I'm always looking for a story behind the story, and there's probably a juicy one here. Or, maybe more than one.
There are the obvious, uh, 'stance' issues (which were a hot topic in the auction comments).
There's the fact that one of the early bidders raised his own bid by $2500.
And I don't know the auction biz well enough to understand how things end up in the 'Hot Deal' pot, for about $5000 more than the last actual bid. Is this what's known as the 'buy it now' price on other sites? If it is, why would someone buy it now (or ever) for $5000 more than the last bid?
There's the intrigue of the Arizona connection.
And, there's always the possibility that Troy knows more than he's letting on.
Anything more mysterious and we could have the makings of a Stephen King story here. (Who knows what will come to light when the frunk is opened?)
The combination of gross fitment errors and 'luxury' features like diamond stitch 'leather' is almost a caricature of a kit car. And the repeated mention of 'handcrafted' running through the copy to remind us of the high level of finish is a nice touch, too.
I'm just wondering if this car wasn't given to someone to pay off a debt when a certain business went upside down and liquid assets were in short supply.
Nah, probably just my overactive imagination.
