click above image to see more views of John and his General Lee

We all knew this was coming. As many expected, the person who entered the winning bid of $9,900,500 for John Schneider's personal 1969 Dodge "General Lee" Charger on eBay Motors last week has withdrawn it. Or at least, that's what we're led to believe by negative feedback left by Schneider, who on eBay goes by johnsebiz, on the profile of fellow eBay user fishbashr1.

Schneider left the comment, "This is the guy that for fun, decided to bid on the General Lee. Thanks...." The comment was left at 2:57PM on Sunday, May 7th.

On the auction page for item #250108256198, fishbashr1 is listed as the winning bidder, which is pretty damning evidence that this transaction is not going to take place and that the General will remain in Schneider's possession.

We know what you're really worried about, though. What will become of the sequel to Schneider's self-financed film Collier & Co., Hot Pursuit! that was reportedly going to be financed by the sale of John's General Lee? It's in fate's hands now.

Thanks for the tip, WiZZla!

      I think that fishbashr1 is likely to have his ebay and paypal accounts canceled. That might not be the end of it as binding on an auction then walking away from the deal can bring a whole lot of troubles, particularly at this level. People think that ebay is a game, but you are still entering into a contract when you bid on an item. Since this was such a high profile auction, I would think that ebay and the seller would be inclined to send the lawyers in...

      Honestly, I'm surprised that, passed a certain level, they didn't require a deposit or bank letter of credit. That's usually what is done in high-end auctions, to make sure this sort of thing does not happen.

      Well I e-mailed the Bidder. According to him, his account was hacked into and the News should break tomorrow explaining the situation. We'll wait to see

      Does this mean they'll be sending me a Second Chance Offer? ;)

      What's even better is that someone who goes by 'dirtrider2004' has bid on a bunch of the auctions where 'fishbashr1' is the seller and has left 6 additional negative feedback with messages like: "Hey! It's fun to place bids for nothing! Pay-backs are +itch!"

      I guess fishbashr1's not going to be selling any more knives.

      Ha ha yeah exactly big surprise.

      In other news: water is wet and the sky is blue.

      Only a moron would have paid that for the Gen. Lee.
