Good Morning my friends!
In search of a Permies Philanthropist.
A new Vehicle is needed at Dragon Tech, for faster delivery time.
Last year Ms Pearl located a wonderful patron for us.
The Bugatti Black car has been a wonderful addition to our fleet!
However it just doesn't have nearly enough get up and go!  Also it gets a little hot in the summer... being black and all!

So as an upgrade I have located this Solid Copper replica of a Shelby Cobra.  Complete with 427 race engine... should allow us to merge on those scary highways!
No roof and a top speed some where over 220 mph should keep a guy nice and cool (unlike that black Bugatti)

Coming up for auction soon, expected price  to be just short of a cool half million...  So we don't need a ultra rich philanthropist just an average one.
Many thanks in advance!  As soon as it arrives, place your order at Dragon Tech.  We will race to your door in record time!
Who needs Fedex when you have a Solid Copper Shelby Cobra!

Checks and donation's accepted!

Modesty has always been at the core of all your decisions Thomas! Always looking out for the customer.

As part of this 'Dragon Tech Prime' customer service satisfaction experience, upon delivery you should offer a 10 minute customer ride around the block to impress all their neighbours and friends.
It won't be long before the DT phone starts to ring non-stop to purchase their very own shiny RMH part, even if they don't plan on building one!

Dang. I'm so sorry, Thomas! If I hadn't just bought those 4 Feraris, for St.Jude's, I'd have done it, for you, in a heartbeat! But, you know, the accountants put a limit on our annual donations. Maybe next year...

Before I place a bid, I would like to ask if this was Carroll Shelby's personal vehicle or who forked out that kind of dough?

Is it safe? Does it have airbags? What's its crash test rating?

Ok Thomas!! We have a plan here....
My mom says she'll buy it for you!!
There are strings attached though....

A: It's to be garaged in Missouri.
B: You need to build it a great garage here, something appropriate for it's status (she suggests a classic carriage house with an octagon turret.)  
C: She is hired by you to be the delivery driver, paid for all driving time, including the driving time from Missouri to Montana and back when a delivery needs to be made. Wages are to be commensurate with the quality of the car: awesome car = awesome wages.
D: She doesn't load or unload RMH parts.
E: All maintenance, fees, insurance, fuel etc is your responsibility. You also are required to pay any and all speeding tickets, and to bail her out of jail as necessary. And nice hotels with saunas at all stops.
F: You will also pay for a security guard (who drives in his own car) to guard the car while she sleeps or eats.
G: She is willing to wear an appropriate delivery driver hat.

:D

At first I thought you had mistaken "Daylight Savings Time" for April 1st and had jumped the gun......  :-)

But now I see the logic. A solid copper vehicle of that quality and class would indeed be a fast, furious, and fun locomotive experience all on its own, bestowing Dragons hither and yon like Santa sans reindeer.  Yet with the legend growing, along with the reputation for speed, eventually the authorities would come looking.  And that shiny copper, like the rooftops of old Europe, could quickly become a mottled green, ...... perfect for that alpine camouflage among spruce and pine. Once the danger has passed, a bit of buffing would soon restore the old girl to her graceful state, ready once again for the call of the open road.  Yet I can see that you are exercising the long vision here, even seeing her utility if the shale runs dry and her horses no longer able to run.....

All that copper would love to be reborn in the back holler brewing up some of "Grandma's Recipe".........  ;-)
