I know which two cars I want. Now to only raise the $100,000...

I liked that little Flash FSI viewer thing they have. It's just like the Hollywood image viewers like in Blade Runner or Super Troopers.

One cannot deny that the National Socialists had a snappy sense of style that Focus on the Family lacks.

Alas, the car I really want, the Jag from Harold and Maude, is not on the list.

Smooth. Actually, way too smooth for me. Everyone would assume I was the valet.. or stole it.

How much is The Car?

This link makes me sad. I need a 1958 Plymouth.

The Fury should go for more than estimated unless the modern transmission is a complete hack job. Which is may very well be it can be tough to convert a newer auto to the push button style.

This 66 Charger would also be a smokin' deal at the estimate if it doesn't have a wart someplace.

I'd love to see them get the estimate for this 66 Newport. I've got the Canadian version of this car in hardtop form and I hadn't realised they were starting to apprciate so much. I don't know how much "#1 Hero car" in a movie I've never heard of adds to the value but even cutting that in half these cars are worth more than I thought.

This link makes me sad. I need a 2019 police Spinner.

Jack Karaoke: I find it kinda ironic that George Barris invented the chopped lead sled-style Merc, yet the one in the Barris sale isn't one he built.
