NEW 2009 SRT8 Challenger sells for $29.1K

Guys, what are the odds of this going through? I did what I could to win and sure enough, I won.

Dealer wants to back down now. What could I do?

Dodge : Challenger : eBay Motors (item 390166094286 end time Mar-12-10 14:07:25 PST)

ebay auction: 390166094286
It's in LA county and so am I.
Legal binding contract at the bottom. I did my part so far.

Also, sign up and support the board

Update: 3-17-10:
Sat down with the dealership rep with paperwork, payment, and documentation in hand as required in auction listing 11:15 this morning. They won't honor the auction for a 5th time, in person.

I took a huge step back from all of this today and took a much needed break. I've been obsessing about reading as many posts as I can, with everyone's comments and suggestions, as well as going to other message boards along the way. As you can see there are a lot of posts and opinions going around and amazed me how this has grown so much in such a short amount of time.

I have a lot more to read up on and being patient with the whole process of it all.

Again, THANK YOU to all the followers and message boards. More to come…

I usually try to update my post at the end of the day so I have as much information as possible. So bare with me as both sides come together. Thank you again!

Update: Hitman's Log. Star Date 3.20.10...

Still alive and well. Thanks everyone for being concerned. Was a big day indeed for me, and also for everyone following this. Working on gathering all my notes. Please hang tight.

First of all, "Thank You" to everyone for cheering me on and helping me move forward in a positive way. A lot of message boards picked up this thread and have to thank everyone for passing the word around too.

There you have it. Visual of the keys in my possession of the SRT8 deal that Glenn E. Thomas Dodge honored for $29.1K plus tax and license fees of course.

Both parties had plenty to talk about that day but in the end of it all, things worked out for everyone. So there is praise to be made to both sides, especially the dealer who did honor the auction.

Would encourage everyone to send them praise and not attack anyone in that establishment as this was not the point of this thread.

I'm sure there will be questions on how things went down.

looks to me like a brand new ebay seller that had NO IDEA of how to run a reserve style auction, LOL.
sure as hell hope you can get it for that price but you may have to get a lawyer to hold them to it, Ebay will be just about worthless in this case because i think the dealer will just cancel their seller account.

just in case they do completely back out i would make a complete copy of the auction before hand that you can post all over the web showing what kind of con artists they are.

I saved everything electronically including the listing, so yes, had to make sure. So I'm not at fault by wanting to press forward then. Will post updates if and when I do get them.

It looks like the dealer forget to place a reserve on the SRT. If the dealer wants to back out of the auction, your chances of getting the Challenger at your bid are slim and none.

I know this dealership, and I have been emailing with the Internet guy. I know that they would be willing to deal heavily on this car, since it has over 250 miles on the odometer. But, I'm sure you caught them with their pants down on this one. That'll teach 'em to not put a reserve on their autions!! Good Luck!!

There was just a story about a hyundai that went for a crazy low price on ebay. The dealer wanted to back down and was FORCED to make the sale. I'd contact a lawyer maybe, and definitely consumer affairs. You got that price fair and square. They screw up, they have to bite the bullet.
