The chrome is polished, the stripes are pinned (give us a break—we’re excited), and the eBay-sourced parts are all in place. Now that the four BUILT from eBay teams are done, their cars are headed back from whence they came—the eBay auction block. Not before the Team Lowrider, Four Wheeler, Hot Rod, and Eurocar machines all come together in the same room along with their respective team leaders for a good old-fashioned car guy meet-up.
When we last left the teams, road tests had been performed and the builds were starting to wind down. As impressive as they all looked then, they’re simply stunning now. Team Lowrider’s ’66 El Camino in particular looks amazing, even before you get a good look at the “before” shot of its condition when Duran’s Quality Painting got a hold of it. The guys all get a kick out of the Mackey’s Hot Rods WWII fighter jet-styled van, while Brian Mackey himself notes that Off-Road Evolution’s Team Four Wheeler Jeep “means business, dude.” When Michael Essa fires up GSR Autosport’s Team Eurocar 911, it’s hard not to smile along with everyone else in the room.
Of course, BUILT from eBay is a competition as well, so there’s no shortage of smack to be talked. The team leaders all make their cases for why their build should voted the best by you, the eBay Motors public. You make the decision, however, so go to http://www.builtfromebay.com/ to watch the previous episodes, explore the work that went into the builds, and decide for yourself which team to support. After a winner emerges from fan voting, all four BUILT from eBay vehicles will go up for auction with proceeds going to the charities of each team’s choosing (info on each charity is also up on the BUILT from eBay website). Don’t miss this last episode of BUILT from eBay, and check out all the great episodes and build information on the site!
