Best place to sell a car online?

Hey folks,
I'm in the Chicago area and want to sell my 72 Cadillac Eldorado convertible. Do you have any recommendations on the best place(s) to list the car online?

The car is in pretty good shape and I'd like to get it in the hands of someone who will (and can) love it and take care of it.

Appreciate any help/advice you'd have.

EBay. Just be sure to set a reserve. Figure out how much you want for the car, set that as your reserve, and if no one bids high enough, the car doesn't sell. Something like a 72 Eldorado convertible, I can't imagine wouldn't sell. No matter what condition it's in. If it's mint, it will obviously sell. If it's not, someone will still buy it as a project car.
The cool thing about EBay is that people are bidding against each other, which could result in someone paying more than you expected if you get lucky. Also, make sure you say the buyer is responsible for shipping if someone from far away buys it.

You're welcome... any chance you'd want to post the link to the car? I'm not looking to buy it (I probably can't afford it ) but I'd love to take a look at it. I've got a bit of an old Cadillac fetish .
