Default eBay user bids $10m for...

http://thefunbucket.com/2007/05/05/e...f-hazzard-car/

Didn't really want to bring my blog into this, but I have it posted there, this is part of the quote, An anonymous bidder has pledged almost $10 million US for a version of the orange 1969 Dodge Charger car made famous in the television show The Dukes of Hazzard.

Interesting. eBay says if the bid is verified, it'll be the largest made on eBay!

actually 50. 200,000 * 50 = 10,000,000 assuming there's no tax or anything. Otherwise you're right, about 40.

I can't see paying 10 million for a car, I'd rather buy something else like maybe a supercomputer, or invest some of it or something. That much for a car is a little bit much, if I'm going to pay that much for a car it better get good gas mileage (like a few hundred miles per gallon!) and better last me at least 500,000 miles because I'd rag the heck out of it.
