Anyone interested?

Photos are pretty good compared to what you normally see.

Looks good. Can't afford it though, I'll have to pass :P

It'd be pretty cool if someone from TWHL actually bought it to be honest.

Why 7499 and not 7500? I asking out of curiosity, people around here usually set rounded prices, not prices with a marketing strategy :)).

The car looks in beautiful condition. Hope you'll find a buyer soon!

Hey, he’s saving that buyer $1! ._.

Looks pretty good, probably would buy it if I had the money and lived back in the Long Beach area.

Well of course, that $1 is for the bus fare to get to the pickup point.

$7,499 is a marketing strategy. Many people filter their searches with a price restriction. $7,499 would make the list if the person select "lower than $7,500". Plus, it's a psychological trick. It sounds pretty stupid, but marketing research has proven that it works.

By the way, I sold it earlier this afternoon, and the person paid $7,500 in cash. No, I didn't give him a $1 bill for change.

It was an unusual experience counting seventy five $100 bills on the sidewalk.

honestly, counting wads of 100 bills on the street is a pretty bad idea

Especially for an area like Long Beach.

I agree this works for most of the people. But my bullshit sensors immediately fire when I see $...99 at the end of a price.

Congrats on selling it!
