Thanks for all of your support through the years! Here’s to another great season!!
You may have noticed from the website that I am selling my company car, a 2005 Mustang GT. It’s not that I don’t like the car; in fact I love it. And don’t worry, I haven’t lost my love for internal combustion in general. I still have ten cars and seven motorcycles. However, I want to turn the Stang into a High Def television camera. Now where’d I put that magic wand??
I did a similar thing a little over a year ago when I turned my wife’s ’63 Falcon Futura convertible into a kitchen.
This was a beautiful little car but it had a three-on-the-tree, and after Ellen’s double knee replacement about two years ago, driving a clutch wasn’t all that much fun anymore. So she decided that she wanted a new kitchen more than she wanted the Falcon. She’d had it for 10 years and she’d had her fun with it.
Drew Alcazar, the owner of Russo & Steele auction house in Scottsdale, AZ is a friend of mine so I decided to give that a shot. I had never sold a car at auction (or bought one at auction, for that matter) so I didn’t really even know how to go about it.
I had to get it Scottsdale and my first thought was to drive it there. On the surface that seemed like a great idea! One last road trip in the car; just me and the Falcon. Fairly quickly tho, reality set in and I concluded that a 1,700 mile trip in January in a 45 year old car probably wouldn’t be the smartest thing I’ve ever attempted.
