So, what we are saying here is that you can now get about as much for a red '57 500 as you once could for a red '57 Chevy.  Times have changed, haven't they?

Auction ended

Well, it wound up at $355, which is just fine with me.  I forgot that because of daylight savings time the auction ended an hour earlier than I had intended.  I can't help but wonder if that affected the outcome...

Anyway, it sold to the same guy that bought my red wall phone through a second chance offer, after the first buyer returned it because it didn't match his mom's wallpaper!  Next week I'm listing a white '64 500 in pristine condition (surprise!).  Kind of boring, but I have to break up the monotony of red, aqua, turquoise and pink.

Wow, great price.  I'd love to get that kind of change for some of mine.  Is there some sort of ceremony you do, or a "phone dance" before the item is listed? ;D

Thanks, Jim!  Yes, before each auction I put on a headdress fashioned from handset cords and then do a roller disco routine to "Ring My Bell".   Works for me!

I knew it !, I knew it !, there had to be some kind of VOO DOO involved someplace.
I'm there, the next auction I post, I'm going to do a naked rain dance in my backyard, with a soft plastic 500 case on my head like a hat, and play "Macho Man" in the background.

Dang, I was using BEechwood 4-5789.  Maybe that was the problem?
