True. Guess they could put a poll of charities on their site...

I always buy raffle tickets for reputable charities. IMHO, reputable charities and churches provide more effective support for people with needs than our federal and state government

It just seems so bizarre and abstract. I'm not sure how you got from Point A of seeing the project on their site and Point B of "they should raffle it for charity." It's weird dude, just weird. I think weird things but I don't make a thread about every weird thing I think.

Guess we think completely differently then... I guess it is kinda how CJ's went from point A (hey, here is a FB) to point B (hey, let's do a restoration and show it on the website).

It is just a poll dude. Chill the **** out.

What does the size of the company have to do with it?

I'm surprised you don't want to give your car away when it's done?

You asked, I told. I'm not unchilled at all, but you seem to be. And obviously I'm not the only one who thinks this is strange.

IT'S A POLL... Nothing else... Not legally binding... Just a thought I had.

Mod's, can you just delete the poll and the thread....

It makes a difference wether a collector or a big corporation does any type a charity auction/raffle. The corporation has more money to give than an individual. For example I gave $1000 dollars to scholership funds last year. I gave it to help the charity. Lets say I 100k to keep number easy. This means I gave away 1 percent to charity. Many corporations give money to charity also. Lets say a corporation makes 10 million then they would give 100k to give a 1 percent donation. If a company is healthy and making money, it benefits them to give to charity. The positive PR and tax break probably makes up for the loss. I dont think wareagle was outta line posting it here. Might have been better to contact the company though. I only shop with companies that benefit it's employees and community. I dont go to walmart or sams club. CJ probably does other types of charities and I think it was a good suggestion for a charity. If not this car maybe another car that everyone could hype up so it can raise a bunch of loot for the charity. I would definately buy so tickets to support such a thing. The other thing is that it is posible the owner give to charities under his own taxes not corporate taxes. We would never even know this. If he did it under the corporation, he gets all the positive feedback.

I get all that, my point was, why arbitrarily pick this project and say it should be auctioned for charity?

The same charity we donate to every year when we have our Customer Appreciation Day.

The Four Diamonds Foundation

Last year we donated $30,000 to them last year.

Anyone following this build knows we are far from being complete so nothing is getting auctioned off any time soon and to be honest we don't know what we will do with the car once it's done it is a out of the blue kind of poll but hey it's whatever.

GENERAL DISCUSSION is just for that general discussion about whatever you wish to discuss generally,....

I musta missed the sentence where WAR EAGLE stated that the car should / must / hasta be donated to charity, it was a simple question, not a statement of fact or even a suggestion by any means that I can see.

Lemme copy and paste his post to be sure,....

Not a flame towards anyone, but I'm always amazed when members take the time to go out of their way to state more that whats being asked.

Should CJ's auction the Forgotten Fastback for charity?

Yes or no
