Thumbs up Congrats to Andy's Auto Repair

Fortunately, yesterday, Andy was outbid on a poor recreation ( IMO) of The Griswold's car;

but, today he was able to score this 67 GTX Hemi car

Re: Congrats to Andy's Auto Repair

He definitely got the better of the two. That or you have a sick sense of humor Mike. I'm guessing that he didn't even bid on the griswold car.

Re: Congrats to Andy's Auto Repair

Andy had some great luck. Beautiful car!

If you lend someone $20, and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

The guy who paid over 6 figures for that fugly wagon is the one with the sick sense of humor.

Andy told me that he was outbid yesterday when it hit 65K. (Thank Goodness).

I think it turned out well.

Re: Congrats to Andy's Auto Repair

Mike, since you guys are good friends, maybe you should help Andy find some professional help. He has something seriously wrong with him if he was gonna drop 65K on that.

Damn Mike. I reread the text. What a difference a period makes. I was at $6500. Not $65,000. Although it was INCREDIBLY well done, it was a $10k prop to me. Lemme get some pics loaded up. It was a really coo, ride home.

Couple of junkers and a few clunkers.

Re: Congrats to Andy's Auto Repair

Thanks Mike. The car is everything the old lady said it was. Fast, runs good, and everything works. The bias ply redlines are going to take some getting used to.

What matters to me.

Drive straight, just don't turn faster than 25 MPH.

They make them redlines in radials now

Re: Congrats to Andy's Auto Repair

I have every confidence in your getting used to the "Redline" Tires....You can burn them off rather quickly with no harm to the drivetrain and replace them with something a little less period correct but safety correct. Congratulations.....

Ideas are like children: there are none so wonderful as your own.
