Probably won't last for long, but what the heck. Once I saw that it's still in Pittsburgh...

Hey Greg, back off I want that for my birthday at the end of the month ;) (altho where the heck would I put it?)

Seriously though, I realize this is kind of bad Ebay protocol but could you tell me if you're willing to pay more than $100 for it? Cause I probably can't go over that amount and won't even waste my time if not ...

Does it come w/ the padding for the seats? Does it come w/ the restraints?

What do you do with the car? You certainly wouldn't want to sit down in it for any length of time the way it is now. Do you watch "America's Greatest Coasters" and relive the Phantom in the front seat ride? I know, you could make a flower bed out of it!

I would put it in my room and sit in it because my room is themed on coasters it would make a great addition!!

I'd use it as a coffee table or something ;) Actually I don't know what the heck I'd do with it - but I would still love to have it! Headbanging aside, I loved the Phantom ...

I'd have used it as a planter, but it's as high as I was willing to go with over 3 days left.

I would take it to the top of a large steep hill (practically a cliff) and climb in. I would then have someone shove it over the side of the hill and let it (and me) go rolling out of control, end over end, head over heels, slamming into every rock, tree, etc on the way down, and then coming to a stop by slamming into a brick wall at the bottom of the hill. It would feel just like a ride on the original Steel Phantom.

Kind of hard to take a post as objective if a park or coaster name is part of the "user name"

Is that the one Sean F. was trying to pass off on somebody late last season?

That would look cool on my pool deck. Sit in it in the summer, just doing nothing.
