I paused Belafonte to watch the bidding video, and was not disappointed. I would be a bundle of nerves facing that. Ebay freaks me out enough.

Haha! You got me with that one! I clicked because the smoke obscured car looked like my wife’s 2002 Thunderbird! I was thinking weirdness at beer level and you went tequila on me!

What a delightful little lemon! I look forward to seeing some wrenching articles and driving articles pertaining to it. That paint scheme is gorgeous.

You got the lemon/lime motor pants – congratulations! That’s a sweet little car. Can’t wait to see what kind of fun adventures you have with it.

Woohoo!! Congratulations!! 😀

That is an absolute jewel of a little car, and I look forward to reading about it.

And agreed: getting something excellent like that at an auction really is a heck of a feeling.

Be honest, were you a little disappointed the auctioneer wasn’t talking like a micro-machines spokesperson?

Congratulations.
It looks like a lot of fun.
It would never be safe in my care, two strokes can make such wonderful fleeting power. (-;

I would get too excited and raise my own bid. I just know it.

Congrats to Beau and Jason both… that little yellow beauty is definitely one of the more irresistible vehicles posted in these pages lately! 😀

Congratulations on the “new” car! I imagine it’ll be a fun little car for you Jason.

Having bought a car at auction, and bid but lost on several more, I completely agree with your opening paragraph. It can be a very emotion roller coaster bidding on a car, wondering if you’ll get it or how much it’ll go for, the devastation when the costs go beyond what you were hoping for and the excitement of being declared the winner.
