A Mostly British Obsession

Oh noes!

Mk I, I Hardly Knew Ye

I decided that rather than letting the Mk. I languish for years, I should sell it to someone who would be interested in working on it right away.

Nice guy named Daniel picked it up from me today. Interesting adventure to get to this point, though. Ran the ad three times on Craigslist and encountered every lame “buyer” you could find: people hot-to-trot who never pick it up, people wanting to hot-rod it, people needing to sell a car first, even a guy who wrote me a treatise on why the car was over-priced at $1,000.

In any case, I hope the car comes back from purgatory. I have high hopes.

What can I say? When I show up to look at a rusty heap and people I know are showing up as well (hi, Constance and Doug) there’s really not much I can do other than say “sure, I’ll take it.” It is very complete and very original. Plus the now former owner said it can stay where it is until my shop is ready.
