That was most definitely NOT built by Carey and the boys in Indiana. Must have been a basic kit that somebody "built" at home.

Even if they built it originally 30 years ago who knows what previous owners have done to it to "make it their own". And I'm seriously not believing the 16K miles on the clock. That interior looks like its had 50K or more miles put on it. Of course the other possibility is that it has been mistreated all those years and miles.

No this is a very early CA "Generation 1" kit.  Primative compared to what we do today, BUT overall body/chassis the same (sans hinges/latches) and still a whole lot of fun!  I was getting accustomed to seeing these Gen 1 cars get to the $40k+ mark, and mostly because they were going to countries that require the car be 25-30 years old (like France) but all of our used stuff is going crazy, and the busier we get with new builds, the crazier the used stuff gets!

@Panhandle Bob been doing that for years with used cars and consignments.  We'd put a lot of extra time and money to make a car near perfect and updated, and we could pull a fair premium compared to the general market.  Unfortunately now there is little to no "wholesale" market on them since just about every client has internet and has seen BAT... but they're getting that "updated" money for a car that is a lot more of a starting point to a project in my eyes...

A title I wear with humility.

The latest calamity was what we refer to as the Thanksgiving Apple Sauce Incident. Somehow I got on the wrong end of a Viking Immersion Blender while liquefying the apple sauce.

They saved the end of my right index finger but it was pretty well sliced and diced and cut into the bone. No feeling in the end of it and it's butt ugly but I am working on portraying it in a more glamourous manner. My neighbor the anesthetist told me to tell the emergency room folks that an alligator did it as I was saving a puppy from it's jaws. Otherwise they would laugh at the truth.

They laughed at the truth.

Don't eat the pink applesauce.

Isn’t that the truth, the delta between wholesale price is so near the selling price and the amount of repairs that are required in my opinion make no sense to buy used unless it is a new build to a dissalusioned owner that meets your dream.

On top of that BAT to me is near extravagant with the fees etc
