so when can I bid on the driver?

This just in. Dale Earnhardt Jr. is selling his silver 2002 Mini Cooper on eBay.

As I type this the top bid is $33,700.00 with 12 hours left to go.

The following are the details of the sale from the eBay site:

Dale Jr. is looking to upgrade his car collection, so he is auctioning his 2002 Mini Cooper. This vehicle, which was purchased new by Dale Jr. in 2002, has been completely modified to provide the ultimate in performance and appearance. With only 3124 original miles, it is equipped with an upgraded computer, exhaust, transmission, clutch, and suspension. In addition, it has an installed super charger providing high-end torque to the 270 hp engine. The interior is custom carbon fiber and chrome plated. All modifications were completed by Mini Mania, the leading tuner in Mini Coopers. Dale Jr. has personally autographed the sun visor, and he is willing to autograph the dash if desired by the new owner. The winning bidder will be given the opportunity to receive the vehicle personally from Dale Jr. at his home in North Carolina. This vehicle is being offered through Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s company, JR Motorsports. In addition, the payment method will be processed through JR Motorsports. Once the auction is complete, we will contact you by phone with further instructions regarding acceptance of loan check or money order, and we will arrange a time and date for you to come and receive your vehicle personally from Dale Jr. You can bid with confidence, and we will be willing to answer any questions regarding the vehicle.

Notice how it says that the winner has the opportunity to receive the vehicle personally from Dale Jr. at his home? Uh yea, who wants to give me the money to bid on this? Anyone? Anyone?
