An interesting advertisement appeared on SF Bay Area craigslist yesterday for a lot of 8 classic automobiles. The full list is: 1969 Porsche 912, 1968 Porsche 912 targa,
1967 912 targa, 1963 Mercedes-Benz 230 SL W113, 1973 BMW 2002 ,
1961 VW Type 1, 1962 VW Type 1, 1963 VW Type 1 and the seller is asking $120,000 for the entire lot. Kaibeezy found the link and delivered it with a brilliant concept: he should take $15,000 from 8 people and distribute the cars randomly! i’d aaaaalmost do it. Find it here on craigslist.
Imagine for a minute, that someone was to launch a kick starter or indie go-go campaign with 8 available spots at $15k each. After the requisite number of folks signed up, the deal would be done and all buyers would show up for a big warehouse party and put their name in a hat. No matter what, everyone would go home happy….unless you got stuck with the one of the Beetles. But still…
Better yet, would you put $150 in for a 1/100 chance of winning one?
