'71 Honda 1300 Coupe 9 S on eBay: 2 days left, no bids at $6,600!

If you're predisposed to sitting around wasting your workday looking for new project cars on eBay or craigslist, you've probably seen or heard about the 1971 Honda 1300 Coupe 9 S on eBay. It caused a minor sensation in the online world when the car was listed on ebay last week.

Everyone's favorite tabloid auto-gossip site Jalopnik was all over this like flies on shit automotive journalists at a free buffet. Their writeup of the car can be found here. For some background on what the Coupe 9 is and why it's significant, you might also check out Jalopnik's article nominating the Coupe 9 S to their "Fantasy Garage".

Full disclosure here: We (Motoring J Style) are the sellers of the Coupe 9 S. However, I'm frankly stunned that there are no bids with two days to go. Is everyone holding out until the last minute, or won't the market sustain this relatively modest price?

Time will tell, but I'll be the first to say that if this car gets no bids, I'll gladly put it away until I have time to restore it properly in the future!
