Well, the ad's been up just over a week. 3 contacts, but no additional questions or tire-kickers yet.

I even adjusted the price to make it a tie for the cheapest Mirage within 1000 km of my postal code (out of 167 Mirages).

The strangest thing is I have gotten ZERO lowball offers. That's a first - usually I get one or two within a day of posting any car for sale ad.

Talking to a couple of other sellers, the market ranges from dead to very quiet.

I upped the ante with this new pic in the ad...
