Ebay Auction of General Lee A Fizzle

According to CNN the bidder missed the payment deadline, leaving the proposed sale of the "General Lee" a 1969 Charger owned by actor John Schneider in serious doubt. Take note "Chargerguy" you still might have a shot at it!

Apparently the bidder claims his account was hacked, and he did not make a $10 million dollar bid on the car made famous by the tv show Dukes Of Hazzard. Did anyone actually watch that show???? I digress.... Here is a snippet from the CNN article:

NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- After commanding a winning bid last week of nearly $10 million, the online auction of a 1969 Charger, owned by one of the stars of the "Dukes of Hazzard" television show, has blown a gasket.

The winning bidder, William Fisher, maintained that someone else placed the bids in his name after gaining access to his eBay account.

"Of course I have no plans to pay, because I didn't place the bid," an individual claiming to be Fisher wrote Thursday in an e-mail to CNNMoney.com. "I just want this to all blow over, which I'm sure it will."

John Schneider, who played Bo Duke in the series and owns the car - called the General Lee on the show - told CNNMoney.com he had been in contact with Fisher and was aware of his claims.

An EBay spokeswoman said there was no evidence that Fisher's account had been hacked.

During the course of the auction last week, eBay officials disqualified several bids and went so far as to contact several of the top bidders to verify their offers, an eBay spokeswoman had said earlier.

A winning bid on eBay constitutes a legally binding contract, according to a company spokesperson, although company policy allows Schneider to approach the second-highest bidder about purchasing the vehicle.

Schneider told CNNMoney.com Thursday afternoon he is considering putting his car back up for sale on eBay, but said this time bidders would be carefully pre-screened by an outside firm before the bidding started.

The vehicle is a modified Charger that appeared as the General Lee in the TV show.

Will be interesting to see how Ebay will handle this one. Best wishes to John on the sale of his car. I'm certain it will find a nice home with a collector somewhere.

Cheers!
