I may have “accidentally” bought a 1977 Ferrari 308 GTB. I had been browsing this listing earlier in the day, and I added it to My eBay, just for the heck of it.
I got home and showed it to my wife late in the evening; she thought it looked kind of cool, as did the kids. Egged on by all of them, I entered a bid, and, after verifying my credit card, was immediately outbid. My wife said “Go for $23K, someone will definitely outbid you.” I entered the value but didn’t dare submit it. We laughed and dared each other to push the button. Finally, my son Stephen did the dirty deed. I waited anxiously, hoping to be outbid once again, but happy to see my name on the list of bidders.
10 hours to go on the auction and no other bidders have emerged. I sure hope I will be able to sleep tonight. This will stretch the budget, but I’ve always wanted this exact car; perhaps fate has intervened and I am meant to have this car. I am sure it will look good with a custom Syndic8 license plate on it:
If I win this, it will be the second red car I will have bought, from eBay, in less than 2 months, from a dealer in Texas. This madness certainly cannot continue!
To be continued….
