A 14-month old from Oregon used her father’s smartphone to purchase a junked, 51-year-old, British sports car.

KOIN-TV reports that Sorella Stoute somehow managed to access the eBay app on father Paul Stoute’s device. From there, she only had to click a “buy-it-now” option to claim ownership of a broken down, 1962 Austin Healey Sprite with two engines in the trunk.

Paul and his wife decided to keep the car, mostly because it was located just a few miles away. But the family’s home doesn’t have a garage, so the car is currently sitting outside her parents’ condo.

According to Yahoo! Autos, Paul has started a crowdsourced fundraiser to restore the machine since there’s no way he has the skills or the money to bring this thing back to life by himself.
