but there it is--if you let something valuable go to waste, you'll be lucky to get 10% of it's value!
another evel knievel life lesson from the grave.
: I was purging old emails and found this one
: from Krystal. I had asked her about buying
: Evel's Mack and this was the deal they
: wanted. Classic Kelly Knievel.
: O.K. I had to talk to Kelly about this
: because he is a partner in the corporation.
: This is what he thinks:
: I will first send you pics of the truck and
: trailer so you can see what condition it is
: in currently. We had started the intial
: restoration before that fell apart so it is
: much like the truck in Dillon...stripped
: down. With that said Mack had already
: provided us with the replacement parts for
: the exterior and I can have those
: inventoried if you need to know what those
: are. Evel negotiated that deal so I am not
: in the know as to what exact parts they
: Now, relative to what we would like to get
: out of this.....Kelly and I think that if we
: could get $50,000 for the truck and trailer
: initially we would be willing to make this
: agreement: If a person would invest the
: money in the restoration which we feel would
: be in the neighborhood of $150,000-200,000
: to complete relative to restoring it to the
: way it looked in its most original
: state.....we would be willing to become
: 50-50 partners in the resale and give back
: the original $50k investment before
: splitting the profits. Does that sound like
: anything you would be interested in doing?
: We are currently in that same negotiation
: with the factory in Pennsylvania but they
: are currently in some sort of transition and
: not ready to make a decision as of yet.
: For the record, I had someone else buy it
: and I bought it from him for only $20,000.
: I wish he only knew how many times that has
: happened. Hey Gerry, wanna sell your crash
: car? lol
