With economic uncertainty putting a stranglehold on the country’s consumers, large numbers of collector cars are coming on the market. Many owners are facing financial hardship and when faced with having a roof over your head or keeping the dream car around, tough choices are made and usually the car ends up on eBay. eBay Motors Blog focused on an auction for a 1990 Corvette ZR-1 priced at $28,999 or best offer.

Perhaps the owner is in process of a divorce, wants to buy a new ‘Vette or just needs the money. This ZR-1 has just over 10,000 miles on the odometer and has been maintained in a climate-controlled storage, but the first auction did not result in a sale. How collector cars with limited miles end up at dealerships is always somewhat of a mystery (death, auctions, etc), but it seems unfair, almost like animals at the pound. This car was someone’s pride and joy, but now it is up for grabs on eBay.

Possibly it was priced too high or the sheer number of similar cars made it tough to attract the right buyer. Buyers tend to become distracted when there are too many choices available; hopefully each of these special cars will find a good home and avoid becoming victims of tasteless body kits with disturbing color schemes.
