No "Buy it now!" button?

Screw that!

I'm holding out for a Nimitz Class nuke.  I figure they'll start popping up for sale in 2040-2050 or so.

I saw a article a few days ago about a guy who posted a ham sandwich for sale.

US taxpayers could buy it and let the UN know that it's their new world headquarters.

Duplicate topic.

It is the HMS Vengeance, a light fleet aircraft carrier of the Royal Navy's WWII Colossus Class.
It was loaned to the Aussie's in 1954 and then sold to Brazil in 1956.
It was renamed "Navio-Aeródromo Ligeiro (NAeL) Minas Gerais".

Probably be a bitch to get that back to Illinois.

It didn't say anything about coming with a trailer.

Which end would you set up the steel spinners?

Damn I wish I could go back in time and invent Ebay.  Imagine the cut they get for that auction!
Link Posted: 12/30/2003 9:14:27 PM EDT
I'm going to bid on it.

After that I'll have it towed to CampyBob's place for use as a target at the next Bulletfest.

You could win this carrier off e-bay. Cruise by USN Ports, and see if you can "confuse" any pilots.

Not unlike an Israeli fighter that landed on a U.S. carrier.

And perhaps a "Valet Parking" sign on your own Carrier? [;)]
