You may remember the board auction I had a few weeks ago, where I was selling a 1:24 custom JL Mustang to help raise money for our very own Stupid Squirrel's (beloved PIP master). This was to help with John's moving expenses, and thanks to our own Red Dwarf II for his winning bid! I know it ment a lot to John, and I think the box of goodies found a good home.

Well, now it looks like chapter two! A Hobby Talk member has sent me a beautful, rare 1970 Dodge Superbee RED TEST SHOT to sell on behalf of John. When I asked why not sell it himself, he simply reply was that he prefered to stay private. This had been a gift to him from the RC2 /JL team, and he did say he could provide validation to the winning bidder if they requested. WOW!!!!

There are a lot of great diecast boards out there, but none can top HT for just an amazing bunch of people! I have been instructed to sell this test shot on the Bay as to reach an even larger stage. I don't know how to link over there, but the listing number is 220071824809. But this post is more about how amazed I am that someone would do this than just the listing information.

I will post this on the correct auction thread. But being that this is 100% for John, ( I will pay all listing fees, and ALL money will be sent right to John) I wanted to let you all know that we are among some wonderful people! Thanks to this member who made this possible! :thumbsup: I will keep you all posted! :wave:

Holy Cow folks....22 hours in and it's allready at $61.00! Carnut could be right on this one ( I guess there is a first time for everything...sincker) But this could "go large"!

And as for as the pay pal issue Dragnet, I am not set up with a pay pal account. This keeps my buying on a tight reign. By trading in cash only ( I even send MO's to our OLD's) it keeps me buying with my head and not my desire. But John has a pay pal account. Maybe it would be possible to pay him directly. I don't know how that works, but I will sak him.

On behalf of John and the donor...THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

Ward, check with John (by phone I suppose, he's not on the 'puter now) and see if he's OK with getting paid via PayPal. I suspect he would be okay with that, and you could alter the listing to reflect that PayPal is now accepted (allows more bidders into the pool, folks who only pay using PayPal). :thumbsup:

Rich, I will call John today, but it would be to late to adjust the auction. But I agree, I can't imagine he would mind being paid directly.

As for changing the auction, once a bid has been placed, are you locked down? I can't remember. I would hope I could fly that info into the auction.

I have to work doubles today, but I will do my best to research and let you guys know what I come up with!
