Some dude is selling 8 classics (912, Type 1, SL Merc, BMW 2002) for $120k on craigslist right now...but what if the buyers were a group of 8 folks who each put in $15k and their names in a hat. Would you risk the chance of overpaying for a Bug to get a deal on a 912 or W113 SL?
The full list is: 1969 Porsche 912, 1968 Porsche 912 targa, 1967 Porsche 912 targa, 1963 Mercedes-Benz 230 SL W113, 1973 BMW 2002 , 1961 VW Type 1, 1962 VW Type 1, 1963 VW Type 1 and the seller is asking $120,000 for the entire lot. Find it here on craigslist.
Imagine for a minute, that someone was to launch a kick starter or indie go-go campaign with 8 available spots at $15k each. After the requisite number of folks signed up, the deal would be done and all buyers would show up for a big warehouse party and put their name in a hat. No matter what, everyone would go home happy....unless you got stuck with the one of the Beetles. But still...Better yet, would you put $150 in for a 1/100 chance of winning one?
