Bring a Trailer accepted Midlana for listing and requested additional information. This is just the start, as we haven’t yet started the back-and-forth process of creating and reviewing the description.

Started cleaning up Midlana inside and out in preparation of selling it on the auction site BringaTrailer.com. It was a strange feeling, realizing I was likely cleaning Midlana for the last time. Mixed and conflicted feelings, for sure.

After cleaning the engine compartment, I took photos of it with the cover on, then minus the cover, then minus the ducting and intercooler, so potential buyers know what’s inside. This also saves my buddy’s time this weekend when he helps by taking photos of the rest of the car. I’ll send in the photos and description, and it’llĀ  “probably” go live sometime next week. That’s in quotes because BringaTrailer has a slightly unusual business model wherein they have staffers reformat owner’s descriptions. I’m guessing that they got tired of poor and incomplete descriptions causing cars not to sell – and them missing out on the commission. To be honest, I have no idea what it’ll go for, though it doesn’t matter what I think, it’s only worth what someone will pay for it. I’ll still set a reserve in case there’s little interest and someone bids $10 – that would sting. Whoever the buyer is, it’s going to have to be a pretty special individual, someone willing and unafraid to fully understand and be capable of working on all aspects of the car, and who is also be looking for something very, very fast, and is capable of safely controlling it. That reminds me, I need to also create a disclaimer form detaching me legally from the car, because once it leaves my garage, I have no idea what’s been done to it. Anyway, I’ll let you guys know when it goes live.
