Any cool businesses for sale?

Seeing that thread about the life/career change I thought I'd take a stab in the dark....

I'm retiring & would like to buy a business that's related to cars. It needs to make enough net that I can uproot the family & move there. I want to help run it & I'm a documented hard worker. But I don't want to end up running a restaurant, something cool. Yes maybe a cool restaurant.

I even found a way to legally become a Defender "manufacturer," but it didn't seem like there was enough market for it.

Any ideas?

I was out at this shop (http://www.pikespeakrovers.com/) to buy a Disco rim and thought this is a perfect shop to buy and build! It's literally a perfect set up. My only bad thought was that the owner would assign emotional value to any sale.

But if I were looking for a LR shop to own this would be it! Plus RockWare is really close!!

Are you prior military? If so, 7-11 offers a veterans program if you want to get into the gas station business.

Given the stale old stock there that undetermined time may be quite some time. Still, I have love for dap given they got my spare back in the fight in a pinch. And you'd be living in VT...
