Tomorrow is going to be fun. Bid is already at 250k.

It says $295K on my machine :o

With the color and the manual transmission it's a hard one to beat. Just the combination I would want if funds were unlimited.

These cars are meant to be driven so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all cleanCS

Thanks I was wondering if it was you. In any case it's a great looking car, not perfect but then none are.

Great for the seller! Its a beautiful car and best to the buyer....

I do remember a bunch of people that bought KR convertibles at $350k and 69 convertibles at over $300k, for the most part it hasn't worked out well for them.

Iíve learned that not everyone that buys cars buy them to make money. Some people buy them because they want one and can afford it. Plus you never lose money on anything till you sell it. I told my uncle one time your buying all the wrong cars for investing. He said I donít buy cars to make money I buy cars that I like. Iíve got plenty of damn money and I donít need to buy cars to make money. Although I was raised you donít buy anything you canít make money on as Iíve got older I can appreciate my uncles thinking. Get what you want while you can get it. Like my dad used to say Iíve only got one person to please and thatís my damn self.

If you can afford it and want it really bad then buy it. I spent so much money for my collection and I will never regret it also if I loose money. Some people buy new cars and loose 50% in 2 years on them, that's how it is.

I think you can accomplish both.... if you are patient, and can buy right.

It's nice to be a responsible caretaker, and also get a little reward on the back end for your efforts.

Going to SoCal. 30s buyer who is into high end European sports cars. “ Don’t know much about Shelby’s but I’m learning”. He just wanted a cool Shelby and really liked the color. Going to drive it, not judge it.

Im not saying everyone is financially motivated or should be.

BaT is 21st century tulip bulb madness.

I paid more than I should have for my '67 GT500. Thankfully that was in 1982. I paid 50% more than it sold for new! People thought I was nuts!
