Get Your Paddles Ready! Evangeline Goes To Auction.
Are you ready? Got your home equity papers ready? Grandfather croak and leave you a gazillion smackaroos? Kid turned out to be a looser and dropped out of collage to do what ever people like that do,THUS saving you a small fortune? Well? Then August 19th is your deadline. Cause the boat of all boats is going on the block.
EVANGELINE is going to auction next month (August 19) in Monterey, CA with Mecum Auctions.
Mecum was chosen by the Robinson Restoration Gang, because Dana Mecum is a boat guy (his collection rivals any of the top dogs) and he was already knowledgeable with Evangeline Dahlinger’s interesting backstory. Need a reminder of Evangeline? Well, here is a tease video to warm you up. BTW that’s Texx standing on that boat shooting the photos. Lucky bastard.
You may recall that we have done stories on her being found, restored, relived, and even at Gull Lake were she was a star amongst some serious stars.
She is a show stopper, starter and there is no doubt you would own the dock at The Palm Gardens in Florida. Hell, you would need the entire dock.
You also get to pretend you knew the Ford family. But it could get a tad awkaward since you may recall that Evangeline is..was Henry Fords..” Friend” And maybe you should steer clear of that. Just say’n. See, that boat not only is stunning but has a very intense history. No penny was spared on the restoration, by one of the best teams in the world. It’s breathtaking.
Did your museum just get an infusion of money? Build a wing, Buy some ford cars, have a secret room built upstairs for “couples”. Mr and Mrs Jones. There are countless reasons to buy this, and only one not to. Money, but thats easy. Like Steve Martin Says.
“You can be a millionaire.. and never pay taxes! You say.. “Steve.. how can I be a millionaire.. and never pay taxes?” First.. get a million dollars. Now.. you say, “Steve.. what do I say to the tax man when he comes to my door and says, ‘You.. have never paid taxes’?” Two simple words. Two simple words in the English language: ‘I forgot!’
— Steve Martin
OK, so now you have your tax free Million Dollars, See. So click here on the listing. Its no longer just a fantasy, you can do it. DO IT! DO IT! DO IT! GO! RIDE LIKE THE WIND!
And here is the link to the Mecum listing. You can buy it from your lazy boy in your new trailer cause you sold your house to pull this off. And worth every penny! And billion of them.
Going out to my shop right now and invent something I can sell for a dollar, sell a million of them and wah lah…..
And like the good old days you would have to commission a model for the children.
I think the boat should be gifted to Texx for taking that great video!
I’m calling in my bid from a pay phone
Agree with m-fine
Trying to get my kids to repay me for their educations but they stopped returning my calls.
