With that amount of rust/rot work it must have been a labour of love as he will never get that money back even if his labour rate was 50c an hour.
The paint is actually a vinyl wrap matched to his motor home.

It's not like your post was "BAT in Lichtenstein", "BAT in Andorra" or "BAT in Bermuda" (ie: Canada's pretty big)

I sold a rust bucket some years back with a fiberglass flip front.  Where in Canada are we talking?
Car's colour? Specs? Location?
