Well, I couldn't resist when I saw the Space Mountain Vehicles appear on Disney Auctions. I bid on two before I finally won one.
At first Disney told me that I had to sign a release before they would ship and that the entire process would take about 6 weeks. Two weeks into it, I hadn't yet received the release forms, I received a call from a local shipping company that I had, "a very large shipment from Disney".
Well, I rushed home and cleaned the garage like a madman that night. The next day, my vehicle arrived. It was rather dirty as it appears that it was stored outside, but I'm working on cleaning it up and I am enjoying every minute of it.
I'm curious to know if anyone else on the board has purchased a ride vehicle, especially one of these, as I have some questions and would like to discuss restoration plans.
PS While I very much enjoy the merchandise on the auction site, purchasing anything always seems like an adventure.
