Q:  is there a radio with the chair? if not would i be able to put on in? thanks
A:   Yes, but it is not working, unknown what is wrong.

Q:  I just wanted to say how impressed we have been to follow BOTH of the chair auctions and to see how the Proctor police has handled the idiotic comments! You have given us so many laughs as we also drag race at BIR, so have followed this chair story since it broke! We only wish that the original bid of $40,000 would return because with the way the economy is right now, your community could really use it! Keep up the great work, keep the humor coming and best of luck on the sale of the chair – I hope it continues to go MUCH higher!
A:   Thank you

A:   Please check with your State DMV Office

Q:  Hello, I have a couple of questions: 1. Was this whole DWI in a chair staged? 2. If I win this chair can your dept. show proof that this was a real DWI case? 3. Is there any law that would prevent me from giving the chair/toy back to the man that lost it after I win the auction? Thank you
