    I agree that's a strong price. Maybe the buyer had a charitible leaning when the bid was placed. If they can show an appraisal for less, they can take a contribution for the difference. On the other hand, they obvioully wanted the car and Dino ownership is worth it :)

    The high bidder had a cool story if you read through the comments.

    That exact Dino used to belong to his uncle and he got to drive it as a teenager. There is no value higher than sentimental value when it comes to something like this.

    Great story. At least two bidders thought it was worth the price!

    Let’s watch for the next couple of BAT auctions, I suspect we may see something a bit different.

    so I made a comment on the auction on this car - i claimed that there was 4-5 DINOS for sale right now

    and someone replied "there may be 4 or 5 in the US but there are "heaps of Dinos for sale in Europe"

    was it one of you ?

    I'm not looking for fight - I'm just curious if others feel the there are heaps of Dinos for sale in Europe

    There may be “heaps”, which I doubt, but at what price? There isn’t a free fall in the market that I have seen.

    Heaps, what a strange way to describe something.

    Texas - I agree with you - I love looking for Dinos and reading about them and of the 5 I have found that are actively for sale

    1 is in Germany and 1 is in Holland

    so I was being polite on Bat - the idea that there are heaps of Dino for sale in Europe is ridiculous

    firstly they didn't make heaps

    and if you were living in Europe and wanted to sell your Dino wouldn't you advertise it with the notion that North American buyers could find it ?

    US model for sale in Europe is always tricky...

    I thought that it should have sold at that money.

    Heaps would be a common slang word in Ireland to describe lots. Not so strange unless we visualise a heap of Dinos. Now that would be strange

    a murder maybe ?

    a murder of dinos ?

    thanks for the link - I loved seeing those European Dinos - I think there was about 22 - one I think was the very cool light green that just joined our forum ...?

    Either way - it was so cool to see these cars I had not seen

    but even still - if we have now identified less than 30 cars for sale - and I was wrong about saying there were 5 - I still consider them to be hard to find and acquire

    It is hard to find a good example for a fair price...

    Re: car in OP.

    I have not been watching market.

    $250 does seem a bit light.

    "Sign of the times"? April 2020.

    Is that a reference to the pandemic or something more?

    Thanks.
