In case you don't know, you will soon know as the purchase of V-Auto, KBB and soon HomeNet put AutoTrader in a very stragtegic position to implement the Buy It Now button. There goes the old reliable "Did you push the button??!". They very well may have and if you were not on the other end of that buy, you just lost.
