Bring the Maxwell home!

I have the clipping where this car was purchased at an auction in the 80s.  Happily, it went to a museum in Frankfort, Indiana where it was housed for decades.  I drove down from Fort Wayne to see it and sit in it.  This is the only Maxwell that I have been able to fully authenticate as being used on Jack's program.

And I just bought it for $11,000 on an auction in Tacoma, Washington.  

With the 18% buyer's premium and transportation costs to get it from Tacoma to the San Francisco Bay Area, I estimate that we need around $15K.

*  Donate $50 or more and you can come stand next to it and imitate Mel Blanc
*  Donate $100 or more and you can come sit in it and get your photo taken
*  Donate $1,000 or more and you can come drive it (CAREFULLY!  A LITTLE!)

All donations are tax-deductible, as the IJBFC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.  Any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me, and is a dream come true for Benny fans everywhere.
