    Default A raffle for a worthwhile cause, winner takes a 79 SE Trans Am

    This is to help spread the word for this raffle from a couple of other sites I frequent. Thanks to OLO for letting me start this subject in it's own thread.

    This raffle will benefit the St. John’s Home in Grand Rapids, Michigan and provides a variety of programs and services for troubled kids. Only 1000 tickets are being sold, and there is a cash option of $20,000.

    Info on the raffle can be found at:
    http://www.78ta.com/raffle08.htm

    Info on the car itself can be found at:

    Damn, that car would make Burt proud! It's extremely well taken care of, I'll say.

    Well....I have an agreement w/ the wife to NOT buy any more cars until I buy her a Mustang. So, if I buy a raffle ticket and somehow win as extremely unlikely as it is, I would have still kept to my promise.

    Well, technically, you wouldn't have bought the car.

    Great Car and I love that it's going for charity.

    There was a Detroit Tigers relief pitcher named Jamie Walker that went to free agency and signed a sweetheart deal with the Orioles after the '06 season. The first "big time" purchase he made was an '81 Trans Am with a "I heart Dixie" plate that Troy Percival built.

    TRANS-AM!

    I had a 1980 Turbo Trans-Am for a couple of years. Damn, that car was fun! I put a lot of love into that car... by the time I sold it, it was in EXCELLENT shape! I sold it to a friend of mine, (I know, bad idea!), and when I did, I specifically told him that the car burns a lot of oil. Never leaked it but burned a lot because of the turbo. You HAVE to keep checking the oil!!! Well, about a month after I sold it to him, I get a call... He blew the engine and completely destroyed the turbo system. I could have cried... After that, he just let the car sit and rot.... I swear it nearly broke my heart....

    Right?

    Dude you win that ride, I'm making the next Texas shindig. Hell if you win that car I"ll buy her a new mustang. Only if I get to really break in the TA.

    Is this binding in a court of law? I hope not. Out.
