Aside from your assumption as to whether or not the new owner will drive his or her new acquisition or just keep this cool car as a collectible, do you have a problem with that?
Furthermore - If he has a problem with that - Do you have a problem that he has a problem?
Good thing we have the opinion police around.

I have a problem that you are asking him if he has a problem with the one who has a problem. Do we have a problem? 😁 lol

…. and maybe it is because these high profile sales were surrounded by a bunch of artificial hype created by a following as seen on the comments section of BaT.”
What “artificial hype”? I came in late to the auction but saw 3 bidders bidding in the last 12 hours. I must’ve missed the “artificial hype”, but if my car is a fake and being hyped I’d like to know what’s the lack of authenticity that certifies it as “hype”. My car has a following…. That’s awesome! :rockon::crazy:

Auctions can be strange things…. I’ve seen two bidders go crazy over Wayne Carini cars, over Mopars, over Cobras before… it’s nothing uncommon.

This thread is going sideways in a hurry..

Some people feel that they are the end-all say-all and are quick to banter you with their “intellect” instead of just gentlemanly disagreeing. Then they like to label you with what they are actually doing themselves… policing the forum. :thumbsdown:

What is really hilarious is that now some of our M6G members are the real reason why the price of this HEP R car recently sold for what it did based on a few members being a cheer leading squad which hyped up the price on this last HEP R which just sold on BaT. :facepalm:

I can just imagine some recently interested bidders of this HEP R sitting at home thinking that I best bid up the price on this cool HEP R to over $150,000 based on all of the positive feedback from some Mustang forum members that are cheering us on!!

Just when you think that you have seen it all it somehow gets even more absurd than ever before!

:cwl:

What’s really absurd is when someone pretends to not know how things work, only when it’s convenient.

In the end, purchase confirmation is very strong with cars. Hard to tell someone they did wrong when it‘s just an opinion. Some people even believe that a little chassis brace fixes tramlining - but that’s the difference between opinion and facts - you cant fix stupid.

The world is a bit crazy right now. For those of us who follow pricing religiously, there is no way to gauge whats going on. Inflation, supply shortages and the shoving of EVs down are throat are all factors Im sure. Anything else?

But, that is a gorgeous car

Some hot girl in my area with a new white Lambo LP 780 with ridiculously loud exhaust that sounds like the engine is failing haha.

Hmm. Well Harry, how many other BaT auctions have you been involved in like that? What were you and others doing getting involved in something that is none of your business? If this is something that you do all the time (like hang around here), then that would make sense. But you made it your little special side project to get involved in an auction that you had no interest in except to hype the car up for what reason? Do you really have that much time on your hands where you have to be such a busy body and sticking your fingers in a pie that had nothing to do with you?

You talk about absurd? You have been Mr HEP since day 1. Now that's fine, but if you love them so much, then why did you sell yours, which by the way, was way before this crazy bubble? And you didn't answer my question before...... how much did you get for yours?

And I'm not sure how many Rs you physically own anymore. You keep talking about all these cars..... aren't most of them long since sold off?

As for my behavior, our good pal crossed a line (once again). He does so with other members as well. I know Jeff (stanglife). He is the most level headed critical thinker that I know. I agree with him pertaining to your good pal Fred. Like him, I decided to remove him from my interactions on this forum. There is no reason to try to communicate with someone like that. He is, IMHO, exactly as I described him.

I must say It was amusing watching you guys on BaT in the comments section. Thanks for the good laugh. And speaking of the BaT comments...... When I bought my base R on an MSO, I didn't pay sales tax on it. That was paid when I registered the car. So all the great advice you give isn't always right..... which is another reason that you probably shouldn't be getting involved in something that is going to potentially cost someone a lot of money.

Were you in contact with any of those bidders to offer some of your driveby expert advice?

Speaking of BAT and comments from members in here who registered with the same name on BAT. I just want to point out that I registered on BAT yesterday ( to look at 65 GTO's) and I couldn't choose my M6G name because someone already took it. So if any of you see comments on BAT from JR369, that is NOT me.
