    Can we say "Disney Museum"?

    At it to your other stuff and you could open your own gallery.

    Since the reserve wasn't met, I'm curious to see what the final price will be
    WOW! Now that's what you call a dedicated fan! Next you'll just need those pylons..

    I think I'll get you off the hook and bid 33,001. Then Deanna can breathe.

    Sadly, I walk away from eBay minus one large red monorail.

    And olmec built me that nice long track for nothing.

    Watch it there Lou, you know fine well that's my project and mine alone!
    Now where do you suppose I can get the required 1,600 feet of concrete guide track and the 11.5 million gallons of water?

    Red Monorail for Lou....

    Lou...

    Good News!!!! Disney has another Red Monorail for you to bid on. Be careful I think everyone might get the fever now that you have started this.
