oops, I won something on ebay

I wasn't trying to, but somehow I managed to win https://www.ebay.com/itm/363526658338, which is a really, really big pile of parts in Fairfax Station, Virginia.


I get the seller the option of backing out on the deal. He didn't take me up on it, so now it needs to be boxed and put into a uhaul, a really, really big uhaul, or I have to make a dozen trips with my suburban.

Anybody close to it that can help me pack it up this weekend?

I own like 2 dozen vintage mercedes in various states of disrepair. Other than the spare tires, I doubt there's a single thing in that parts pile that will help any of them get back on the road.

Ooops. Looks like you just will need to open up an eBay store.

The seller just confirmed that he's reluctantly OK with the transaction as he has to move.

We guestimate that it's going to be 2 trips, that's an even thousand miles for me from NY to VA to my storage in PA and then repeat that before going home and sleeping for 2 days.
