Baby Buys Austin-Healey Sprite on eBay

One of Portland's youngest residents is also one of the its youngest shoppers. This lovely young woman who just learned how to walk decided to take things to the next step and buy a retro sportcar on eBay. It's a Austin-Healey Sprite, which looks cute and fun, so we can understand why.

Jokes aside, Paul Stote, a resident of Portland, realized that his baby daughter had played with his phone and made a big on an eBay Motors auction. He and his buddied had been looking at a number of cars online and probably regrets leaving his smartphone unprotected.

A few random taps on the screen and now they own the 1962 automobile which is in really bad condition. "Fortunately, she didn't buy the $38,000 Porsche," Paul said.

They contacted the seller to see if he can get out of the deal but now the family want to keep the car and restore it for the toddler to use once she gets her license.
