I'll concede living in it (assuming the frames aren't broken and it doesn't need to be gutted) but you definitely do not want to burn that wood, lead paint galore. Though I suppose if it's in good enough to float condition you usually do get enough electricity included with the slip to not freeze to death with electric heaters.

Get in line.

Ok. Hopefully it's able to move with you and you do bring it to the challenge to kick my ass one day.

I intended to kick your ass with it this year, but I'm gonna give you a break.

I figured a 300 hp Lotus should do it.

You'll have to be nice to me this year. Next year I'll kick your ass.

Umm, your memory is not serving you very well. I know, because I have it!

Ok, for the cost of playing, this is worse than the free Europa. $350 for that, vs what you paid....

I hear you. (And, I did get a (Lotus) chassis, so I am ahead of the game)

But anyone's view of "value" would change after the amount of fiberglass work that thing has needed.

It's hard to tell how much work that needs, but if you say the free one was worse, maybe you overpaid.

At that price wrap it in John Player Special livery and screw it to the wall.

Still wondering how they are using the "frame" of a unibody car.
