    BaT is for money laundering, tax structuring, and suckers with more money than brains.

    If anyone really wants an X1/9, I can find or build you a fresh one for less than what you'd pay on BaT.
    How much to build one of these? I think I talked to you about the model before. It sold for stupid $$ on BaT. It's not a true Abarth. The guy who bought it was selling it a few weeks back on BaT. Didn't hit reserve.

    Yeah I remember seeing that car. It depends on what you start with and how far you want to take it.

    Let's say you find an ok running car with deferred maintenance, roached paint on the hood and trunk, and rust bubbles on the fender flares (common), for around $4k. Do the maintenance, clean everything up, polish the paint that is good, and paint the parts that aren't black. Add some farkle pieces and wheels that don't match the car, and you're into the above for probably under $9k.

    Higher a good photographer and copywriter, and then you have a $30k BaT car ;)
