Paul Stoute said he got a notice from eBay congratulating him on his purchase.
He was the proud owner of a 1962 Austin-Healey Sprite; the total cost: $225.
He realized that baby Sorella made the purchase while playing on his smartphone.
Paul said his goal is to fix up the car in time to present it to his daughter for either her 16th birthday or high school graduation.
In the meantime, he has activated facial recognition technology and has a new pin code.
