Sold sold sold!  $1,302.00.  It's rolling pin time.  Put your crash helmet on.  Depending of course on the buyer's personal circumstances.  You bought wha?????  That old rusted thing?  Wha?????  Lol!  Hide it until installed.

Bidding now at $1,225.00 with a little over an hour left on the clock.  Somebody is going to have some serious explaining to do when the current ball-and-chain asks: "What did you buy, honey?"
Better to go full submarine on this one.  Rig for silent running, throw in a few crazy Ivans and then you're set.

Bidding holding steady at $760.00. Hopefully the tank didn't come off of a cursed R Model like 5R529. Remember what happened to the drivers who used James Dean's parted out 550 Spyder. If you can believe the legends.

I hope it gets mated up with an original R Model or Trans Am car from the period.  (Or used as an article of automotive worship...yes, I know, I have a screw loose.  I just go with it these days instead of fighting it).

It's good that the hero car is out in the light.  That was a special car to me in my formative years.

Yes to writing a novel about it!

When I saw this car in Traverse City at the Hagerty main office I caught a very strange vibe coming from it. A bit of sadness associated with it. Nice car though. Beautiful historic car!

I thought the story was they didn't know what they had when the started the restoration and sent in for a Marti report when things were well underway?
That's what I heard as well.

I didn't realize how bad the floor pan was.

I should buy it and set up a shrine around the R Model tank for purposes of worshipping the petroleum God.
