    That was the yellow one, right? There were only twenty L88's made, and that one was a fully concourse restored numbers matching car. Last year of the C2.

    Last year for C2 was 1967, also known as ‘mid style’ Corvettes. A ‘68 Vette is C3. I watched some of BJ this year but missed that particular car. A few ‘67s pulled some good coin. Older Maseratis are usually pretty cheap in comparison and you need pockets in case they need work but they are breathtaking. Poor mans luxury Ferrari.

    Lord knows what it would cost to buy a decent one, but the Fiat Dino Spyder is my dream car in that space. It was built to homologate the Ferrari V6 so Ferrari could race it in the Ferrari Dino. It has Pininfarina coachwork, and it's just a gorgeous car. There is also a 2+2 hardtop version that Bertone built. The problem is that a nice one is probably $150 to 200k or so, so I'll be limited to drooling over pictures of them.

    Yeah, kinda did.

    Allow me to brighten the mood.

    Barrett-Jackson just sold a first edition 2022 electric GMC Hummer for $2 million, allowing me to add a story to my newscast slugged "BJ $2M HUMMER."

    Blashemy I know but IMHO that looks very close to a .................69 Firebird.

    Then you need a better picture from another angle. There is a little similarity, but it's leaner and curvier.

    This will give the collectors a collective jolt.

    Funny thing about the Shelby that went on Saturday night.......

    The reserve was on until 5 million......I don't know how much they had to have to get the reserve off, but I'm guessing Craig Jackson went up to them and said either I'll pay the difference of what it brings against what you need to avoid the shame of a no-sell or help me out a little bit on the reserve......

    If you say you'd give a kidney for a classic car, be careful what you ask for. A former editor lost his bladder to cancer caused by medication. He used his settlement to buy a 1969 Camaro SS ( which he let me drive), and divorce his alky wife.

    Probably gentle compared to watching Mecum's son tweak, twist and cajole sellers during his family's auctions.
