    I'm done bidding, the car is 10K plus from being nice, and front fenders aren't cheap.

        Hey Bob, Going to Disney next week? We may be going up in the next couple of weeks.Don't mean to rub it in but Florida residents do get annual passports on the cheap. Wayne
        You bet- I have to bring some money to a good friend, a Mr. M. Mouse We'll be there Sat. afternoon 9/15 till the following Sunday[^]

        We're into the whole deal- DVC, annual passes, etc. Doing the Dining plan this time, though; room (onsite), admissions, all meals for a week for $445/person-TOTAL[:0] That's what brings us down during hurricane season the last few years[8D]
        Also got direct flight from Syracuse, NY to MCO (Orlando) for $129 round-trip each! Bringing the in-laws this time- son (17) didn't want to go; wants to wait till our usual Feb. trip...

        P.S. Know what "MCO" means?

                It's right @ $15 grand, and the reserve isn't met. Bob you still in the hunt?

                    Low mileage is nice, but I'd prefer a 100K mile solid car. Either of the forum member R2's are much nicer cars.

                        I'm thinking hard about it. Two things that interested me in this one:

                        1. It's a survivor- which is very attractive if it's in really good shape

                        2. It's not far from me, which means I can easily go and examine it in person- a BIG advantage.

                        The Studes I currently have are my hobby-quality cars. This one would be an investment car, like my Lincoln Conv. That means it would be preserved and maintained, and driven in nice weather. My new building will give me more climate-proof stalls.

                        Some buy 401Ks or the like; I have conventional investments too. This is a supplement!

                                Update:

                                Turns out this car is about 2 hrs. from me. Wasn't able to get down to see it before my vacation, so I didn't bid further...

                                Still debating contacting the seller about it, but am leaning towards not; after all, I AM mostly a Lark guy

                                And, you never know when a really nice Lark will surface......
