Cute little thing. Holy cow, a fully restored KR200 goes for 50k... pricey little so-and-sos, aren't they? Maybe down the road, for the Mrs' tiny car collection. I'll show it to her.
Between parental stuff, juggling calls, and business junk, I did finalize with the guy who owns the `88 M5. We agreed on $15,500 delievered, and that's very fair. He's only in Birmingham, so he's going to load it on a trailer and deliver it himself. I mentioned that I could pay a service $500 to deliver it or I could pay him, since he's relatively close, and he jumped on that. Also, this way I get to meet him, ask questions, and actually check out the car before buying. I swore, swore
on my grandmother's soul, to my wife that this is absolutely the last car I'll buy until the Aston is squared away. The meatheads at my garage are fixing the Cobra and are going to go ahead and do the mods and paint. The Aston is coming along, slowly but surely, complete nut and bolt restos take time, especially when it's only 2 people doing it.
Oh, and everyone, meet Emma, our new foster daughter. Like I mentioned before, she is distantly related to my wife and we are planning to adopt when the system lets us. She's a real cutie, IIDSSM, and very curious.
Thoroughly investigating her nana's camera (before trying to chew on it a few seconds later).Edited by Magick Man - 12/7/12 at 8:34pm
