You and me both - I'm going to have to come in tomorrow just so I can go on vacation next week but this grabbed me and I can't stop reading.

By the way, you're now favorited as "brains of the Trans Am"

extroverted_suicide: One other thing, then I'll try to stop spamming this thread. The mention for this being charity needs to be way up at the top, bold, embiggened font. Right now it's a single throwaway sentence all the way down at the bottom. No es bueno.


Actually, it's making for some serious lulz from people who don't/can't read and like jumping to conclusions!

Well, Yahoo News in their story mentioned this being for charity, even copy pasting the line into their piece.

I'm sure other big box media sources can read as well. If not, we get sarcastic like only Fark can..."Glad to see you do your due diligence in research before writing up a story."

OTOH, let people know up front what is going on without having to read a full page, no downside, only upside.

This is definitely going to happen.

Over 10% in the first few hours? At that rate by this time next week the goal should be reached.

Awesome.

Hopefully it'll pick up some momentum and we also get a news bump on Monday. Certainly this is wonderful stuff for Stewart or Colbert. Colbert's a huge troops guy, so maybe he'll be interested.

RichieLaw... add some higher-end "Perks" amounts to the Indiegogo. Some folks just like to make sure everyone can see that they gave more than the Fark paupers. (ie Add a $25, $50, $100, $1000, etc).

No need to actually have a Perk, other than bragging rights that they donated so much.

Bashar and Asma's Infinite Playlist: If enough money is raised, you should find a wounded veteran whose dream was to drive a Trans Am, but can't anymore because of missing limbs and whatnot, then retrofit the car so that he or she is able to drive it. Then try to arrange it for Joe to personalize or present it in some way to that veteran.


O.M.G. this bisexual Republican Farkette loves you! That is an awesome idea.

Or the charity route - I'm in either way.

Should we promise some things from OBA or his book?

Promise of professional photos of the event (if it happens)?

Over $1000 you get to get your photo taken in the car?

sex0r: Yes, let's contribute to buy a hack, millionaire politician, who gives less to charity than I do and who hasn't done an honest days work since he's been in any type of elected office, a TransAm.

Are you people farking retarded?


No, I think the people would have to get out of mom's basement to bang lindsey lohan.

No, like Joe I meant what I said. Apparently this is really chapping their asses and I read some really shiatty things. You can imagine. Oh well, though, nothing donating more to charity to spite them can't fix!

The sad thing about this is that people on here will do threads like this to buy Biden a TA, but will they give to Cancer, AIDS, or any other charity? No. But yes, of course, Biden needs a TA.

I think the butthurt posts here jealous of Biden's imminent Trans-am-ery are helping drive up donations.

Over 1600 comments and $2800 raised already? Behold the power of FARK.

Waited too long to claim my beer cozie, but a donation here will do for the next best thing.

I wouldn't promise anything like getting your photo taken with the car. Maybe a photo of the car (if it materializes) at $1000+. Just post them with tongue-in-cheek references to Joe Biden. "Perks" can chew in to the fundraising quickly, and since it's for charity, you want as much going directly there as possible.

This is the most epic thing I have ever seen on Fark.
