BACK IN THE U S A
Or How To Make $27,316.00 In 4 Months Time *
*Buy Yourself A Cadillac --- Well Cared For With Low Mileage ---- This Baby Shows Only 36,271 Miles, Not Bad For A 77 Year Old Car
TAKE A SEAT AND I'LL TELL YOU ABOUT IT
Last Halloween ( Oct 31, 2007 ) When This Fine 1931 Cadillac Tourer, That Originally Belonged To Leonard Bonney's Widow Flora, Crossed The Auction Block In England, It Had 36,268 Miles On It And Sold For The Sum Of $82,316.00 , Which Was Well Below The Estimate of $90 - 110,000 They Predicted It To Bring. The Buyer Was Careful Not To Rack Up Too Many Miles ( It has rolled just 3 miles since) And Brought It Back Home To USA. It Was Just Auctioned Off Again, In Early March At Amelia Island, Florida, Where It Went For $110,000.00. Now Minus The Shipping, (the buyer pays the auction fee) I Would Say The Seller Did Ok. As Did The Same Auctioneers (R&M)
Now Considering The Economic Times Many Of Us Are Dealing With, It's Pretty Obvious That The New Owner Isn't Too Worried About The Gas Mileage. It Probably Gets Around 8 - 10 MPG. If The New Owner or Owners, Cares To Know Some Very Obscure & Colorful History About Flora Bonney, It Won't Cost Them A Dime ....... Please Feel Free To Contact Me Here
Did I miss the skyscrapers, did I miss the long freeway?
From the coast of California to the shores of Delaware Bay
You can bet your life I did, till I got back to the U. S. A.
I'm Assuming By The Plate That The New Owner Is A Floridian?
However I'm Not Quite Sure What The Message Above The Plate Really Means Or Whom It Is Directed At ?
It Says : " We Are For A .... FREE AMERICA .... If U Aren't ... Get Going? " or Gone? or Out ? ....
"Oh Well , Oh Well , I Feel So Glad Today " ... C. B.
