You know, for once, I'm interested in seeing what they're doing. If only because it's my car.

The episode probably won't air until the fall when the new season starts. There's a very good chance you'll see my ugly mug in it.

I will say if the car was left black, I would have probably taken it home. I could have really used that hood and a few other things.

Freakin' Eric. LOL. Must've been a fun day. Did you show them how to drive it! haha
How many buyers were interested?

Thanks to Blugg for putting us on the map.

I have a feeling asking prices for Merks will rise when that episode airs.
