Or, since the election is over, why not give the money to a group that can do something better than buy an old car for an internet in-joke.

I don't think cancer's been cured yet. And that soup kitchen that Paul Ryan screwed over still needs help too.

Money's going to charity, the soup kitchen got more than it wanted, and you can't cure cancer, you cock.

There will be haters, threadshiatters and general jerks invading this thread to derail it. Please ignore them- if they are not engaged they will leave.

This is a great thing we are doing even if it's wrapped inside a very silly concept. So let's remember that and Give Joe The Bird.

Why did the amount raised go down?
 
2012-11-07 02:00:35 PM  

get real: Why did the amount raised go down?


Obama's green fees
 
2012-11-07 02:23:56 PM  
It's going to turn out just fine.

Not enough money will be raised to buy a real TransAm, take it to DC, and then take it to auction. Joe will get his Matchbox TransAm, most of the donations will go to the charities, and all will be good.

Here's something that I've been rather interested about...

How are you guys gonna spend Thanksgiving Day, now that Obama has been reelected?.

Isn't absurd to be worshiping at the feet of career politician anyways and I don't care what party for the sake of argument. ( I'll never vote for a Bush surname or offspring .)

Old Uncle Joe been at the public trough for decades and is now grooming his sons to take his place.

Doesn't that make a even a little bell ring ? And this just feeds into being an to that egotism.


///Post Election rant

Ever notice Politician when they step down or make announcement they practical sound like Hollywood Stars. Talking about the sacrifice made and hard work.
"yeah I train really hard for my role ..only made $5 million for six months work..but I was on set at 6:30 A.M." )

( Yeah we reached across the aisle and hammered out another regulation after checking with our special interest groups.)

You know who work and sacrificed ? The men and women on their third deployment overseas. Going to some community college to become a EMT or HVAC tech.

Not some old Uncle Joe with an army of staffers and health and pension plans stuff to the max and speaking engagements and some ghost written book to sell.

The worst thing about Obama election is not Obama and his platform,but that the mistrust and cynicism for politicians have been replaced by unshaken faith in cult of personality.

Raise money so you can buy a car to auction off that will only get a fraction of what you payed for it?

Ridiculous.

I said it was gambling with donation money weeks ago, but I'm told if Joe Biden poses with the car, it will be worth upwards of, like, a lot of money.

The attention span of the average Farker is at most 2 weeks, never ever run a fund raising event longer. Things happen and we move on to the next needy fund.

Yup. As the owner of a 69 Firebird, the much more logical thing seems to be to find a guy in the DC area with a Trans Am that likes this idea. Have him detail it up and meet with Biden and the Farkers, snap some photos, let Joe drive his car around the block, and then donate the money. Aside from a couple showpiece cars, the Firebird/Trans Am area of classic cars is not an auction goldmine.

/of course the other issue for this project is Biden's people have ignored all outreach attempts from this
