That Ride-A-Matic ended up having three people bid on it and went for $1,276 !

 

Where are all those high bidding clowns when I have something for sale ?

I dont know if the guy was insane or just got into a bidding war with the other guy but not even a fully restored one should sell at that price.

Dont want to be around when he finds its cobbled .......

 

If its a scam we'll see it on ebay again in a few days :D

The only logical reason I can come up with for paying that much for it is that it must of had a nostalgic tie to the buyer. I know if something from one of my family members or friends came up for sale that I really wanted money wouldn't be an option, as long as I had the money to play with. If its the only one you have memories with can you really put a price on those memories?  

But still that was a crazy price that thing.

Well, I just found the same tractor listed on CL up in Enola (Harrisburg), PA. asking $1200. Guess he must need to pay off his drug dealer.

Probably the same guy with the $700 tube frame snowblower.

I just looked up the bidding history of that RAM. Someone was padding the price.

My favorite is when guys get these tractors to part and have no idea what their looking at and whats original then go selling the wrong parts claiming they work on that tractor :D
