The CRX…closer, closer…
I'm still the winning bidder on the CRX Si I talked about earlier, but we haven't cracked the reserve. On Wednesday, I traded emails with the seller, and told him I was very interested. He wouldn't tell me what the reserve was, but said that for a fair offer, he'd pull the auction. I responded with my best price (which was $1750 — the maximum bid I had already placed). In turn, he lowered the reserve to $1800 and sent a personal note to all of the bidders telling us what the reserve is and saying that if it doesn't break the reserve by the end of the auction that he'll contact the high bidder and make an offer.
At T-minus 8.5 hours, I'm the high bidder, and there's been no bid activity since yesterday morning. At 9:00pm tonight, the auction will end, and perhaps I'll get an email from the seller.
The waiting is driving me bananas. 🙂
