They should donate it to the Connersville Historical Museum to go along with the other cars that were built in Connersville, we paid for it many times over.

Good idea, and attach a sign- "Carbon Motors Con Car!"

They want to auction the car to help pay back their private creditors. They need to pay back C-ville but C-ville isn't included in the creditors.
