Wasn't that a 289....

Think they were alittle short on knowledge about our cars cuzal the alkedabout was emails from the viewers.

But the market spoke.

That makes two of us. Besides, I'm still trying to get my 428CJ together. Would hate to sell her before that gets done. Just ordered a new flywheel for it today. Hope to have the block and heads and other stuff to the engine shop by Friday.

The thing that got me the most was all they could say was it had no real performance goodies on it. Evidently they forgot about the 390 and 428 cars. Still pretty good price for no performance goodies as they put it. Car did better than I would of expected.

it was a 302.

I posted some kind of guess a month or 2 ago. the most I thought was less than half what it sold for.

As they say on Everybody Loves Raymond, "Holy Crap"!

Are the other cars being sold inflated? Or are we finally getting noticed for our rarity? (in other words, are there a bunch of "fat wallets" at BJ right now?) Casey

I just hope my insurance agent wasn't watching this auction tonight. I can imagine his eyes popping out of his head. The TV folks didn't even talk about the rairity of the car. They just mentioned it was a cosmetic package to enhance the car. Little do they know. Let's see if the new owner registers it here on the site. Wouldn't that be a kick in the pants.

Amazing!

While I think the buyer paid a little too much, I'm not going to be shy about posting the sale information on other forums! I'm sure the first guy to pay $50,000 for a Shelby (or fill in any model) was scoffed at for that deal at the time. It all trickles down and helps define the market.
