When I look at what some cars sold for at this week's Barrett-Jackson auction it just blows my mind. The Harley Earl F-88 (Olds' Corvette) one-off concept went for over three mill. Here's some other shockers: 1953 Corvette $594,000 (with only 3 miles on the speedo), the matching 2003 Corvette $297,000 (VIN# matches the '53), 1970 Hemi Superbird $307,800, and a FAKE '71 Hemi Challenger went for $101,520. A faker! There's just too much money in classic cars anymore. I guess there are a lot of rich baby-boomers that want their youth back.
