Click through and read the story – it’s the apocryphal “drove it for a bit, then put it away in a barn” story.
I’ve mentioned before, or maybe it was in a paper, that I am a car guy. Have been for a long time. Longer than I care to mention, really. Can’t help it – it’s generational.
Although the ’67 Corvette has LONG been my favorite this one, despite having all the “good” options (427 cu in/390 hp, factory side pipes, Kelsey-Hayes knock-off wheels), isn’t quite what I was looking for. I’d rather have a Marina Blue convertible without the stinger on the hood scoop … which is probably just as well since I expect this one will fetch over $2,000,000 when auctioned in April.
Sorry – no relevance to transportation and land development … except this is exactly the kind of car you thought of when you thought of the open road and moving to that new development in the suburbs back in 1967 …
2014-04-12 UPDATE: I was way off. Final bid was $725,000. Had I known that I’d have bought two!!
