Chalk it up to another weird sell on eBay! This ended Feb-09-09 12:01:45 PST for $186,853.09. A week prior to that, the bid was at $400,000. Apparently some of the bidders took themselves out. Perhaps they got scared they would end up paying that kind of money for a toilet door.
Here is the information taken right off the eBay site for the listing.

After receiving National and International attention from this auction, I will have a sit-down interview tonight on the Fox Business channel with David Asman on the show "America's Nightly Scoreboard." The story has made international headlines and the exposure ranges from UK and Holland to Japan and beyond. Just about every media outlet is following this auction closely to see who the winning bidder will be. I have multiple interviews lined up for after the auction closes and the media will be focused on 2 things for their coverage: 1) How much did it sell for? 2) Who bought it? Best of luck to all bidders!
