Yes I was briefly tempted by the old Mustang but. fortunately, I was sober enough not to take the bait. Besides, I figured I already had a Mustang project car that wasn't getting any attention.
As with many of the "deals" you find at Pate, there is always a back story, just like you may hear when out hunting or fishing with your buddies. Something about the conquest makes the story more "unique".
Of course, just like any "buddy" trip, there is always someone giving your advice or encouraging you to "go for it" . We were trying to convince the nephew to buy the Delorean golf cart. After all, he already has a real Delorean.
The details alone made it a prize - working flux capacitor, Mr Fusion, smoke generator.
Unfortunately, the price of the golf card was equal to what he actually paid for his actual Delorean. so that pretty much was a deal killer right there.
Of course, that did not stop us from "test driving" or checking out some of the other deals.
Doesn't everyone need a backhoe?
Of course, it required a "little" work
An old Westfalia Vanagon. This one is for my brother out west in Washington. He owns one of these campers.
The nephew used to own one a Firebird back in college (Smokey & The Bandit version - complete with the screaming chicken on the hood). A real money pit. That is why he bought the hood to hang in his back yard as "yard art".
After we hauled it back to our trailer and set it up so we could admire our daily haul we noted something interesting. It may have been the scotch talking but I swore that you could see the face of Jesus on the hood and THAT is why he had to buy it.
