Caitlin-FPG Lorelai Swaddling Auction: LAST Day – LAST Hours!
Samurai60-David & Samuel R . has graciously and generously put together FOUR great CARS package that are great by themselves but have again, generously and graciously agreed to donate all proceeds to our friend Caitlin L. From David’s own words …
“As many of you know, Caitlin (futurepixargoddess) is due with baby Lorelai in March. The Samurai family wanted to do something for baby Lorelai but also for the Take 5 family that has continued to grow over the last couple of years. The Samurai family is putting up 4 lots of Cars for a sealed bid, silent auction. ALL of the money raised during this auction will go to Lorelai so that she can hopefully buy something relatively substantial for herself when the time comes. Long time and active Take 5 member Samuel has also donated Cars for this, the custom Apple Car, the Sidewall Shine, Bubba and Mater pack and the Gold Ransburg McQueen and Rescue Squad Mater from the Blu-Ray package! Email your bids with the name of the lot in the subject line and in the message your bid to email@example.com Bidding ends at midnight MST on Friday, March 5th. I have a reserve on these lots (approx. the retail price, not the eBay price!) so I can make sure that baby Lorelai can buy something good! Only the winning bidder will be contacted. Bidder is responsible for shipping costs. Spread the news to friends and family! Dig deep for a great cause for a great member! Thanks Take5″
Lot One: McQueen and Chase Lot
This lot contains one of the holy grails of Cars collecting; a sealed in baggie, never opened Blu-Ray McQueen that was released a couple of years ago as a promo by Disney. There were only 15000 made. This has the correct date stamp on the bottom 2427EA. This lot also includes a 2008 San Diego Comic Convention exclusive Lightning Storm McQueen. This was taken out of the box and white tissue paper only to take this photo. Also included is a Desert Back 12 Lightning McQueen, chase King with Piston Cup, chase Mario, chase DJ, chase Darryl, chase Ferrari and Chase Salutin’ Sarge.
