I think the owner is panicking as neither of his Bonds are making what he expected at this late hour.

Interesting comment Bob as someone bid this morning and it was pinched on the 26th so why is it still on ebay?
Most people bid in the last few minutes any way

Alternatively it suggests the problem of publicizing you have car. It can be seen to exist, its whereabouts become known, and there you go. If he leaves the auction to run he is advertising its been nicked, for free. The Police will do little, You need to network yourself and find the car. I was lucky, I got my Messerachmitt back after hard graft and good trade connections. Are you going to buy an unknown cheap Bond MkD unquestioned right now? I know this does not fit in with the narrative that all info is to belong to the collective, but its is a reality in its own right. I have had to many folk sniffing round and taking things from me, to not take this seriously.

Did John Dobb ever get his cars back? What about the stolen Breutsch? I could go on but its depressing.

ON the other side advertising it as Bond literature is not really going to pull in the punters for a car, nor spread the word effectively about a theft. I pity the thief. He turned up expecting a Villiers manual and got stuffed with a whole flippin car!

So ! What are we saying ?? That if the bidding keeps up and reaches £4000 it will suddenly found the vendor looked in the wrong lock up and it was still there all the time  ;) surely last minute bidding is where its at anyway

Just a hunch.  If it has been stolen I feel truly sorry for the guy.

Could someone post the link ?

Posting the link is easy: at the relevant page, go to the URL address, which at first will just say "ebay.co.uk".  When you copy it, though, you get the full banana:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/271813755214?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

I don't understand the seller's note: has the car been stolen, or its number?

I know how to post links Dave I do it all the time but haven't figured out how to on iPhone . The message is pretty poor isn't it but it's definitely the car he's referring to . I think we must read " has got to no. " as has got to know ! HM  :)

No, you can get the cardboard and paint out and sell him your Welsh one for a nice little earner, just through the tunnel in Liverpool, so they get the blame.
Changing tack slightly, I thought of this dodgy blame them across the river move, as I read the other day that Wallasay is in the top ten Postcodes to live for 'normal' people.

If using the eBay app, while on relevant page tap the "export" (arrow upwards out of box) symbol, and choose "copy". Go to forum posting, tap-and-hold, and choose "paste".

If using browser to see eBay, tap and hold on URL, then tap again and "select", "copy". In forum posting, tap-and-hold, "paste".

thanks Dave have copied as you said but "tap-and-hold" has us both stumped  :) sitting here furiously tapping and holding my finger on my iPhone screen and of course nothing happens - we guess you did actually mean that . Karen by the way says hi  :)

Sorry - just tried it again. No need to "hold". First tap makes it all blue, second tap lets you copy.

OMG !!!!! the 1949 Mark A went for just £700 this was a steal !

and the stolen D finished at £901 but we were told not to bid !

what IS the story to this bidding ? poor man , on the forum , that paid nearly 5k for a very similar and equally rare A only 3 months ago  :'(
and is the D stolen , I have offered to help him publicise the theft
