"I ended up bidding for it because [I thought] it can't not go anywhere. I couldn't believe Donington were selling it,"


I couldn't help reading that in his voice.

His last "accident" was buying Steve McQueen's old Ferrari California at an auction for 12.5 million. He claims he had only gone to the auction to buy a poster.

Sees what you did there.

If bloody bidding on something that I later regret and can't bloody afford is wrong, I don't bloody want to be right.

I've got a bridge to sell you

That's what the Scientologist said...

300 pounds? A DJ can afford that.
 
2012-09-18 03:30:26 PM
Methinks "accident" is being used interchangeably with "spur of the moment decision" here.
 
2012-09-18 03:31:49 PM
At an auction? You can do some serious damage to yourself. I bid against myself and only the auctioneer caught it.

/only auction I ever went to
//never again

I thought by the headline that this was about Russ Martin.

Known the world over? No

300' bridge in your townhouse? Again, no.
 
2012-09-18 03:37:10 PM
How much for the bridge?

FTFA: "It's a work of art, a national icon."

It's advertising and lots of nations have them.

300 quid?

As long as he's got a place to store it for a while, he's going to make a nice profit. The one thing Jay Leno doesn't have is a race track. That would make a dandy addition to one.

The bridge is not sexy.

FTA: "Other sale items at the Bonhams auction included a Pirelli clock and a model of the World Land Speed Record car, Project Blue Star, which sits on top of the Old Hairpin bridge."

Now, THOSE things could be sexy.

I'm sure the Top Gear guys would love to have that hanging on the wall of the studio or even spanning their track.

Excuse me
Oh will you excuse me
I'm just trying to find the bridge... Has anybody seen the bridge?

Have you seen the bridge?
I ain't seen the bridge!

Where's that confounded bridge?

300 pounds for a bridge seems like a rather good deal. If one wants a bridge, that is.

PapaChester: 300 pounds? A DJ can afford that.


He's only really a part time DJ. See $12 million Ferrari comment earlier...
 
2012-09-18 04:00:47 PM
Yeah, it's unique. Where else are you going to find a Dunlop tire going over the track? TOTALLY UNIQUE!

/I didn't buy anything but I'm not a conceited loser because I made everyone pay more.


It's an auction. No one MADE anyone buy anything.

Jument: 300 pounds for a bridge seems like a rather good deal. If one wants a bridge, that is.


well, truth be told, the bridge is still there, what he got was a bunch of fiberglass cladding that was attached to said bridge, and 300p pounds is pretty damn cheap for advery art like that.. too lazy to look up the exchange rate.. something like $500/600 american I think..

if dude can afford 12 mil on a car, he can certainly afford to transport and store this.

granted... there isn't much use for the dang thing outside of it's original context.. aint like a Bobs big boy statue that would make a very delightful addition to my garden statuary... I could arrange all the gnomes around it like they are worshiping it as an idol.

I accidentally a bridge- THE WHOLE THING!
