Acquisition

I purchased roadster #SRL-31101633 on March 28th, 2005. I had been watching the bidding for the car on ebay throughout the week and on Monday afternoon the auction was approaching its end. The price had been $3900 for a couple of days and I was willing to pay more, so before I left work I placed a bid for $3950. I was surprised to find out that I was the high bidder. I drove home, and was again surprised to see that I was still the high bidder with only five minutes remaining in the auction. Fully expecting to be sniped in the last seconds, I watched in disbelief as my lone bid won the auction! Click here to see a copy of the ebay listing for the roadster.

Here is the car, loaded up for her trip from Seattle on April 8th.

This is how she looked when she arrived the morning of the 14th, right at home in the garage.


I met the driver at a local truck stop. To be on the safe side, we had her towed back to the house. The breaks were very soft.
