Are you serious?

Still $100k more than I would give for any one of them.

It's the "why" of the whole drag it out that puzzles me. Why would you want to see any biz go down? Why would you want to see any individual lose their job? Why would you want to see an man that has been so dedicated to what he does lose it all? Why would you want to see a part of a sport you participate in fail?

Only thing I can figure is they're "Chit Wad REGGIE Fountain Haters".
Fixed that for ya.

On a personal note I take it less that they want the company to fail and more that they just want Elvis to stay dead.

When it was announced that other companies were interested in buying Fountain I saw a large number of posts about how they hoped it went well, etc. Just shows it's not Fountain THE COMPANY, but Reggie that they want gone.

Thanks! I realize that for some that may well be the case.

However, "Elvis" has not left the building. Guess they will just have to adjust.

[QUOTE=LapseofReason;2972075]If Hustler or the Oxford group owened it there would be more money and more jobs with Reggie still the CEO/CFO there isnt any money to hire people. Reggie can build boats but cant do math.




The Liberty Group has some deep pockets and I'm pretty sure they can do math....you can speculate whether Reggie was or was not prudent with company funds in the past, but as things are now he will certainly have to operate under the guidelines of Liberty

Yes the rules are going to change and hopefully it's not too late but I think it would have been better if Hustler owened it, they would have had Reggie do what he does best and they could been the bean counters. The big influx of money would have meant more jobs and not trying to get by for a year or two at best. You have to wonder if all the Kat Killer crap was the last straw, he had to have spent a ton of coin going to Poker Runs with 2-3 race teams and choppers, camera men...... just to try and prove a point that didn't matter to most boat buyers.
