PostSubject: Christine Promo Movie Car Invites its Members to Its New HOME!!!   Thu Feb 05, 2015 10:19 pm

First off , my name is Bob Bartosiewicz and one of your members John,who bought a wicked cool 69 ram iv gto from me 2 years ago, text me about this site. Thanks john!... I specifically went to Barrett on tuesday for the purposes of buying this car.Knowing the car sold for 170,000 eleven years earlier, i was anticipating a 275k all in price;250 +the 10 percent commission.Many people didnt realize that tuesday was horrible weather wise in Az, so i was hopeful that may have discourage some rich car enthusiasts in going . After the 1990s version Beverly hillbilly truck sold for 275k , i upped my pledge to 305k before commissions. I figured, there was no way Christine with all its movie documentation was not going to be in the 300s ....easy!One guy next to me said im out!!!!I couldnt believe my eyes; why he left i found out later!If you watched the bidding it went to 170,000 in almost 30 seconds. At this point, i had yet to bid . i couldnt believe my ears, it staaaaaallleeed!!! for like 45 seconds to a minute.So i thought i bid 175,000.;however,the lady that was the tv person said someone just bid 175k. So after taking a drink of vodka , i went 180k,prepared  to fight to at least 300k, but willing to go that extra 5k.Then 15 seconds later the hammer dropped.ASTONISHED!!!... The guy, who left, comes to me 2 hours later blown away. i asked him why he left;he over heard me telling my friend my number; he was afraid it would have a been a bidding war.....over the next three days when i was at my car, i was offered on 4 separate occasions  more than 225k ; the highest being 253k .The collector figured i would fold for a pair of large nickles in my pocket.Everyone of those offers came from people that arrived on friday . WHY this car wasnt at Pratts  Saturday Selection is beyond me..Keith Merchants Magazine editor came over and asked me questions...also stating how  great of a buy this was..... BTW you are all welcome to come see the car when it arrives ,sometime this coming week.....or anytime rochesterautomuseum.com    bob

Congrats Bob,

I own and operate two Drive in theaters a few hours down the road from you. El Rancho in Palatine Bridge,NY and Ozoner 29 twin in Broadalbin,NY. I'll have to come check your cars out. I collect and display my movie car clones at the theatres and plan on retro nights with their movies as well. I'm thinking of expanding my pole barn and my collection to include a Drive in movie car museum at The Ozoner 29 twin location.

You've got a real beauty with that Christine.

Enjoy,

Bill

Hello Bob...So glad to have you here with us at the CCC. I'm a Rochester native and look forward to meeting you some day soon. We have a mutual friend in John Fox. He has told me a lot about you and your cars. I'm the guy with the 58 Desoto that he may have told you about. I look forward to meeting you soon and seeing Christine too. Thanks for doing "cars and coffee" last year. I hope you will do this again in 2015. Congratulations on getting Christine in your collection!

Bob

Welcome, Bob; we're honored. I'm back East and Rochester would be a real haul but a Christine pilgrimage is not out of the question.

Congratulations Bob! You've got an icon there! Lady luck was on your side by the sound of it. You must be a real die hard fan to have turned down the opportunity to almost double your investment. Let us know when she arrives and is set up! We'll make a visit to your museum a club event!

Kind Regards,
Wayne
