General Lee Auction goes Awry...

Ebay Auction of the General Lee Goes South

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.

The ramifications of this, as I understand them, are thus:
  1. The General Lee gets relisted.
  2. William Fisher's feedback goes down the tooter.
  3. David Sliker is back in the bidding!
YeeHaw Uncle Jesse, Can you say Forerunner Racing Team?!?

I had a similar situation happen when someone accessed my Ebay account. I ended up with the complete Osmond collection. Have you ever tried to get rid of something like that? I couldn't even throw it away. Recyclers won't touch it.

As for Sliker driving the General Lee to the Prayer Room, I would pay 10 million to see that. That is, if I had 10 million.

Which Duke would Dave be anyway? Bo? Luke?

Shepherd to Lost Sheep's Ebay account! I think getting your ebay hacked would be even worse than what happened to my myspace account! CBB

@chuck - the osmond collection? What do you call the Jackson 5? Chocolate covered Osmonds. HA! Would you believe I just made that up? For real. No lie.

@retro - "Shepherd to Lost Sheep's eBay account" sounds like the divine transfer of wealth that we hear so much about.

...or perhaps the stash that enabled the prodigal's illicit revelry for a brief season (pre-pigpen)!

I'm all for the "Shepherd to Found Sheep's end-time PayPal account". CBB
