    Amazing Investment Opportunity

    Someone needs to buy this:

    http://carbuying.jalopnik.com/this-g...7912/+ballaban

    1991 Geo Metro Cabriolet in Ferrari Red (NOT GM rust) - 548 original miles

    If you are thinking of investing in this only to drive it (gasp), please be aware that it has massive power from its stock 3cyl engine that must be respected. In addition, 1991 Geo Metro Cabriolets (don't call it a convertible you uncouth bastard) were well known to be track beasts, so try not to let it out drive your skill and kiss a wall during the many driving events the GCCA (Geo Car Club of America) puts on.

    Everyone keeps talking about these multimillion dollar Ferraris going up at auction. Ha! This is where real money can be made. Sit on this for another 23 years and it is guaranteed to be worth at least a pack of chewing gum and half a roll of toilet paper.

    If they hear the rumors of someone owning this car the American pickers will sure appear on your doorstep.
    Be prepared to appear on Discovery channel if you own this car...

    With such a low mileage someone was so ashamed of it he'd probably parked it way deep in a shed somewhere...

    The only thing that would be more dodgy is a 1970-something Dodge Colt.

    @ecampbell - I'm interested. Do you have something of similar quality you can put up for equity? Perhaps two (not one - don't cheap out on me) Big Macs from the McDonald's dollar menu?

    We should probably decide upfront which half we each want as it will likely split in two loading it in your enclosed trailer. I'll take the middle half.

    I have ordered a new CargoMate 48' lift gate so hopefully we can get it in the trailer in one piece.

    My current (2013) 48' Vintage trailer is up for sale. Perhaps we could come to a deal where I look after the car on the condition you hold the title to the trailer...you should almost be covered equity wise Click here to enlarge

    Good plan - we should definitely not spare any expense.

    Fixed it for you. And deal. I'll have some paperwork sent over.

    [Easy deal I've ever made...]

    Should have said: [Easiest deal I've ever made...]. Got so excited at our deal I couldn't use proper grammar!

    Come on @Sticky - how can you not see the opportunity here? This is a work of art. A game changer (beat BMW to 3cyl engines by two decades - TWO DECADES). The crème de la crème. It is basically as close to a guaranteed bet as you can get.

    But it really doesn't matter as @ecampbell and I already have big plans for it. BIG. We'll let loose with them when the time is right and we'll see who is laughing then. Click here to enlarge

    Rich, I am serious with selling the 48'.

    http://www.lbtrailers.com/trailers/2...outlaw-12s-lq/

    Big plans for next year and need the stacker and tractor. Will even let the 2014 dually go for a good price as I don't need two tow vehicles.

    That's a fantastic trailer - GLWS! Have any pics of your new setup? Sounds awesome.
