The town of Buford, Wyoming – population 1 – was sold for $900,000 to an unidentified buyer from Vietnam on Thursday after an 11-minute Internet auction that attracted worldwide interest. The tiny Western town garnered online viewers and bidders from 46 countries for the sale of 10-plus acres with a convenience store, gas station and modular home located in southeastern Wyoming between Cheyenne and Laramie. The buyer, who wished to remain anonymous, flew to Wyoming from Vietnam for a purchase he likened to “the American dream,” according to a statement released by Williams & Williams, the Oklahoma auction house handling the sale.
Damn, I want my own town. $900,000 is a lot of money, but it’s most definitely not outrageous. Just imagine having your own town, being the mayor, you could even get a few hot chicks to live in the town with you – the possibilities are endless. You’d never have to wait in line at a restaurant, mini-golf course, or barbershop. It’s just ideal… Who cares if it’s in Wyoming? This Vietnamese dude was right, this is the American Dream.
