How about a 1967 Corvette with 2,996 original miles on the odometer?

McNamara finally parked it for good in the mid-1980s, having been the only person who ever drove it. Only two others had sat behind the wheel, and the passenger seat was never used. It’s never been in the rain; it's never been washed with water.

The sale has been on TV stations and newspapers all over the U.S. The auctioneer figures there will be thousands of people at the sale. Also a few other collectible vehicles will be sold. Even though these vehicles run, I feel there would be some mechanical problems from sitting for over 30 years. I have bought a few old classics with low miles, brakes were froze up, engine seals dried out and deteriorated, antifreeze crystalized, etc. Be an interesting sale. They predict the Shelby can bring around $125,000.

I had contacted the auctioneer about the van. Some very nice stuff, if the van was a Dodge, I would be very interested in it. I have a 76 Dodge van I have owned since 1980, showroom condition, The guy definitely took meticulous care of everything he owned. To read all the stories the neighbors tell about him, sounds like he was a class-act gentleman.

Thanks for posting all the links. I have been following this auction for the last month on several forums. Quite the collector's dream to have that much stuff sold at an estate auction in a small town.

This was the right (and correct) kind of income re-distribution. Everybody was happy.

And who says that if you have money you don't spend it back into the economy. This was a great example of why America was (is at least for a while) the greatest country ever.
